Frequently Asked Questions About Thinkwell's Algebra 1 Readiness

### 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–go as fast or slow as you need to. You can choose where to start and end, or follow the standard table of contents.

### When does my 6-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.
