Online Math with Thinkwell Homeschool ~ a TOS review

I have a great review to share with you today if you are looking for a comprehensive math program. When my students hit middle school age and arise from their puberty fog my goal is for them to become more independent in their studies. Using Thinkwell’s 6th to 8th Grade Math course with Montana and the High School Math course with Mikayla has been the perfect way to supplement math learning in our home.

Thinkwell Homeschool offers Video based math courses for students in 6th - High School, including honors courses, advanced math, and college level math in an online format. Having an online format enables your student to have access to the material 24/7. This feature is especially convenient for our family especially as we head into our busy travel season.

We received access to two math courses for this review, 7th Grade Math and Pre-Calculus. I used Montana (7th grade, 13 years old) and Mikayla (11th grade, 16 years old) respectively for the programs. Once we received access setting up the courses and assigning access for them was really easy. We have been using the program as a supplement 2-3 days a week (typically on Monday and Friday, to our main math program and it has been working out great for the girls.

Each course is scheduled out with suggested lesson plans for the entire school year which I love. With day-to-day and week-by-week plans you can keep your child focused to finish the complete level in a timely manner. If for some reason you need to go a bit slower, that’s perfectly okay as well! The Thinkwell program allows for flexibility in the courses and I don’t have to stress out about how fast or slow the girls are progressing.

Chapters within each course contain videos, worksheets, and extra enrichment activities that your child can complete. Worksheets and notes can be printed out and stored in a math binder for easy reference. You also have the option to purchase all the notes and worksheets from the company if you don’t want to print. I found it easy enough to just print the worksheets we needed day by day.

The 320 engaging videos are presented by Ph.D Professor Evan Burger and are clear and concise. There is no fluff and I like that about the program, especially in the higher level course like Pre-Calculus. I also love that the program is ready right after setting up your account. This makes it easy to know that even if we can’t hit the hardcover math books, Thinkwell is there for us and we can still get lessons in on the go.

Overall, Montana and Mikayla are excited about using this math curriculum. I certainly love it as well because the girls don’t complain when it’s a Thinkwell math day. We definitely will be continuing to use our Thinkwell 7th grade math and Pre-Calculus courses for this school year 2 days a week.
