    Alg. 1, 2011: DVDs with automatic grading Answer key and Tests Spiral-bound textbook no writing, corners slightly turned up on answer key


  2. OK, so this is our fifth year homeschooling. I really thought by now I'd sort of have this all figured out. The last 4 years I used Life of Fred for math for both boys. It was great up until last spring when nothing seemed to work. We tried out Teaching Textbooks 3.0 in August and TT got 3 thumbs up - both boys and I liked what we saw. So we are about 4 weeks in TT. My 14 yo is using the Algebra I and my 11 yo is using Pre Algebra. I am literally losing hair, sleep and of course my sanity over the fact that they both refuse to write out their work on paper. They insist on doing it in the
  3. 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. Questi
  4. I just wanted to share that this year we're using Teaching Textbooks 5 for my daughter's fifth grade math curriculum. (Last year we used Oak Meadow's built in 4th grade math curriculum; prior to that she was in public school). We just got this year's standardized test scores back, and I wanted to share the math portion of her results. We used the CAT/5 from Thurber's Educational Assessments. With the Stanine Scores,the highest you can get is a 9. The "National Percentile" number means she scored as well as or better than that percentage of students nationwide who took this test. R
  5. Hi all! I'm looking for Teaching Textbook veterans to share their experiences. I just switched my upcoming eighth grader from Saxon to Teaching Textbooks Algebra. He has also just finished Apologia General Science. Physical Science comes next in line. I've heard that TT can be slow and that Algebra is equivalent to most people's Pre-Algebra and half of Algebra. I don't mind this since he's in 8th, but I'm concerned about science. He'll be starting Physical Science this year and Biology his ninth grade year. If TT is really a year behind, will he be lost in his science? I'm thinking if
  6. Dd will be in 10th next school year and possibly taking Geometry at co-op. They use Teaching Textbooks. This year dd has been thriving with Alg 1 using Tablet Class. I'm wondering if we should just stay the course with TC or let her take TT with local teacher once a week?! Can anyone give me their thoughts on TT or TC's Geometry? Pros, cons,...... Btw, she says she doesn't like Geometry. Thanks🙂
  7. ​My 11 year old son, who is finishing 5th grade, has not had a great Math experience in life. His sister has done well using MUS from the very beginning. But when I did it with him, he just looked at me perplexed over and over again for months. He just didn't get it in kindergarten, we tried again in First grade and got through most of Alpha. But then he hit another road block. I took him out and did general things--teaching the clock, money, basic geometry, using the Math Mammoth Blue series topics. But there was too much on a page and it overwhelmed him. I tried to go back t
  8. We have been using TT3 this year with my 3rd grade daughter (this was our first year at home) and she's not super excited about it. I thought it would be a great fit bc it's on the computer and I loved it bc it was hands off for me. I will say that I'm not super impressed with the rigor of it and it hasn't gone as deeply into some subjects as I wish it would have (fractions for example) so we've been supplementing a little bit with just a workbook. I'm trying to decide what to do for 4th grade - do we continue with TT4 or change to something else? I've been looking into Beast Academy bc s
  9. My 7th grade son struggles with math. We are using TT for the first time this year. He tested into the grade 7 book, but I feel like he's not doing well. I don't like the second chances the program gives. He's dyslexic and has focus issues anyway, so I feel like having a second try at each problem gives him liberty to not pay close attention to his work. For that reason, I have a rule that if he has to redo three or more problems or gets three or more wrong in a lesson, he has to redo the lesson again the next day. Am I being unreasonable? He's only on lesson 17 so far and he's had to do
  10. Can you help me pick an algebra course that my daughter can possibly complete in the next 4 months? It will be her only course work over the summer. I can help her, but she is so resistant to sitting down with me to do the lessons, I am looking at something she can do more on her own, like Tabletclass or Teaching Textbooks. She has gotten through the first five chapters of Jacob's, and has done ok with it. She's not a great math student, (the first half of this year was spent reviewing pre-algebra) and she puts a lot more time and effort into her other assignments. I want her to take an onlin
  11. My 15-year-old was really enjoying the Life of Fred sequence through Advanced Algebra, but he was struggling mightily with the Fred Geometry book at the end of his 9th grade year, so this year we switched to Teaching Textbooks for Geometry. It has its problems, but overall it's fine. However, now I'm in a bit of a quandary regarding what to do for next year. Any suggestions regarding LOF Trigonometry versus Teaching Textbooks Pre-calculus versus another pre-calculus program? This son would do better with something that teaches directly rather than the LOF/AoPS approach, and it really needs
  12. I have used Saxon for all of our homeschooling career, and both of my oldest two have gotten really bogged down especially when we hit Algebra 1. The oldest would spend hours and hours and hours getting overwhelmed by how much work there was. We tried Teaching Textbooks, but he panicked when it was so easy, because he wanted to be prepared for public school in high school. By his choice, we (painfully) finished Saxon, and he hit public school and has had a wonderful math experience. He's good at it, and has had very little homework, yet has done very well on the county's supposedly very rig
  13. I'm still needing help choosing Geometry for my to-be 11th grader, for next year. Any opinions on Teaching Textbook v2? My son found the first version to be not very helpful when he took the ACT. Is the 2nd version better? Jacobs Geometry? I'm not a maths person, nor is my daughter, and we can't do videos unless they're on disc, because our rural internet is on satellite, so we can only download videos between midnight and 5 a.m., when they won't negatively impact our monthly bandwidth allowance(yes, this really is as much of a pain as it sounds like it would be). Thank you!
