Triad Math - Crew Review


Disclaimer: I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.

Triad Math, Inc. makes using the scientific calculator easy with Mastering the TI-30Xa Scientific Calculator: Augmented Intelligence for all 21st Century Students. This worktext was not intended to be a stand-alone learning tool. Students need to login to Moodle (the online learning management system) to get the video lessons that accompany the worktext. Each online lesson includes pre-test, notes from the worktext, video lesson, exercises from the worktext, exercises-answers, post-test, and forum.

My daughter was already familiar with using the scientific calculator so I especially liked how she was able to pick and choose lessons as a refresher to her. However, if you have a student progressing from one lesson to the next, I like how the online program reflects what has been completed.

Throughout the course, students learn how to use the scientific calculator to complete Algebra lessons in real numbers, negative numbers, multiplication, division, percentage, memory, exponent, square root, fractions, reciprocal, and fraction to decimal conversion. My daughter is about to finish Algebra 1 so you see why this course was very basic for her. The course is easy to follow, and would have been very beneficial to her prior to taking Pre-Algebra. For students taking advanced mathematics, this course also provides five lessons for Trigonometry students and five lessons for STEM students. A great teaching tool that we may be coming back to later in high school.

No matter what math curriculum your high school student is using, this worktext along with its video lessons is a great resource for any homeschool. Visit the Crew Blog to read more reviews from the Homeschool Review Crew.
