    About Teaching Textbooks

    Designed for Homeschoolers
    A number of years ago we did the unthinkable and took a poke at a sacred cow when we said that we didn't like the conventional big-name homeschool math programs. Though some families were steadfast in their defense, there has since been an increasing number of families who have come to realize that math programs originally designed to be used in government schools are wholly inadequate to meet the needs of home educators.

    You Don't Have to Be a Math Teacher!
    What is wrong with adapting a school-based text for home use? There are a couple of significant issues with doing that. First, because a typical school text assumes a knowledgeable math teacher, the explanations are often meager and brief. If you double as a math teacher, this will present no problem to you. However, many parents either did not take upper level math as a teen, or if they did, the process is just a distant, unpleasant memory. So sparse explanations in typical texts can be frustrating to both child and parent. Second, government schools' math texts often contain excessive use of terminology, making simple ideas seem complex.

    Combines a Teacher and a Textbook into One!
    The Teaching Textbooks series is written with home educators in mind so it tackles those issues head-on in a rather innovative way, by combining a teacher and a textbook into one. Firstly, their textbooks, since they were designed specifically for independent learners, contain far more explanation than any others on the market, and the tone is friendly and conversational. Because the Teaching Textbooks series was designed for homeschoolers studying independently, it uses far less irrelevant jargon than other textbooks, while still retaining all the terms that students need to know for those important standardized tests. The textbook also comes with an answer key and a test bank.

    Step-by-Step Multimedia Explanations
    Secondly, and what ultimately sold me on this program, are their computer CDs with down-to-earth, step-by-step multimedia solutions for every problem in the book, plus an additional CD-ROM with complete step-by-step solutions for every test problem. The lectures - one for each lesson in the textbook - provide hours of instruction. They cover the same material as the written lessons in the textbook, but many students prefer to listen to (and watch) an explanation for each lesson rather than read it out of a book. (Note that you'll still need the textbook, because it has all the homework assignments and the answer key.) This is a brilliant idea, long overdue and skillfully done, with many hours of instruction.

    Review Method
    The Teaching Textbooks series has been field-tested with outstanding results. Like other quality math programs, Teaching Textbooks uses the review method because it is a proven method for ensuring children are able to master difficult subjects such as algebra and geometry. Students using Teaching Textbooks are fully prepared for College Board examinations and college courses. Enjoyable, efficient, and effective, what more could you want from a math program?

    94 Lessons November 15, 2010
    Reviewer: Tawn B from Shelton, WA United States  
    My family has loved the Teaching Textbook series so it wasn't a question as to what brand we would buy when my oldest reached the pre-calculus level.  It is a similar format to the lower levels of other Teaching Textbooks.  However, some of the explanations in the book are not as detailed as in lower levels.  There are also only 94 lessons -- hardly enough to count as a school year.  I do appreciate the practice problems scattered throughout the book that prepare the student for the SAT though, and my daughter likes the way it walks her through the buttons to push on the recommended graphing calculator.

    Helpful to my whole family October 20, 2008
    Reviewer: Susan D. from Milwaukie OR  
    This product is easy to use and does a great job in explaining the lesson to the student.  The student can work independently.  That is helpful to my whole family. I will definitely purchase more for my other children.  My only suggestion would be to ofter more of the same product for younger children!

    A great program that frees up more of my time October 20, 2008
    Reviewer: Joyce E. from Redmond, WA  
    We have enjoyed the teaching textbooks. I do sit in on the class with my sons every few lessons to make sure they are understanding what they are learning. Sometimes they need more explanation. Over all it's a great program that frees up more of my time.

    Makes math relevant October 20, 2008
    Reviewer: Cathy from Buffalo, NY  
    The Teaching Textbooks are done in a conversational format that my children preferred over the "most" popular other curriculum (S***n).  It also weaves in interesting historical and scientific facts that illuminate math's relevance to the rest of life.
