Algebra 1 Version 2.0 CDs only
CDs-only Option for Teaching Textbooks
While most families purchase the
Teaching Textbooks Algebra 1 complete set
(including the instructional CDs, consumable workbook, and answer booklet), using the CDs alone without the workbook may work for some families. The CDs give your student clear, interesting lectures for every lesson, along with detailed step-by-step solutions for all of the math problems.
Less Expensive, But at a Cost
This option will obviously be less expensive than purchasing the complete set. But keep in mind that your child will need to keep a notebook to copy the problems into to work on them, and will lose the other benefits of owning the workbook, including written lecture summaries for them to refer to while doing the problems, and the convenience of carrying their work with them away from the computer for added mobility after they’ve watched the lesson. Please note that you also will not receive the answer booklet with the CDs-only purchase.
About Teaching Textbooks
Math 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 home school 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.
Designed for Independent Learners
However, the Teaching Textbooks series is produced with home educators in mind, so it tackles those issues head-on. Firstly, since the program is designed specifically for independent learners, it offers far more explanation than any others on the market, and the tone is friendly and conversational. Ultimately what 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 complete step-by-step solutions for every test problem.
Friendly Conversational Tone
The lectures - one for each lesson in the textbook - provide hours of instruction. Students will appreciate listening to (and watching) an explanation for each lesson rather than reading it out of a book. Designed for homeschoolers studying independently, Teaching Textbooks uses far less irrelevant jargon than other textbooks, while still retaining all the terms that students need to know for those important standardized tests, and the tone is friendly and conversational. This is a brilliant idea, long overdue and skillfully done.
Workbook Includes Lesson Summaries
The Teaching Textbooks program also incorporates a workbook in which your child will do daily math assignments. Designed specifically for independent learners, the Teaching Textbooks workbook contains a summary of the lectures from the CD, which allows your child to review key points from the lesson as necessary while working the problems. The workbook also comes with an answer key and a test bank.
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?
