Algebra 2 for Independent Learners
Algebra 2 Teaching Textbook is designed specifically for independent learners, with more explanations than many other Algebra 2 programs, and covers the terms that students need to know for standardized tests. If your child has started, but not completed, an Algebra 1 program, you will find that there is enough review that he can just begin with Algebra 2.

Complete Set Provides Everything Your Child Needs
Most families purchase the complete set, including the instructional CDs, consumable workbook, and answer booklet. The CDs give your student clear, interesting lectures for every lesson, along with detailed step-by-step solutions for all of the problems. The workbook not only provides a convenient place for students to work on the problems without having to copy each one onto separate paper, it also gives students written lesson summaries for them to refer to while doing the problems, and gives your children the option of carrying their work with them away from the computer for added mobility after they've watched the lesson.

CDs-only Option May Work for Some Families
Some families choose to buy the CDs only for Algebra 2 and use them without the workbook. While this option will be less expensive, 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 mentioned above of owning the workbook. Please note that you also will not receive the answer booklet with the CDs-only purchase.

Extra Workbooks Available for Additional Students
If you appreciate the benefits of using the Teaching Textbooks workbook, you'll be pleased to know you can also purchase extra workbooks for additional students without having to buy a complete extra Teaching Textbooks set. If you have two students doing this grade together or another student coming up to this grade, and already own the CDs, click here to purchase an extra workbook. Please note that the CDs are required for this course, as the workbook alone will not contain all of the instructional content.

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
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. 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 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.

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?

    An answered prayer January 16, 2013
    Reviewer: Timberdoodle fan in Washington  
    My daughter loved this program. Literally, she loved Algebra!! She completed it all by herself in the tenth grade. All I did was grade the tests, and she received an "A" for the course. Those Harvard trained brothers explain things well. I don't know what we would have done if we would not have had this course. I do not have time to go through a textbook and relearn Algebra 2, and my husband does not have time to tutor math. Some people tell me they do not use it because they do not feel it is rigorous enough. I cannot speak to that. What I do know is it helped us get farther in math than we would have achieved without it.

    Finally, my kids like math! June 1, 2012
    Reviewer: Chris  
    We have used other Algebra programs over the past 20 years of homeschooling. This has been the only program that my children have felt they learned the subject. We started with Algebra 1 and then when on to purchase 2. Now my younger children what the earlier grades. We did not purchase the CDs. However, I've been told that we should invest them by the two children who have completed the course. Although I did algebra in highschool, and went on through Calculus, I can't remember enough to teach it without taking the class with my children. Not a good option. With Teaching Textbooks, the children are learning at their rate, but, on their own. I'm needed only to ensure the work is being done. I'd recommend Teaching Textbook for both the student who loves math and the reluctant learner.

    Teaching Text prepares one for college May 31, 2012
    Reviewer: Happy Mom  
    I have been excited about Teaching Textbooks for years now! Out of 4 children....3 have used this program. One of my daughters is now taking college classes and truly believes that Teaching Text prepared her for the first college math class she took...College Trigonometry. She had only finished Algebra 2 (& Geometry) with Teaching Text by the time she took the college class. The independence this program gives the student is incredible and the self-grading and instant feedback is wonderful!! I would always get behind in checking my kids' work before Teaching Text. My youngest is now in 5th grade and moving along at an excellent pace and we both love it! It is a homeschooler's answer to prayer.....math can be fun!! Thank you Teaching Textbooks!!
