The series of Teaching Textbooks for upper grade math is excellent. As a mom and former public school math teacher, this book is a valuable instructor for difficult math concepts. The complete package helps the student move at a steady pace and receive instant feedback. It is also helpful to the parent who may feel a little rusty in algebra! This book is a true home school treasure.

This initial impression of Teaching Textbooks was written by our teen daughter.
I think it's helpful to read the comments from actual users of a specific curriculum. Sometimes that says so much more than an adult's comment who just "looks" things over. Our daughter always "disliked" math, and let me tell you, as her mom, it was thrilling to have her suddenly excited and enjoying her previously "worst" and least favorite subject.

Review of Teaching Textbooks

One of the subjects in homeschooling that I find most difficult and boring is math. I have always been better at writing and reading. However, this does not mean that I am bad in math, but that I struggle more to grasp the concepts; or find it harder to remember the material. No matter how many math programs my Mom searched out, it didn't do any good in changing my view of math. Some programs I did better in, but I was not necessarily having an enjoyable experience with any of them. I always tried to make math be at the last part of the school day, because I hated even thinking about doing the problems. If I started the day with math, it usually left me in a bad mood. I tried playing music in the background, but nothing availed. I believed that there was no possible curriculum that could change my perspective on math.

However, as I completed Math-U-See's Algebra I, my Mom showed me a description of a math company on the computer, Teaching Textbooks. She showed me a demo, and it seemed interesting. "It certainly wouldn't hurt," I thought, "to try something new." I thought the material might be a little better than Math-U-See, but not by much. I didn't wait with much anticipation, but when Teaching Textbooks did arrive, there was something different in their appearance.

Thanks to one of the other reviewers for the advice about not being able to install the CD's on more than 2 computers. However, there's good news about that -- I checked it out on the FAQ's page of the Teaching Textbooks website, and here is what it says about that:

"Can I resell all my Teaching Textbooks?
A. Yes, you most definitely can. And there is absolutely no limit to the number of times our products can be resold. Just remember that if a Math 5, 6, or 7 product has already been used on more than two computers, the buyer will need to call our offices so we can quickly give him/her a new installation code."

So no worries if you buy used. And to me, this speaks volumes about their commitment to serving the customer, since they don't make any profit when a customer resells their product, and they have to go out of their way to accommodate that.

A caveat about my rating though: I have not used their Algebra 1 at all. I have used their Algebra 2 with my older child, who appreciated it so much that I'm considering replacing the expensive Algebra 1 curriculum I already own with the Teaching Textbooks course for my younger child. So, since Amazon requires a rating, I rated based on our experience with Algebra 2.

THis is a wonderful textbook. I've taught my kids now for 9 years and these are a God send.. but for 200 dollars you can buy this directly from Teaching textbooks for 184.00 for the complete text with solutions, test, and cd's. I would buy it new and save the extra bucks. Not taking the risk on returns or damaged products. After all 200 bucks is 200 bucks and not pocket change. [...]

My daughter likes the funny problems. I like that the cds provide an extra, more visual and auditory method of receiving the lecture if you need it. She normally just uses the text and only uses the cds if she needs help.

Great program!! This can be installed on more than one computer. So far, I have installed it on 4 computers. You do have to call them after the 2 install but it has never been a problem. Great customer service.

Great product that makes Algebra Easy. I am using this with my 7th grader that has always been advanced in math. We have used this for half the school year and I have only assisted her with 1 problem. The computer program that comes with this teaching the child how to do the work and also goes over each homework problem if they happen to get any wrong.
