It is wonderful to have the checklist of each lesson for my daughter to see her progress, and for me to have an easy evaluation for our homeschool program. It is so nice not to be the one grading her.
When I use Thinkwell, the retention rate of what I've learned is significantly increased. I would say that Thinkwell not only makes the material easier to digest but creates a fun way to actually learn math.
Thinkwell turns learning into enjoyment, only you learn so much more!
Thinkwell contains all the necessary components for you to gain a thorough understanding of the course. The lectures are there, the notes are there, and the quizzes are there. It's a complete package.
Throughout the Thinkwell lectures, I never got lost. I never got confused. I was able to understand... The lecture section is outstanding.
Thinkwell is a program that allows students like me to learn these subjects while still keeping us entertained. Good job, Thinkwell.

Professor Burger is passionate about Math and he is able to transmit his passion and clear thinking through his lectures. I could understand not only the concepts and HOW to solve the problems, but WHY we solve them in a certain way... You meet just a few of those instructors in a lifetime.
I have recommended them to many friends, all of whom have used them with great success. Dr. Burger's sense of humor really adds to the class and makes it particularly engaging for my son.
Our family has enjoyed the format and scope of the Thinkwell course we've used in our homeschool program. It is well organized, easy to use and has been an asset to our homeschool curriculum.
Thinkwell is a great resource, with videos, notes, sample problems, and animations to help students understand the material and solve problems.
Thinkwell is better than a textbook because it is more interactive! Instead of just droning over a book, a virtual person actually comes and teaches it to you.
Thinkwell is a WONDERFUL tool for learning... The transcripts and supplemental materials are very helpful in explaining the material and they make studying for the exams an absolute breeze.
