View Full Version : Secular Math with DVD?

05-05-2010, 08:31 PM
Other then Teaching Textbooks, Saxon,T4L, MUS and Chalkdust, what other math programs for grade 5 and up come with DVD help?

We would like something that has an actual "teacher" that you can see on the DVD.(Like BJU has for their math). Is there anything out there like this?

We tried TT, and my daughter HATED it. She did not like that "boring" voice she said. :p I do not like MUS, I believe Saxon has a lot of problems to do in one lesson, we do not want a computer on-line class(for fear of computer crashing), and I am not sure about Chalkdust?


Thank you!

Try this one


I know the woman who teaches it, but I don't think she goes lower that pre-algebra. And it is not video but a web class.

Have you looked into Thinkwell? They start at Grade 6 for math. We've used the online version, but you can also get cd-roms, if that works for you. The teacher, Edward Burger, is absolutely wonderful and engaging (and about as far from boring as one could get).
