Why choose the Teaching Textbook�?� series over another homeschool math program?
A. There are lots of reasons, but here are the top 3.
First, because Teaching Textbooks�?� were designed specifically for independent learners, they simply have more teaching/explanation than any other product on the market. We realized that independent learners needed a product that contains the maximum amount of teaching, so a Teaching Textbook�?�, with its approximately 700 pages of text and 120 - 160 hours of teacher instruction on CD-ROM, is both a teacher and a textbook combined into one. And the CD-ROM teaching isn�??t just abstract lectures either. There are also down-to-earth, audiovisual step-by-step explanations for every single one of the almost 3,500 problems in the book. Using a Teaching Textbook�?� is like having a friendly tutor available at the push of a button, but for only a fraction of the cost! Other products claim that they can be used without the assistance of a teacher, and this may or may not be true. But shouldn�??t a truly ideal product for independent learners contain step-by-step teacher explanations for all those times when you might get stumped? We think so.
Second, given the amount of teaching that the series offers and the importance of junior high and high school math in college courses and on the job, our program represents an incredible value. For example, the Algebra 1, Algebra 2 and Geometry Teaching Textbooks�?� contain at least 3 to 8 times the amount of multimedia teaching as the nearest competitors�?? products.
Third, because the Teaching Textbook�?� series was designed for independent learners, it introduces proper terminology only after first presenting the underlying concept in plain language. Of course, the series includes all the terms that students need to know for important standardized tests such as the SAT and ACT, but our textbooks do not bog the reader down in highly technical language until students are ready to digest it.
