Thinkwell's Honors Algebra 1 has the same format as the standard Thinkwell Algebra 1 course: online videos and automatic grading teach algebra the way today's students want to learn it: videos, not a textbook.  However, Honors Algebra 1 covers a wider scope of topics preparing students for more advanced mathematics.  Here's a comparison of the two courses.

Students enjoy our online video lessons with award-winning mathematician Edward Burger; he's smart and funny, and his multimedia lessons work with any learning style. It's like having your own world-class University Professor at your side. His step-by-step lessons focus on examples, problems, and real-world applications, which makes learning algebra fun and easy.

What Parents Are Saying . . .
"We moved to Thinkwell math this year for my older children and we are delighted by the results. We have been able to re-engage them in math and really spur their problem-solving skills. The teaching videos are fun and informative, and our children have become self starters (and more importantly-finishers!) of their math lessons. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
– M. Hasapopoulos
"Our twins are considered to be "twice exceptional'. Since they are visual learners, they love the math videos with Professor Burger, for his fantastic sense of humor and detailed math explanations. Thus far we have used algebra 1 and 2, geometry and will soon begin trigonometry. I'm proud to say that our twins recently aced all math placement tests at a community college,but want to continue using Thinkwell even if they decide to take a math class at the community college! Prior to Thinkwell, we tried using another video based math program, but the presentation, although detailed, was dry and boring. I've shared our experience with others and highly recommend it to students who are motivated, love humor, and especially to those who have difficulties with textbook learning. This product, is by far, our all time favorite!”
– M. Jackson
"Thinkwell has been a real blessing with advanced math in our family. The students and I both appreciated that the lessons and tests are graded immediately. With the lessons the student gets immediate feedback and an explanation on the problems they missed so they can learn right away and not make the same mistake again. I appreciate that they can do their math on any computer anywhere so when we are visiting relatives they can still be consistent. We once had some technical issue and the tech support was very friendly, helpful and got things resolved right away. We've done at least five courses with Thinkwell.”

Frequently Asked Questions About Thinkwell's Honors Algebra 1

How do Thinkwell courses work?

Your student watches a 5-10 minute online video lesson, completes the automatically graded exercises for the topic with 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 entire course.

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.

How is Thinkwell Honors Algebra 1 different from the standard Algebra 1 course?
