Yes, I've read the pinned post on math programs and did a search for TT and Algebra. What I need is some honest feedback at this point.
Our DS is interested in science and technology, and always did well in math. Until algebra, where he's encountered some difficulty. We're currently using Holt through publisher with online materials. However, even with some repetition he's continuing to have difficulty with some of the concepts. I'm wondering if something more straightforward would help. I'm drawn to Teaching Textbooks because of the online gradebook and constant feedback.
Would TT Algebra be a solid course? He did the placement tests but I'd not be comfortable in placing him into Algebra 2 at this point. (I'd thought TT was a year behind, but not sure about higher grades).
He's currently between 1/2-2/3 done with Algebra in terms of going through book, but I don't think his skill level reflects this. I'm thinking about starting him at beginning and testing through the TT Algebra I until he has difficulty, and then starting lessons at that point. Is this a good approach?
Any other feedback on TT Algebra, good or bad? This is a very intelligent kid but he does have some difficulty focusing. We'd always thought he was geared to go the math/science route but we're off to a later start and he really is showing more strengths at this age in some other areas.
