Ms. Riding Hood Posted July 26, 2008 Share Posted July 26, 2008 I've been searching for some time for a program to use for dd as she grows into algebra age. She is a right-brainer with no math intuition...and no conceptual understanding. I just can't go the Saxon route with her. Today my requested Videotext sampler arrived. I began to watch it, but she quickly took my seat away. I watched from behind as she eagerly viewed the lessons...all of which were much beyond her level at this point. However, she was getting the concepts as they were explained and I could actually SEE things clicking in her brain. And for that matter, things were clicking in my own brain, vwhich isn't especially good at math, either. I haven't watched any of Dana Mosely, but I do think I'm sold on this. I guess that was the purpose of the sampler, after all--to sell me the product. :) Am I just being duped by a slick production? Maybe some people find this tedious or dull, but as one who never understood math even while passing calculus with an "A", I thought it was rather appealing. And more importantly, dd was hooked. If anyone wishes to chime in with good reports or bad, speak now please! I'd love to hear more of both sides. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
