Thrifty Teaching Textbooks Tips

End your homeschooling math struggles! Homeschool mom recommends Teaching Textbooks and shares some money-saving tips; read her review...
We initially choose a free Youtube-like approach to math because my daughter is an audio-visual learner, but there were too many unanswered questions with the videos. Then another homeschooling family's graduating daughter told us to try "Teaching Textbooks pre-Algebra", which was eighth grade for us. The newer version was too expensive for our budget, so I purchased the older version (first edition), slightly used. It was a blessing!
We used it for about eight months and we saw a peak of interest in my daughter's attention to detail. I relearned a few things as well. The real life illustrations, the examples, the solutions to the problem were all inclusive; which was perfect for me because math is not my best subject! While my daughter received a firm foundation in pre-algebra, we received a bang for our buck. I was able to purchase the entire set (textbook & cd's) for $25 on an Ebay auction. The set was in perfect condition with only about 1-2 pages written on. So two thumbs up for Teaching Textbooks!!Hi ShQuita,
Thanks so much for sharing your experience with Teaching Textbooks. Other families with audio-visual learners will definitely find your post helpful. Thanks too, for sharing some money-saving tips - your thoughts are appreciated! Blessings, Heather :)
