STMath

This is an online math curriculum for elementary and jr. high levels. It presents concepts visually and uses creative problem solving to build understanding. A bit pricey, but it appears to be a very solid approach to math learning.

Math on the Level

This curriculum has a very different approach to math learning. It's designed to allow teaching of concepts as the child is ready to learn them, and uses hands-on, life-learning activities. Materials include several books with activities for different areas of math (operations, fractions, money and decimals, geometry and measurement) plus games, resources and record keeping. There is also an online practice component available. *A note about price: it is a multi-year program, so the overall cost is very reasonable.
