We appreciate you at the Co-op!


My son used Thinkwell math 7 this year. He appreciated being able to listening to a lecture with each lesson. Thinkwell has been an effective teaching tool for him. We will be using it again next year.

This year we used Thinkwell 6th and 8th grade math. In the past we have used Saxon, Teaching Textbooks and for k-2 we have used Singapore for our younger child. We do really like Singapore but out of all the other products Thinkwell is our favorite. Our boys really responded to the instructor. They thought he was funny and that he showed them methods and ways of doing things the other programs left out. Their test scores improved dramatically. We felt it was much more comprehensive than Teaching Textbooks even a year ahead and way more engaging...(more)

We discovered Thinkwell-Math through the Homeschool Buyers Co-Op. My son now says Math is one of his favorite subjects! The lectures are extremely well done--high quality, interesting and even funny! One tip: Be sure to find the link to the suggested syllabus for the course. It includes doing printable review worksheets, quizzes and tests. We came back for a second year and are thrilled to get the discount through the Co-op. Homework is immediately corrected problem by problem so the students know whether they are doing it right or not. Tests a...(more)

We used Thinkwell Math 6 this year. It has been a fantastic year! My son catches on quickly, so the self-checking interactive problems are perfect for him to solidify his understanding each day. One thing I would do differently is to expect him to also print out and complete the 5 problem worksheet each day. I have also learned to split up the Subchapter Review and complete it a bit each day rather than all in one day, which can be overwhelming sometimes.

I appreciate the application "word problems" in Thinkwell more than those I fou...(more)

My son used Thinkwell economics and spent about two weeks in April reviewing using an AP review book and taking FRQs from past AP Macro and Micro tests. He got 5's on both tests! If you use Thinkwell, you should either start the course in August or go at a faster pace, so that you leave at least two weeks of review time in April. It's definitely important to do FRQ practice questions as they are a completely different format than the Thinkwell multiple choice tests.

Thinkwell has been an effective math program for our older children. I am so thankful for this wonderful math curriculum and recommend it to everyone who asks!

We've used Thinkwell for a number of years now, starting with Pre-Algebra and going up to Algebra 2. We all love watching Professor Burger's video lectures. They are long enough to explain things well, and he is not only a great teacher but also very entertaining, which is a huge benefit when trying to learn topics such as linear functions! The content is very rich. My oldest son has just transitioned to our local Running Start program and is having no difficulty in math with this background. Because each course is created online, there isn't a...(more)

My ds age 11 have used Thinkwell pre-algebra and are now taking the beginning Algebra. We will continue to use it in the future. He enjoys Mr. Burgers hummer and it keeps him engaged in the math. The courses are very comprehensive and it is easy for use to tailor the speed of each unit as needed. If he shows he can do the math with the practice test we skip the lectures. If he needs more work we use the problems in the separately purchased workbook. We have tried Singapore, Life of Fred and others. This is the only one he has stayed with ...(more)

As far as learning the material goes, I think having an interactive [video] is a much more fun and a sufficient way of learning. I mean--who really wants to sit and read a dry, boring textbook? Taking quizzes on the web is great because it tells you if you are right or wrong immediately and it tells why or why not. A textbook doesn't do this, and usually if you get an answer wrong you spend a great deal of time flipping through the pages looking for the right answer. The online notes are a better review than the textbook summaries in my opinion...(more)

Lectures help in learning the material. Chapter tests are very useful in reinforcing ideas and showing gaps in learning. Kids needed to be provided some motivation to spend the time in listening to lecture. Now they are hooked to it. Yes I would continue to use it. I recommend it to others.
