  • Over a dozen more lessons and hundreds of new problems and solutions

    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 Pre-Algebra 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?

    Pre algebra March 17, 2017
    Reviewer: Katie Wilson from Bethany, MO United States  
    My son and I absolutely love this product! I makes my son love math! Easy to understand lectures and I love the fact that I keeps things fresh in there minds! For instance things you done in lesson 1 there will be a couple questions in lesson 100! I love the fact that not only can he do this on the computer but he can also do it on paper! This is a great product and we will be finishing this in the next few weeks and we will be buying algebra one!

    Teaching Textbooks Pre-Algebra January 30, 2017
    Reviewer: Eric, age 13 from Kentucky  
    This math makes school work fun!  I really like doing it in the computer & how it kind of feels like you're playing a game.  It's nice to have a break from a workbook & get on the computer & do my math.  The lessons aren't super long either, so I don't get burned out doing so many problems like we have had with one other curriculum we have used before.  The lectures are really helpful & it helps my mom so that she can be working with my brothers while I do my math lesson by myself.   I never want to use any other math program.  This is the best!

    Teaching Textbooks Pre-Algebra 2.0 Complete Set January 16, 2017
    Reviewer: Emily Ishler, avid crafty reader, age 12 from Ohio  
    I've almost completed 3 years of Teaching Textbooks (6th-pre algerbra).  With all of the books, I like that they have interesting real life problems. And they also have funny problems that makes it more fun and encouraging to get through the lesson.  Even though I'm in Pre-Algerbra, I like how they break up the lesson.  So I am still reviewing things I've been learning during the past few years.  It is a good review and makes the lesson go by faster.

    Pre-Algebra December 19, 2014
    Reviewer: Kaitlin  
    As an 8th grader I have never been so happy in math. My brother and I actually "Fight" over the computer. we just can't get enough. this is in high contrast to last year, when I was frequently in tears by the end of the math lesson, and got farther and farther behind. we have tried 3 other math programs and checked out others, but this is by far the best!