  14. To say I have a non-mathy son is probbably understating it a bit. For most of his elementary years, we were stuck on 2nd and 3rd grade math - he was unable to really get past multi-digit subtraction with borrowing. We didn't even START multplication and its concepts until the second half of 5th grade! He has LDs (working memory, sequential memory, and visual memory deficits) that have delayed his learning math, but it seems that the last year to year-and-a-half, things are starting to make sense. He's not fast, by any means, but he is learning much more easily now than ever before. This ye
  15. Can someone tell me what are the big differences between the old and the new versions on Teaching Textbooks? Does the child HAVE to do all the work in the workbook unlike the samples I see on their site?
  16. Saxon Math with Saxon Teacher DVDs or TT DVDs? Between these 2 choices, which would you choose and why? One of the students has dyslexia and dysgraphia, if that makes a difference. Thanks. Edited to add: I am leaning towards TT because the kids can type their answers onto the computer. With Saxon they have to write everything out. I really like Saxon though and both these would do well with Saxon.
  17. So the kids and I have decided to move away from Saxon math for the upcoming school year. My youngest ds has been working on Math Mammoth & LOF successfully after leaving Saxon after completing Saxon 1. My oldest dd (rising 8th grader) has done well with Saxon but really wants a change. She tried out Teaching Textbooks at our convention last week and loved it. She will be using TT Alg. 1 with LOF....supplementing with Khan Academy if needed. I hope I'm not messing up her future line of excellence in math. :sad: Here is where I'm running into some issues. My rising 5th grader sco
  18. She isn't a reader, so something online-website?-would be best, though a book with step-by-step explanations that are crystal clear would be great. TIA !
  19. I'm trying to decide on a math for my upcoming second grader. I've been kicking around the idea of doing Singapore with her, as I feel that they seem to give students a great foundation in mental math skills. What I'm wondering is if this would be wise if we plan on going to something like Teaching Textbooks 3 for third grade? I'm open to suggestions right now. We've used CLE up until now, but it's not a good fit for this child. She hates the long lessons, and takes forever to do them each day. She's very bright and picks up on new things quickly. We've not had any trouble with her b
  20. Hi~ My daughter ( homeschooled K-8) attended our local h.s. this year for 9th grade and has decided she doesn't want to go back next year (Hooray!). She is most decidedly not a mathy person and had a horrible experience with a notoriously difficult pre-algebra teacher before we just pulled her out of the class altogether; her confidence was totally plummeting thanks to the aforementioned teacher. Anyway, we want to get her going with Algebra, with a decent pre-algebra review as part of the program. How would the new TT Algebra I measure up? I have heard that TT higher-mathematics voc
  21. Hi, We use TT with my son. I am not looking to change programs or debate how rigorous TT is. :) I spent an hour searching threads last night and could not find the answer anywhere. So, I am sorry if I missed it and am asking a repeat question, if I am please post the link here. I am just having so much trouble fully figuring out the new boards. I seem to remember a thread where someone was saying that one of the levels between 6 and Algebra could be easily skipped if you were using 2 programs or your child was really doing well. That 7 and Pre algebra both contained a lot of revie
  22. And had NO other options, which would you pick for HS and why? I have read all the old threads about MUS and TT and I think I am worse off than when I started. I don't want to hear any info about any other programs (I'm already getting a Lials text), just which of these you would use if these were your only choices.
  23. This is our first year using this program. I love it! Kids love it. It is working out fabulously! Now my question. In TT 5, and so far 6 dd 5th never once used the textbook. In TT Algebra 1, dd 9th has never once used the textbook. How probable is it that they will not ever use the textbook in Geometry and beyond? I am just wondering if I can stop buying the textbook.
  24. Very tough to get over all the negative I've read on here over the years. DS is a generally bright kid and hard worker but more English/ history inclined than math. He is competent in math, though. His 8th grade standardized test scores had him in the 95th percentile in math. He slogged through Algebra 1 in 8th grade. He did okay but it took him forever. We are 8 weeks and 4 chapters into Jacobs Algebra. He just doesn't get it at all. So tired of so much angst over math with a kid that really is plenty bright enough to get it. DH is a former algebra/geometry teacher so he
  25. We are using TT (I have BJU Algebra 1 and a few others for supplement as needed) and we are using the new upgraded 2.0 version. I know all the stories I am reading about are stories before the upgraded scope and sequence but I just need success stories to help me stop second guessing my decision!
