Weekend giveaway: $135 package from Uzinggo math and science

Uzinggo math & science
This giveaway has ended – thanks for your interest!

Welcome to this weekend’s giveaway, sponsored by Uzinggo:

Uzinggo is an online science and math program for middle and high schoolers. It’s like having access to a private tutor, but at a fraction of the cost.

Uzinggo tries to make learning as real as possible with real-world simulations – the more real a lesson is, the more students learn.

Uzinggo is unique in that they have their own built-in gaming system so students receive that additional encouragement to keep learning.

Through earning Zings (points) and badges as they complete more and more ZingPaths (pre-defined lesson plans), students are able to purchase virtual goods and even enter drawings for gift cards. Uzinggo is the gamification of education.”


They have over 1200 lesson activities that fall into three category types:

Lesson Tutorials: 10-30 min Interactive lessons containing multiple sections, associated worksheets and assessments that let students participate in virtual experiments, scientific inquiry exercise and problem-based learning

Animations: Standards-based, 1-3 minute videos used to introduce and reinforce a specific concept

3D Interactive Models: Vivid, dynamic models designed to explore, visualize and develop a deeper understanding of concepts.

They have a 3D model of the human body where students can pick apart the human body part by part (by organs, the different body systems and structures and all the way down to the bone level).

uzinggo 2

The lessons are structured to:

  • Provide interactive, dynamic environments in which students can discover scientific processes, facts, properties, and concepts by performing a series of guided tasks and examining the results. Each task has its own specific feedback structure, and students can practice each task multiple times using different examples.
  • Allow students to make mistakes, understand the reasons for mistakes, and receive relevant, timely feedback.
  • Teach scientific concepts in context, with strong real-life and historical connections.
  • Help students extend and deepen scientific inquiry skills with engaging, context-rich, step-by-step interactions that favor critical thinking and problem solving over rote memorization of facts.
  • Help students to formulate, test and answer scientific hypotheses. Students begin by making intuitive, contextual and testable predictions or hypotheses. Students then use active inquiry to test their predictions before reviewing and revising these predictions based on the results of their inquiries.
  • Support teachers/parents with complementary materials that provide background information on the content, additional real-world examples, suggestions for overcoming common student misconceptions, detailed solutions to student worksheets, and lesson-planning tips for introducing, reviewing and extending the concepts.

    I liked simple homeschool and uzinggo on facebook.

  3. Our children are 24, 22, and 11. (The older two were homeschooled, earned their degrees and are enjoying working in their chosen fields.) We use keyboarding, math and geography games on the computer to help enhance learning. We also have Discovery Education Streaming that we use some for history and science. And Khan Academy is always there when we run into trouble! Thanks for the chance.

  14. Rebecca Pineau says:

    This would be such an answer to prayer. My son is in 11th grade and is 16. He is very technology minded and we have struggled to find a math curriculum that challenges him but doesn’t lose him. He is also doing Chemistry this year and the science looks awesome. I alo likes Simple Homeschool and Uzinggo on FB. I can’t wait , I hope I win.

  15. I have 3 sons, ages 10, 6, and 2. We watch their math videos on the ipad, play learning games, and my oldest is learning typing on the computer. I tried to avoid technology in our first year of homeschooling thinking it was “bad” and that I needed to be more old-fashioned and book based. But I listened to Dr. Kathy Koch at the Cincinnati Homeschool Convention and after talking to her one-on-one realize that to completely eliminate technology is to set my kids up for a disadvantage. She also reminded me that if I have a techno-savvy kid, to allow him to prosper in that world. I try to incorporate more technology this year and want to do even more next year!

  16. I just “liked” both your FB page and Uzinggo!

  17. We use some online games and math and science apps.

  18. I liked both on Facebook!

  19. My girl Josie is five. We are having lots of fun learning together. Just yesterday we were finding shark teeth in the stream near the house. This site looks amazing. I would love a chance at it for me to polish up with and share with her as she likes. For sure lots to be learned. Thank you April

  20. My children are 13 and 16. We use technology in our homeschool for researching topics to go along with our science studies. Uzinggo looks absolutely amazing and would enhance our learning for sure. Thank you for the opportunity.

  21. My kids are 5 and 8. We recently switched to a math program on the computer, and it has made our school day so much smoother! I’d love to incorporate more technology!

  22. We have three kids at home aged 15, 12, and 9. My youngest uses several iPad apps for reading help and my older two do Rosetta Stone languages.

