Comment: We used TT for several years and it is a great program. In the end, we switched to Math U See (a mastery approach to math) because the spiral approach to math was not working for us.
Comment: Teaching Textbooks has been a great help to our family this year. I love that it allows my child to work more independently.

Comment: TT was an answer to prayer for us. Anything we have used that required *me* to be the instructor of math resulted in blank stares and meltdowns. TT takes me completely out of the equation.

Comment: I found in the higher grades that I should follow along so I can assist a bit. I needed to know how they taught concepts so I could help a bit. Before Algebra they were 100% independent with TT.
Comment: Was so excited that this program would work for my children. Borrowed a disc from a friend to have a look, but it would not run on Linux.

Comment: My oldest non-mathy son used TT Algebra 1. While the program was easy to use, especially for the parent, he did not retain much at all. He didn't really use the textbook, as maybe he should have,and there were very few paper calculations. the scope seemed limited and not at all challenging or deep enough for highschool. That being said, it works for a struggling student to get through an algebra course for a grade. It would be great as a supplement or if there was an accompanying workbook with more work and more challenging problems forcing the student to work them on paper.

Comment: Great spiral program. However, while my kiddo had lots of fun with this program she retained absolutely nothing. We had to completely start over with 3rd grade. I love the ease of use and love that my kiddo had fun. However, I have found mastery works best for my kid and she retains more actually writing and reading than when she's on computer. The expense of this program was also a huge problem considering she learned nothing. Sorry to all the TT lovers.
