Thinkwell pre-calc

Recommended Posts

So, continuing our quest for a good fit precalc for ds, we're now looking at Thinkwell. 

In searching the boards, I saw this post from Jann in Tx http://forums.welltrainedmind.com/topic/367652-thinkwell-algebra-2-vs-pre-calculus/?p=3800978

in which she says "It is a SUPPLEMENT... not enough practice problems for the average student. The videos cover all of the bases--but it really lacks the practice students need. "

If you were going to add in extra practice, what would you use? Is there a way to use Aleks to add additional problems to the Thinkwell and ensure adequate grasp of material?

How many questions are there if you know offhand? 

this kid is coming off TT Alg 2 so he's used to lesson + about 5 practice problems related specifically to the lesson & 20-25 problems which are a mix of current & previous topics. He's a good but slow worker & that's about his daily limit for math.
