We have used about 4 of the levels now and have NOTHING negative to say! It is an amazing program that I recommend to ALL of my friends and any homeschooler I meet! It allows our kids to work independently and they have gained sooo much self-confidence. We have many learning disabilities in our home...some with major auditory & visual processing disorders, as well as fetal alcohol effects, and they ALL do amazing with this program. I don't know how, but it works with all 5 of our kids that have used it, and I am so thankful for it! On a side note...we only buy the CD's alone...the workbooks etc are optional & we have never needed them (saves money). And it is VERY simple to reuse the CD for another child...I am computer illiterate & have called the customer service a few times when forgetting how to 'erase' a CD for a new student to use, and they have always been so wonderful!! It is worth every penny to purchase this program!! (just wish they would make other subjects!!)
The program is very easy to use and my daughter loves it! I love how it checks her work and I can see the results easily. I don't see a need yet for the printed book or answer book. Next time I will just get the discs! Love it!
This math program has saved my sanity! Some say it is below grade level so I put my gifted 5th grader in Math 6th and he has done well and gets his work done in no time flat. He does 2 lessons a day and does not complain at all. (This is after 2 years of struggling to get 1 lesson done a day! When I asked him what the difference was he said his previous math curriculum bored him to tears!)
My daughter always struggled with math before but she loves Teaching Textbooks! She loves that she can listen to the lectures by herself. If she forgets how to do something she will go back to the lecture that explains it and listen again. Also, the fact that the program lets her know if she did a problem wrong right away has been a HUGE help! (This ensures that she is doing it correctly and not learning something incorrectly and then having to RELEARN it again the correct way after I grade her papers)
