Thank you Teaching Textbooks for helping my children excel and for keeping me sane! Following recommendations from a long-time homeschooling friend and a current high school math teacher, we decided to give Teaching Textbooks a try. My seventh grade homeschooled twins (whose learning styles couldn't be more different) used the Pre-Algebra program last year. They both took the ACT in the spring and scored exceptionally well in math. My public schooled high-schooler also used Teaching Textbooks as a "tutor" for Algebra II and will be using it again for Trig. He has ADHD and struggles to stay afloat. Unfortunately, The public school Common Core textbooks leave us all confused. But, the Teaching Textbooks' approach makes even the most complicated problems seem doable.The audio portion engages the easily distracted student and gives him the opportunity to review difficult material as often as needed.
I strongly disagree with the previous reviewer about the problems being too easy. The problems aren't too easy, they're simply explained in a way that's easily understandable. I also disagree about there not being enough examples. One of my favorite things about Teaching Textbooks is the constant review throughout the year. Each lesson builds on and reviews previous lessons essentially guaranteeing mastery. The automatic grade book is also a wonderful feature. My only complaint with Teaching Textbooks is that more subjects aren't offered!
**On a side note, we were able to resell last year's materials for 90% of the purchase price! Thank you to the creators of Teaching Textbooks for an incredible product!
Teaching Textbooks Pre-Algebra Text & Answer Key, Version 2.0
April 14, 2015
I use this book to teach my middle schooler for pre-algebra. The content is way too easy. The problems are repetitive and also way too easy, compared to the textbooks used in the school. The explanation of the content is ok. But there are not too many examples. As a result, I need to find another book.
