What Parents Are Saying...
"We switched my daughter from Math-u-see to Thinkwell. We will be staying with Thinkwell. I feel free! The math is no longer my responsibility. Everything they need, they have access to. Lecture videos, practice problems, and worksheets. It has great review and required cumulative studying. Using Thinkwell is like having a dishwasher... All of a sudden you have more time, and things are getting done better than when you were involved.”
– Theresa C.
"We use Thinkwell 6th and 8th grade math. In the past we have used Saxon, Teaching Textbooks and other providers. Out of everything, Thinkwell is our favorite. Our boys really respond to the instructor. They think he is funny and has showed them methods and ways of doing things the other programs left out. Their test scores have improved dramatically. We felt it was much more comprehensive than Teaching Textbooks even a year ahead and way more engaging than Saxon. We will definitely be using it again next year. As a mom with five kids I really like how it took a load off of me. All around super happy with this product!"
– Bethany B.
"We have used Thinkwell Math for YEARS for upper level math and now use it from 6th grade to Calculus BC. Prof. Burger is hilarious and able to clearly teach concepts from the very simple to the absurdly complex. He adds little songs, funny demonstrations, and all kinds of interesting examples to make math fun. My kids who have taken the AP math tests have scored 5's, and Thinkwell has been excellent at preparing them for the tests. We are die-hard Thinkwell Math fans and have been happy to tell anyone looking for a math program to look no further!”
– Diana S.