  23. I like you on fb!

  38. We have a 16, 15, 13, 11, 10, and 9 year old. We use technology for almost every subject in some way. It has helped with making our textbooks come alive, giving us access to videos and interactive material on almost everything we are learning. Khan Academy has been a wonderful resource for math tutoring. Of course, youtube has a song or video about every topic we are learning in science and history. We have fun with finding a song about almost anything we type in. 🙂 Technology has definitely made homeschooling more affordable for our family. This year I’ve been able to use free online classes through our public library system for our high schoolers, and didn’t buy any new text books other than math consumables. That is a first for us! Thank you for a chance at the contest!

  39. I liked both of the facebook pages

    I have a 21 year old in college studying biology, an 18 year old who just graduated homeschool taking a year to work to save money to begin college next year (he is still required to study and I would use this primarily for him), and a 6, 3, and 1 year old. I use technology extensively for homeschool – after having taught my older set using workbooks, notebooks, textbooks that were cluttering up the house and kept getting lost, I have really found the online sites to be super helpful in ending the “paper chase”. My older sons use Khan Academy and Crash Course on Youtube, my little ones use ABCMouse, Starfall, and IXL sites, plus Youtube videos. We also use Kindle learning games like Dr. Panda and Where’s my Water as a reward that still teaches some thinking skills.

  50. Amy Strouth says:

    Hi! My girls are 8 and 4. We use technology as a tool and an enhancer to our learning every chance we get. Online, my youngest enjoys ABC Mouse. Currently the older one is enthralled with mice and uses the internet to learn about everything mice! My oldest loves to use Word for the clip art…which she prints, cuts out, and glues to big posters she creates. They say things like, “Turn off the tv and pick up a book!” or “Save the Animals!” And, of course, we use the internet for other things like when we need to answer to a question that comes up and we cannot make it to the library in that moment or, my newest favorite, to look up videos of different ballets on YouTube. (My youngest can’t get enough of EVERYTHING ballerina!)

    I have different apps on my phone for things like reading and math for my girls to busy themselves with in a pinch. (Think lines at the store, etc.) And they love to use the voice recorder on my phone to record themselves. The oldest records herself reading her favorite books and calls them her “Homemade Audio Books”! And my youngest uses it as a sort of audio journal since she can’t write her thoughts down yet.

    The television is my least favorite of the technology we implement, but we try to be wise with it. We do not have cable or a box, so all that is available to watch is movies. We love to watch the movies after we finish a book (currently looking forward to watching The Little Princess and James and the Giant Peach!). And when we’ve decided we need a break and give in to using the tv just for some downtime and entertainment, we (mom and dad) are sure to use the content to start lively family discussions about anything and everything. We’ve even been known to pause the movie for a second to discuss something and then get “carried away” and never push play again! 🙂

    So, while we are a simple family, we do understand that in this Information Age it’s hard to avoid the influence of technology. But we also know that, if you are wise with this resource, you really don’t have to!

    Thanks for the opportunity to share a chance to win! 🙂

  51. Lately it’s been Duolingo and Minecraft Homeschool for us!

  54. Kristina Best says:

    My sons are 10 & 6. We try to use anything free we can find on the internet. My children love the computer.

  55. Jennifer Cowdrey says:

    I have 4 boys, ages: 17, 15, 13, 6, and 1 girl age 8.
    We need to add more technology into our schooling. We use Rosetta Stone for foreign language, Math U See for math, and my older boys are in two computer based pilot programs. That’s it.
    The world they will eventually work in, revolves around technology and I want them to be prepared.
    Thanks for this opportunity to win a program that will give them more technology exposure.

  61. My kiddos are 11, 9, 7 year old twins. We use technology in a couple of ways, but I would really like to incorporate it more. If it hadn’t been for internet access when we first started this journey, I would have been completely lost on what to do. Our current math curriculum is in PDF form, but I have printed out and bound a book for everyone. I also found a good phonics program for free online. My oldest two use the computers for their typing lessons online, and my oldest uses her computer for research a lot. I’d really love to use more technology and have been looking into more and more websites.

  62. Liked on fb!

  63. right now, we use a mix of games and learning dvds along with books

  64. Illya Gonzalez says:

    We use technology in our math curriculum. The girls are doing Teaching Textbooks and it’s a computer based curriculum.

  65. My children are 13,4 and 1. I am on the hunt for an online math program to help my 13 yr old with math. He is struggling and I think something interactive and fun would help. We currently us Quizlet app and website for drilling.

  66. I like both pages on Facebook.

  67. My children still at home are 12 and 15. We use the computer for a math program, math drills, looking up areas of interest, putting books at the library on hold, writing reports, writing to friends and relatives, tutorials, ordering curriculum, reading magazine and news, and viewing movies. Homeschooling has surely changed since the 80s and 90s when I started with my grown children!

  68. We use an iPad and we type. We also use You Tube for things like Horrible Histories. Thanks for the giveaway!

  69. Tammy Jones says:

    My kids are 11, 9, and 3. We use Teaching Textbooks, Electronic Field Trips, and math games on the computer.

