Teaching Textbook Math 4

by Cassie
(Idaho)

This is our first year using Teaching Textbook Math 4 program and we are loving it. We have the CD ROM version and it is saving me so much time on math. Before using this curriculum my son would be very frustrated, but he seems to understand this program. I like the parents grade book section also, it allows me to see if he is struggling in certain areas. This program can be expensive so I suggest trying to find it used. The customer service hotline was very helpful with resetting the software. It was easy to install and easy to use. I would highly recommend this curriculum.


Cassie, thanks for taking the time to share how your family is benefiting from Teaching Textbook Math 4 curriculum. Parents looking for an easy-to-use and time-saving math curriculum, will definitely find your comments helpful. Blessings, Heather :)

Teaching Textbook Math Review

Teaching Textbook Math Review

Home educator eliminates homeschooling math tears, struggles, and temper-tantrums with Teaching Textbook Math...

I've tried many homeschooling math curriculums over the years with my daughter (my singular sensation; a senior this year) whom I've homeschooled since 4th grade. We've both shed many tears at math time. Finally we found Teaching Textbook dvds - and we love them! We've used them now for Algebra 1, Algebra 2 and Geometry. I wish we had found them sooner so we could have also gotten in Pre-Calculus before graduation!

This curriculum is a little pricey on first glance - compared to buying a Saxon book, for example. But trust me, its well worth the price! We buy and sell ours via our homeschool group to keep costs in check - and to pass on the opportunity to help another family struggling with math.

This program comes with a complete set of DVDs that walk through every single lesson - like a private tutor. This is an incredible program and it changed the way math gets done in our house. My daughter now is making A's in math. (She still doesn't particularly like it, but she's passing it finally - and without the tears, struggles, temper-tantrums, procrastination, etc.!)

Excellent review of Teaching Textbook math curriculum - thanks for sharing! Blessings, Heather :)

Teaching Textbook Math 6

by Erica L.
(Flushing, MI)

Teaching Textbook Math 6 eliminates math troubles for one struggling homeschool student...

My daughter was having a lot of trouble with SOS Math last year (in 4th grade), so this year we are trying the Teaching Textbook program. We did the placement test and found that she needs Math 6, instead of 5. She absolutely LOVES the program. It thoroughly explains how to do the problem and even gives students practice problems to make sure they understand it. All of my kids will use Teaching Textbook math from now on!

Yay! Thanks for sharing your Teaching Textbook Math success with others, Erica! Your thoughts are appreciated. Blessings, Heather :)

Teaching Textbook Math 5/6/7

by Michelle
(Fairfax, VA, USA)

Homeschooling mom shares some helpful pros and cons of Teaching Textbook math program; read her review for grades 5, 6, and 7 to learn more...

We really LOVED Teaching Textbook Math for grades 5, 6 and 7. It helped my daughter to understand and enjoy her math assignments. I also found the company to be good to work with when I had questions. The immediate feedback from the automatic grading was invaluable for my daughter who was not at all interested in redoing a math paper that I had graded. In her mind, she had finished math -- why do it again. Since the computer told her if it was right or wrong as she answered the problems, she did not feel like she was doing it all again. It was just a part of the process of the current assignment.

On the downside, I felt that it did not have enough problems. If there was one topic that my daughter was struggling in, it would have been nice to have an "appendix" to just do 5 or 10 (or 20) extra problems. There would have been no need for great graphics or audio -- just a list of problems and the immediate grading. I would also like to be able to reset the extra questions so they could be used as a speed test or end of year review at a later date.

I want to stress again how great the program was for us. But I will add that when my daughter tried the SOL (Standard of Learning) tests that our public school posts online -- there were several types of problems that were not covered at all in Teaching Textbooks. So if you want to keep up with your local school system, you should cross check the table of contents with info on your local schools website. All in all, I would still use it again and would give it a 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Michelle,
Thank you for the well-written and informative Teaching Textbook Math review for grades 5, 6, and 7. I love that you included both the pros and cons of this homeschooling program, so parents will know what to expect if they choose Teaching Textbook for their family. We use a different homeschool math software program and sadly, it doesn't have extra problem either. Like you, although we like it, here have been a few times I have wished there were additional problems when my daughter was struggling in an area. I will pass your comments onto Teaching Textbook. Blessings, Heather :)

Teaching Textbook Math 3

Eliminate Homeschooling Math Frustration

Eliminate Homeschooling Math Frustration

Homeschool mom shares how Teaching Textbooks math 3 curriculum turned her third grade math-hater into a math-lover! Read her story...

I have been homeschooling my son for 3 years now. He is in the 3rd grade. Until now, he hated math. I ordered Teaching Textbook Math 3 last week. He started this program Monday, and he is already on lesson 16. He LOVES math now! He doesn't want to stop "playing" on the computer.

The wonderful thing about this homeschooling math curriculum is that it automatically grades and tutors the child. When he gets an answer wrong, it will discuss the problem with him to let him see where he went wrong. I can go into the gradebook to see if he looked at the solution to the problems he had gotten wrong, and if I want him to redo that lesson, I can delete it so he can start over again.

This curriculum is so self explanatory that my 1st grader is working on it also. She loves it too and she doesn't normally like to work on the computer. If you aren't able to work on a computer to do the work, it has a workbook that is just as comprehensive as the cds. I would recommend this program to anyone who has a homeschooler, or even public schooled children, who are having difficulties in math.

Lynda, I love your Teaching Textbook review! Thanks for taking the time to help other parents who are looking for homeschool math curriculum for their children, or who have children who hate doing math. I appreciate your thoughts! Blessings, Heather :)

Teaching Textbook Math Grade 6 Testimonial

by Gina
(Fairfax, VA)

Teaching Textbook math program provides a great opportunity for students to see and hear a lecture for each lesson. The program is a little weak in its concept reviews, as compared to Saxon; however, the audiovisual teaching process is a real plus.

Thanks for the Teaching Textbook testimonial, Gina! Helpful! Blessings, Heather :)
