What Parents Are Saying . . .
"We've used Thinkwell for a number of years now, starting with Pre-Algebra and going up to Algebra 2. We all love watching Professor Burger's video lectures. They are long enough to explain things well, and he is not only a great teacher but also very entertaining, which is a huge benefit when trying to learn topics such as linear functions! The content is very rich. I like how there is a pencil and paper component to each lesson. All in all, a terrific program that we've been very happy to use!”
– Becky
"After reluctantly persevering with a couple of other math programs, we finally found Thinkwell. The humorous lectures are concise, easy to understand and delivered in manageable sizes. We don't have to endure the tedious repetition found in so many other programs. Having lessons online is a win for our family - this medium is so acceptable for the current generation. Doing the exercises online saves us a lot of time because the marking and correction is done immediately. Now that we've found Thinkwell we're staying with it.”
– Judy N.
"We have used Thinkwell for two school years now, 7th and 8th Math, as well as Geometry and Algebra 2. It is the favorite math program with both my son and daughter. They enjoy the teacher and his presentations, and feel they are very clear and complete. The few times we have been stumped and unable to understand, we have sent questions in and received prompt, clear answers. For us, Thinkwell has been a blessing, and we intend to continue to use it for the rest of our math needs. We have also shared this news with our friends, and several have also been won over to the Thinkwell side!”

Frequently Asked Questions About Thinkwell's Honors Algebra 2

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.

Does my student get school credit for Thinkwell’s Honors Algebra 2?

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

Does Thinkwell Honors Algebra 2 meet state standards?

Some states set 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. View the content, standards, and objectives for Honors Algebra 2 HERE. 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 extend your subscription for $19.95/month.

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 Algebra 2 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: 40%, Chapter tests: 40%, Midterm & Final Exams: 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?

Yes, there's a final grade report print option in the My Grades section. Contact techsupport@thinkwell.com with any questions.

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 Algebra 2 spiral or mastery-based?

Thinkwell math courses are mastery-based, ensuring students thoroughly grasp each concept before progressing to the next. While mastery is the primary goal, our courses integrate regular review opportunities strategically throughout the course material. These reviews reinforce previously learned material, solidifying understanding and identifying areas for improvement. By combining mastery-focused instruction with ongoing review, Thinkwell Math equips students with a strong foundation in mathematics, setting them up for long-term success in the subject.

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.

How does my school review this course?

Should your school need to review a Thinkwell course for any reason, have the school contact techsupport@thinkwell.com and we can provide them access to a demo site.

Do I get credits for a Thinkwell course?

Generally, only schools can award credits, and Thinkwell is not a school. We can provide you with a certificate of completion and a grade report. However, if you’re pursuing credit with a particular school or institution, it might be helpful to know that Thinkwell math courses are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) as a Supplementary Education Program. For California students, Thinkwell is also an approved A-G online publisher. Learn more about our accreditation HERE.

Is Thinkwell math conceptual or procedural?

Thinkwell’s approach to teaching and learning mathematics blends conceptual understanding with procedural fluency. Overall, we aim to strike a balance between concepts and procedures in our content which allows students to develop the skills and knowledge needed for success in mathematics. We recognize the importance of building a strong conceptual foundation when learning math. Prof. Burger emphasizes the "why" behind mathematical principles in the video lectures so that our students can develop a comprehensive understanding of the ideas underpinning the subject. We also believe in the benefits of procedural fluency, recognizing that mathematical proficiency requires not only understanding but also the ability to apply procedures accurately and efficiently. Through systematic practice, students master various mathematical techniques, ensuring they can solve problems confidently and accurately.