  72. Penny Cox says:

    My kids are 15 and 8. We had a house fire three weeks ago and lost everything. Having something on line appeals to me because if we had that then it would have been easier to keep school going. Using ipad math apps right now.

  73. my kids are 10 & 11 and our family computer as well as ipads are used for techy learning!

  74. Melissa C says:

    My kids love the computer! We use it a lot for re-enforcement of skills and knowledge, and my older daughter, 11, uses it for research. My 5 year old son loves to play “games” after his finished with some of his lessons.

  75. My homeshooled children are ages 6, 9, 11, 14, and 15. (These are my 5 youngest of 10 children; the eldest being 28.) We have homeschooled all of our children, although the first 2 went to high school. “Back in the day,” we used PBS television, CD-roms, and videos from the library for “tech-learning.” Now we have so much more available to us. This year my daughter is taking an amazing anatomy and physiology class online (through Landry Academy). Other than that we still use CD-roms as well as extensive Internet use and online materials when free. Unfortunately, much of the good stuff out there comes with a hefty price-tag which a family of 12 has a hard time affording. This science and math program being offered today looks awesome and I know my children will enjoy the free 3 days of using it.
    One last thing as far as technology goes: It’s a great motivation/disciplinary tool as far as getting the kids to get their school work and daily chores done in order to have the privilege to use the computer. When they ask to go on, all I need to do is say, “Did you finish all of your work?” If not, they know my answer and then the rest is up to them!

  76. Stephanie says:

    Our kids are 13,11,9, and 8. We use technology in our home to add to our curriculum. We use apps on our ipad for extra practice in almost every subject!

  77. Sarah Jean says:

    This looks very interesting! Anything to help us on our journey in high school is great!

  78. My kids are in 5th and 6th grade. We use the internet for additional resources (like art and music samples), online games for typing, spelling, and math practice, and iPad apps for both learning and fun.

  79. I have 15 and 12 year old homeschoolers in my house….their older siblings are finishing high school and in college. We use the computer for everything research oriented! My 12 year old watches math lessons on a disc, then works problem sets. I would LOVE for him to have the benefit of this Uzinggo science program! My 15 year old uses the computer to keep up with her Science Olympiad group and for writing. I would love for her to have the benefit of Uzinggo math! This program is something I have always wanted to try.

  80. My children are six yrs and four yrs. I use a e reader to hold their easy to read books . And they also use a laptop for practice typing words and just playing and getting used to computer.

  81. I homeschool an 11-year-old boy and have a 6-year-old in private school. We use technology for research, math and science.

  82. We have a 12 and 14 year old and we use Minecraft, Doulingo, take online classes and use other various reference sites for research.

  111. My children are 14, 12, 10 and 3. They have laptops and ipads for their project research, math drills, blogging and educational apps. Uzinggo would be a fantastic addition to our home school world.

  112. My son is 12 and sadly I am not doing the best with technology partially because I am not so great myself. We use a computer and an android phone, but haven’t had cable tv since everything went digital! We don’t understand dvr ing, but j=know that it records shows. I have plans for an ipad mini near Christmas. I really want him to have an understanding technology unlike his mom and dad.

  113. My children are 12 (m), 8 (f), and 4 (f). I am homeschooling my 12 year old son and 4 year old daughter. We use a lot of online games and resources for educational activities materials. Technology helps the kids learn and makes it easier for me to teach them things that I don’t know well. The more fun it is and competitive, the better. I want to win the science and math program giveaway as it looks like a great resource.

  114. I have 10, 7 and 8 month old boys. We use the computer to play games and do research. We also watch documentaries often.

    My children are 13, 11, 9, and 8. We have iPods and iPads as well as a desktop. My kids definitely know more than I do. This looks like a neat program!

  123. My beautiful children are 3 and 8. We use the internet to provide open source learning opportunitues in our home and computer programs as a creative outlet. Uzinggo looks great and we would live to give it a go. Thanks for sharing

  124. We homeschool both our boys ages 12 and six. My 12 year old uses an online curriculum for the majority of his classes, and YouTube is our biggest ally. We mix and match often to keep his interest up and to challenge him. Our six year old is severely disabled, so in between all his therapeutic exercises we often resort to various online programs to help his visual and learning processes.

  125. Kids are 11, 9, 8, and 5. We use technology mostly for research and sometimes for online math games.

  126. Carol F in New Mexico says:

    My son is 7 years old. We use technology in every subject. I rely on it for many things and it’s an integrated part of our curriculum. It isn’t, however, the main core of our homeschool, it’s used to keep things interesting, help explain things that I’m having trouble getting across, and to give a different and broader perspective to the topics we are studying. I love it and I’m thankful for all the great stuff out there.

