Thinkwell Economics: My high school senior is using this Economics program. So far, she really likes it. The teacher is excellent and it's nice that she can pause and rewind if she didn't quite understand something. We also bought the notes so she can read up on the lesson prior to "class" to also facilitate comprehension. Not Christian based, but neither does it promote any political agenda. Teaches the facts of economics in a thorough objective manner.

Thinkwell helped a lot because it gave lots of very good diagrams and models. I was having a really hard time with polysaccharides and functional groups as well as cellular respiration and photosynthesis, but after watching the Thinkwell CDs, I understood those parts and did really well on the midterm. I learn better by seeing examples because they stay in my head and it’s easier for me to recall them on an exam. Even hearing George Wolfe’s voice helped me. I thought that was really cool how he was part of the teaching aspect. It wasn’t just fa...(more)

Since I started homeschooling 3 years ago, I felt I was killing my daughter's love of Math (she is gifted, while her sister is special needs, so I've left her to figure out Singapore Math on her own, which she managed well, but without any enthusiasm). Thinkwell is clear and interesting to her, she goes at her own pace. I check to see how she's doing and that she's completed it. For the placement, she was between 2 levels- if she weren't gifted I'd have gone to the easier level, but we went up instead, and its been a good challenge. She no l...(more)

After reluctantly persevering with a couple of other math programs, we finally found Thinkwell. The humorous lectures are concise, easy to understand and delivered in manageable sizes. We don't have to endure the tedious repetition found in so many other programs. Having lessons online is a win for our family - this medium is so acceptable for the current generation. Our kids much prefer to do the work on the computer than in a workbook. Doing the exercises online saves us a lot of time too because the marking and correction is done immediately...(more)

We LOVE Thinkwell math! My daughter always hated math, no matter what method we tried - until we hit pre-algebra and tried Thinkwell. Wow! What a turnaround! While I won't say my daughter now loves math, she actually does seem to enjoy it, and I will often overhear her laughing out loud. And since the teacher is a college math professor, I know she's getting the solid foundation she will need for the future. Not only that, Thinkwell provides me with all the information I need to track how my daughter is doing at each step along the way. Wh...(more)

When my 11 year old began watching the Beginning Algebra video- his two brothers- ages 8 and 16 joined him and they all watched the first few lessons together. They laughed and enjoyed Edward Burger. They are totally taken with him. They can't wait to continue-these summer vacations keep getting in the way! They have recounted some of the lessons at the dinner table and to friends. These are the first math lessons that have captured their attention and Burger makes it relevant and enjoyable. We will continue to try other courses.

My son used Thinkwell intermediate algebra, college algebra, trigonometry, and is now using Professor Burger's Calculus course. I can't say enough about how much he learns from this method of learning, and how much he likes it! He likes it so much that his younger sibling asked me to buy 8th grade math for her. Prof Burger makes total sense and explains very clearly. He's funny, too. I know some people, those of a serious bent, can be taken aback by his style (silly at times, or just nerdy-silly), but he grows on you until you enjoy him so m...(more)

I used Thinkwell once before when studying Precalculus and was well pleased with how Professor Edward Burger explains math concepts. I am struggling with Geometry, so I decided to take his course. I have been able to understand the concepts of Geometry that stumped me before.

I think you all at Thinkwell did a wonderful job. The biology CD is very entertaining and Dr. Wolfe makes biology fun to learn. I would love to get the CD for pre-cal and calculus. Please respond and let me know if this is possible, and if it is, put my order in now.

My child does not love math. I'm really hoping we can change that one of these days. It feels, to me, like Thinkwell is a move in the right direction.

This is our first year homeschooling so we can't compare this product with others. We experimented with several of the trials offered by various companies before deciding to go with Thinkwell for 7th grade math.

So far, I'd say it's been a success. She's still not in love with the subject but Professor Burger does manage to make her laugh sometimes. I think the short "bites", along with...(more)
