    Pre-Calc for Independent Learners
    Pre-Calculus Teaching Textbook is designed specifically for independent learners, with more explanations than many other Pre-Calculus programs, in a user-friendly, self-teaching format! This complete set includes DVD-ROMs that contain multi-media lectures for each of the lessons, step-by-step explanations to the five practice problems that begin each problem set, plus solutions to every homework problem and every test problem! An answer key and a test bank are also included. This is a remarkable method to teach a complex topic.

    Please note, Pre-Calculus requires a TI-83 Plus calculator (by Texas Instruments).

    Lessons include:
  • Function Basics
  • Polynomial Functions
  • Rational Functions
  • Exponential and Logarithmic Functions
  • Radical Functions
  • Power Functions
  • Triangle Trigonometry
  • Trigonometric Functions
  • Trigonometric Identities
  • Vectors and Polar Coordinates
  • Systems, Matrices, and Determinants
  • Analytic Geometry
  • Sequences, Probability, and Statistics
  • Introduction to Calculus
  • Additional topics!

    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 DVDs with down-to-earth, step-by-step multimedia solutions for every problem in the book, plus an additional DVD-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?

    Teaching Textbooks Pre-Calculus January 23, 2017
    Reviewer: Ben Buchanan, age 17 from the boondocks  
    Some more challenging concepts are covered here. I recommend an Algebra 2 review to anyone who has completed Algebra 2 a year or more previous. The companion CDs are a must. They cover every problem, and work through each one step by step.

    My daughter knows more math than I January 14, 2013
    Reviewer: Gina Mac  
    My daughter uses this completely on her own. She hasn't needed additional help, even once. I'm slightly concerned it isn't advanced enough, because a lengthy section of the book was devoted to concepts she had covered in Algebra 2, although I think some overlap is good. I will update this review after she takes calculus :)

    An awesome math program! June 1, 2012
    Reviewer: Mom to 14  
    I have been using Teaching Textbooks for 3rd grade through pre-calculus. This has been great for the children who love math, and for those who don't really enjoy it. This explains the concepts in ways they really understand, and it's fun too! My son took the pre-calculus CLEP after taking this course, and scored well enough to earn college credit. We switched to this after a very stressful experience with Saxon Algebra, and found this so much easier.
