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.

Frequently Asked Questions about Thinkwell's 6th Grade Math

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, receiving instant correct-answer feedback, then moves 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 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.

Is Thinkwell's 6th Grade Math appropriate for my accelerated student?

For advanced students, you may be interested in 6th Grade Math Honors.

Does my student get school credit for Thinkwell's 6th Grade Math Summer Course?

School credit will need to be approved by your school. Our Summer courses do not have WASC or AG accreditations. For California students that need the WASC or AG accreditation, you will need to take our 36-week course. For Homeschool records and transcript, this is a complete course and worth one math credit.

Does Thinkwell's 6th Grade Math 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. 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 3 months?

You can purchase extra time 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 6th Grade Math?

The pace of your course is up to you. We've broken down the full course into 8-week segments. Do as little or as much as you like in a week. If you're pressed for time, we recommend taking the Chapter Pre-Test first to identify the topics you can skip, and those your student might need to study. See the Pre-Test Guide for the list of topics that correspond to the questions on the Pre-Test.

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 based on the scores for the Chapter Tests, Midterm and Final Exams.

What is acceptable performance on the exams?

As a homeschool 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 6th Grade Math 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 6-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 the full versions of the 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. See the Accreditation Page in the bottom menu for more information.
