  1. Thinkwell Math Review by Stacey Keller
    Pros: Fun, engaging instructor!
    Cons: Very few problems to work out , & no reputation, which makes it difficult to use if you are not a math whiz!

    Grades Used: 7th & Algebra 2

    None of my daughters enjoyed Thinkwell Math! They thought the instructor was fun, but felt he rushed through new concepts too quickly! We tried 7th, Algebra 1, & Algebra 2. Not working for us, so now we have wasted money, because it’s not reusable! Most people love Thinkwell, but we are not math whizzes, & need it taught slowly & need more problems to work out, so we get it! Also, not crazy about multiple choice questions on the tests either. So, my 7th grader is switching to Saxon Math w/an instructor, my middle is back in PS & loves her Algebra class, & oldest will suffer through to finish Thinkwell Algebra 2 by the end of our subscription this Summer. She will probably go back to Teaching Textbooks for her senior year! I wish it had worked out for us!

  2. Thinkwell Math Review by JulieCC
    Pros: very deep and broad; amazing instructor; great lectures
    Cons: cannot re-sell; goes quickly through topics

    Grades Used: College Algebra (now Alg. 2) and Trigonometry

    My son absolutely loves his Thinkwell courses. Dr. Edward Burger is a very humorous teacher who keeps his students’ attention well. He has great ways of remembering how to do, and not do, problems.

    Thinkwell’s content is very deep and broad. However, there may not be enough instruction for slow math learners. The lectures are under 10 minutes and all problem sets have 12 exercises. There are good practice and review exams. It’s also easy to jump around to various lessons if you need review.

    Thinkwell’s homeschool classes also come with a subscription to “Classhive”, where you can interact with other students taking the same course. You can also access ALL of Thinkwell’s videos (science & math, etc.) from Classhive. So if a student needs to go back and review something for a lower level, they can.

    Thinkwell has great tracking and grading areas. You can also print full-color notes/transcripts and practice problems. You can purchase a printed companion book, also, but it’s not in full color like the lesson links.

    Dr. Burger is a well-decorated college professor. With him as the instructor, and Thinkwell’s platform, parents can be “hands off” with math instruction.