  127. My kids are 8 and 6. We use computers for our spelling program and to watch scientific videos. I anticipate that as they grow we’ll use more!

    We use lots of apps on the ipad and free printables from homeschooling sites. My 11 yr old is great at math & science. This would be a wonderful win for him!

  130. My kids are 14 and 11, and we use our computer a lot for schooling.

  131. Cindy Padin says:

    My children are 13, 10, 4 and 2. I use technology by allowing them to watch videos and play interactive games that teach them in all the different subject areas. It allows them to get something other than just reading about the subject.

  132. Suzanne Watkins says:

    13 year old twins; use tech for research, Lego robotics, and video learning.

  133. Our kiddos are 18,14, and 7. We use laptop for easy peasy and IXL!

  134. Liked on fb for extra entry!

  135. We have 2 daughters ages

  136. April Berry says:

    My kids at 11, 10, and 7. The kids have iPads and joined the tech club so that they can learn how to get the most out of their iPads. We use the iPad frequently for doing reports because my son doesn’t do well writing, but is brilliant at speaking and storytelling.

  137. My children are 10 & 8 years old. We’ve used DVD’s, video streaming, mathletics, Internet games, Netflix, and iPod apps to make learning interesting. We enjoy learning together!!!

    Hi! My children are 14 and 11. We use technology a lot. My children have both learned skills from you tube. They both enjoy podcasts (have you tried radio lab) We also use khan academy from time to time. I would love to use this curriculum as my oldest loves science and needs to be challanged and my youngest doesn’t love science but enjoys it if it captires her interest. Thanks for this chance 🙂

  139. Positive learning in this home, for my eleven year old, includes using the computer for math (Teaching Textbooks 7), science (Exploration Education Advanced physical science), vocabulary, and additional subject research (printable materials, articles, how to do.) My child thrives with visual representations for learning. Uzinggo would be a great resource, helping to keep learning exciting.

  140. My kids are 14, 13, 11, 9, 7, 3, and 9 months. We use any and all technology we can get our hands on! It’s like having another teacher in the house, and takes some of the load off me. Plus the kids usually love it!

  141. I am currently homeschooling our 16 year old, but have homeschooled our 4 older children through high school. We use lots of multi-media educational products due to a number of learning differences.

  142. I liked Uzinggo, and already had liked Simple Mom previously. We were already planning on purchasing Uzinggo>>> so this would be a wonderful “gift.”

  143. I have children aged 17, 15, 13 ,12, 9, 6, 4 and 11 months. Half of whom have dyslexia. One much more severely and it really affects her math. This would be another great tool to help . We use ipad/phone and laptops to help our dyslexic children by using apps and programs that are designed to help them and also to make for fun learning for them all. Thanks

  144. I have 12, 10,8,6 & 2. We use the apps on the ipad, go on sites like brainpop, etc for videos to supplement their lessons.

  145. I like you on FB already.

  146. my daughter is going on 12 and we use electronics as a supplement to her hardcopy curriculum.

  147. I liked Uzinggo on FB.

  148. Our children are aged 17,15,13,9,6, and 4. We use the internet a lot for research and online games for math and geography. We tried Uzinggo on their free trial and LOVED it!

  149. My daughter is 12 and is constantly looking up information online and playing games.

  150. I like Simple Homeschool on Facebook

  151. Taylar Tyson says:

    My children are 9 and 10. We use educational shows, computer apps and Nook for expanding learning.

  153. Jennifer Pendell says:

    I have liked both pages on Facebook for an extra entry.

  154. Carrie Litts says:

    My children are 13 and 16 years old. We use educational apps and games on the iPad and computer, and also science documentaries on television to enhance learning.

  155. Adele Latu says:

    our children are 4,7,9,12. we use technology almost daily in homeschooling. Whether it be word processing or online studies or watching educational videos on youtube or blogs.

  156. Adele Latu says:

    liked pages on facebook also

    enjoy yr sunday..

  157. Moira Bunyi says:

    Our kids are 12, 8, and 5. We watch videos on the web for topics we are currently learning about and our 12 y.o. son uses the web for quick searches. He’s very much into technology so I think Uzinggo could be a good fit 🙂

  158. Moira Bunyi says:

    Liked both on FB 🙂

  159. Karen Miller says:

    Our home school is all about technology! We love online, interactive lessons and despite my passion for physical books – yes a recovering addict 🙂 – I am being trained by my children to buy ebooks! My kids are 12, 11 & 6 and they very proudly love ‘tech’! Have a great day!

  160. Karen Miller says:

    I have liked both on fb.

  161. My children are 11,10,8,6 and 3 we use technology in our homeschool with brainpop, Nancy Larson science, Reading Eggs, and ABC Mouse! my children love brainpop the most out of all those!
