We have been using Teaching Textbooks for our math curriculum for over 3 years now, after trying and using other curricula for years before that. And, we have found our match! You can read my other Teaching Textbooks review posts here:

- 11 Reasons Why Teaching Textbooks 3.0 is the Best Math Curriculum for Us
Today we have a sponsored post from Teaching Textbooks. I have received Teaching Textbooks curricula for my kids to use and have been compensated for my time. All opinions are honest and my own.
Good News: Teaching Textbooks 4.0 which will work on all phones, tablets, etc. and doesn’t even need internet access is coming in 2020!
I thought it would be fun to hear about Teaching Textbooks from the kids’ point of view! So, here is a Teaching Textbooks review from the students’ perspective.
Homeschool High School Graduate Majoring in Mechanical Engineering Teaching Textbooks Review:
My second son used Teaching Textbooks through Algebra 2, and then took two further math classes at the community college for college credit this past year. Teaching Textbooks prepared him well for his college math and chemistry classes. This fall, he’s heading to Olivet Nazarene University as a mechanical engineering student. Here is what he had to say about Teaching Textbooks:
“Teaching Textbooks taught me not only math, but how to learn math. Because of this I am able to pursue an engineering degree at college.” ~ J. Mayo
Homeschool High School Sophomore’s Teaching Textbooks Review:
My oldest daughter is a sophomore this year. Here is what she has to say about Teaching Textbooks:
“I like Teaching Textbooks because it brings the strengths of learning in a classroom to homeschooling. I know, for me at least, concepts (especially math ones) are difficult to understand without a teacher who has studied the subject, so having the lecturer explain the concepts is very helpful for me.
I also appreciate that he re-explains the concept you’re learning if you get it wrong. When I would get a question wrong before Teaching Textbooks, there wasn’t a lot I could do about it. But, now I always watch the explanation and consequently remember it more later on.
Teaching Textbooks has helped me understand math better, with their learn-in-a-classroom approach.” ~ M. Mayo
Homeschool High School Freshman’s Teaching Textbooks Review:
My second daughter has an added difficulty with math because she has dyslexia. I am convinced that the online version and style of Teaching Textbooks has allowed her to be successful in staying at grade level in mathematics. Teaching Textbooks not only displays each problem in the assignment appears on-screen but it’s also read by the teacher. The reading of each problem is what makes Teaching Textbooks unique!
“I really like how when you get something wrong it shows you what you did wrong right after and how to fix it.” ~ R. Mayo
7th Grader‘s Teaching Textbooks Review:
My 7th grader doesn’t really like math, but he said,
“I like that it’s on the computer and not in a book. I like the design of it. There is also a good amount of problems, not too many or too little.” ~ T. Mayo
6th Grader‘s Teaching Textbooks Review:
My sixth-grade daughter said this:
“I like that I can do it on the computer. It’s easy to figure out the questions because of the lectures. And, if I get the question wrong, it shows me how to do it. I like that I can take as much time as I want on it.” ~ L. Mayo
4th Grader’s Teaching Textbooks Review:
My youngest son has finished Teaching Textbooks Math 3 and started Math 4. He said,
“It helps me a lot with math. Some parts of it are kind of fun, like changing backgrounds. My favorites are jumble and snowfall backgrounds and robot chameleon, fidgety squirrel, and robot remix buddies.” ~ I. Mayo
He also likes that the backgrounds and buddies change for each new level.
Update on Puffin Browser and Final Thoughts:
One thing we have loved this past year with Teaching Textbooks version 3.0 is that we could use it on our iPad or iPhone with the Puffin browser.
I LOVED being able to check the grade books from my phone wherever I was.
However, the Puffin browser is no longer available for Apple devices.
In regards to Puffin this is Teaching Textbook’s statement on the matter as of right now:
“We do not have a specific recommendation for iOS users at this time. There are both free and paid alternatives to Puffin that iOS parents may want to try out in order to see what works best for them. Fortunately, Puffin will continue to function normally on Android devices.
Also, the next version of our product–the 4.0–WILL work on iOS without the need for any 3rd party software, such as Puffin. We will have more details about that version in the fall, and rest assured that 3.0 users will be allowed to upgrade to 4.0 on request at no extra charge.”
Can I tell you how excited I am about version 4.0? I love a company that keeps updating its products as times and technology changes. Teaching Textbooks is staying strong and staying as our math curriculum!
