Honors Geometry Online Course


Thinkwell's Honors Geometry with Professor Edward Burger

Thinkwell's Honors Geometry course has the same format as the standard Thinkwell Geometry course: online videos and automatic grading teach geometry the way today's students want to learn it, no textbook required!  However, some topics are covered in more depth and exercise sets are built to a more rigorous standard.  Here's a comparison of the two courses.

This complete online Honors Geometry course is fun and easy to use, because of the engaging and effective videos. After watching a geometry video lesson, you can review and practice with automatically graded exercises that give you instant feedback, as well as printable geometry worksheets with answer keys.

What Parents Are Saying . . .
"I love Thinkwell math! My son and I think Professor Burger is awesome. We tried a few different math programs but nothing compares to Thinkwell. The concepts are presented in a way that makes them so much easier to understand. I go through the lectures and problems with my son most of the time and I am finally learning Geometry (my nemesis in high school and college). Professor Burger uses humor which makes it even better. We will definitely continue to use Thinkwell. I am so grateful to have found it!"
– Tina C
"We are using Thinkwell's Geometry, and we love it. The lectures are fun and well organized. The notes for each lesson are easy to follow and provide all the info needed to complete the problems. My son is excelling with this program, and I find it very easy to jump in and help him when needed!”
– Virginia
"We didn't start homeschooling until last year, my daughter's freshman year. I used a different math program that had come highly recommended and it was like pulling teeth to get my daughter to do her work. She said it was too confusing. This year we started with Thinkwell's Geometry and my daughter loves it. She can't believe how much better it is to understand. Now her math is done every day without being promoted. No more tears, no more fighting. Thank you, Thinkwell!”

Frequently Asked Questions About Thinkwell's Honors Geometry

How do Thinkwell courses work?

Your student watches a 5-10 minute online video lesson and then completes the automatically graded exercises for the topic. You'll get instant correct-answer feedback. Then move on to the next lesson! The courses are self-paced, or you can use the daily lesson plans. Just like a textbook, you can choose where to start and end, or follow the standard table of contents.

When does my 12-month online subscription start?

It starts when you're ready. You can have instant access to your online subscription when you purchase online, or you can purchase now and start later.

What math courses should a student take?

A typical sequence of secondary math courses completed by a college-bound student is: Grade 6 Math > Grade 7 Math > Grade 8 Math > Algebra 1 > Geometry > Algebra 2 > Precalculus. For students looking to include Calculus as part of their high school curriculum and are able to complete Grade 7 Math in 6th grade, the sequence can be: Grade 7 Math > Prealgebra > Algebra 1 > Geometry > Algebra 2 > Precalculus > Calculus.

How is Thinkwell’s Honors Geometry different from the non-honors course?

There are additional advanced topics in Honors Geometry.

Does my student get school credit for Thinkwell’s Honors Geometry?

No, only schools are accredited and Thinkwell is not a school, though many accredited schools use Thinkwell.

Does Thinkwell’s Honors Geometry meet state standards?

Some state sets standards for what topics should be taught in a particular course. Thinkwell does not have a course version for each state. Instead, the course is built to national standards to be inclusive of all states. Websites such as www.achieve.org can help you determine your state's standards.

What if my student needs access to the course for more than 12 months?

You can purchase extra time in one-month, three-month, and six-month increments.

Can I share access with more than one student?

The courses are designed and licensed to accommodate one student per username and password; additional students need to purchase online access. This allows parents to keep track of each student's progress and grades.

How long does it take to complete Thinkwell’s Honors Geometry course?

The pace of your course is up to you, but most students will schedule one school year.

Can I see my grade?

Thinkwell’s course software tracks everything your student does. When logged in, your student can click "My Grades" to see their progress.

How are grades calculated?

The course grade is calculated this way: Quizzes: 30%, Chapter tests: 30%, Midterm: 20%, and Final: 20%.

What is acceptable performance on the exams?

As a home-school parent, you decide the level of performance you want your student to achieve; the course does not limit access to topics based on performance on prior topics.

Can I get a transcript?

You can contact techsupport@thinkwell.com to request a file with your student's grades.

What if I change my mind and want to do a different math course, can I change?

If you discover that you should be in a different course, contact techsupport@thinkwell.com within one week of purchase and we will move you to the appropriate course.

Can I print the exercises?

Yes, but completing the exercises online provides immediate correct answer feedback and automatic scoring, so we recommend answering the exercises online.

Are exercises multiple choice?

Most of the exercises are multiple choice and they are graded automatically with correct answer solutions.

Is Thinkwell's Honors Geometry built on "continuous review?"

Thinkwell's Honors Geometry is carefully constructed to build on previous knowledge, reinforcing key concepts every step of the way. It is not only a reflection of empirically effective instruction, but also reflects Dr Burger’s philosophies learned over a career of teaching mathematics, emphasizing a solid foundation that addresses why students need to learn certain concepts. Finally, Thinkwell Geometry is intentionally designed to work for a wide variety of learning styles.

What is Thinkwell's Refund Policy?

We offer a full refund of 12-month subscription purchases within 14 days of purchase, no questions asked. For Essential Review courses, the refund period is 3 days. Optional printed materials are printed on demand and the sales are final.
