With a primary focus on the “why” behind concepts, VideoText takes students on a complete journey through Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, and Algebra II using mastery-review techniques to fully explore the language of mathematics and algebraic relations for 176 lessons! Each 5-10 minute video lesson is designed to capture and hold students’ attention through the use of computer-generated graphics, animation, and color-sequencing, while engaging them in the complete development and understanding of concepts. After watching the teaching video lesson, students will then complete corresponding print materials designed to solidify mastery for Algebra lessons, including:

Course Notes designed as a reference for video objectives

Student Worktexts to build conceptual understanding through definitions, examples, and exercises

Progress Tests to gauge student mastery with two forms of quizzes and tests for cumulative review

Step-by-step Solutions Manuals and Instructors Guides for comprehensive answer checks of every daily exercise, quiz & test question

The VideoText program addresses two of the most important aspects of mathematics instruction. First, the inquiry-based video format contributes to engaging students more personally in the concept-development process. Through the use of the pause button, an instructor should require interaction and dialogue on the part of the student. Secondly, the “why” of each incremental concept is explored in detail, using no tricks or shortcuts, ensuring students understand completely.

Because of the unique delivery of the VideoText lessons, students can often study independently, allowing them to cover and comprehend more material in less time. For parents and students who are less comfortable with the prospect of teaching or learning high-school mathematics, VideoText also provides access to their toll-free helpline, ensuring that you are not alone when you need help!

5out of 5Colleen Hoey(verified owner)–It’s sad to see this is the first review. This is an outstanding math curriculum! I definitely recommend it. We have done this as a two-year course, and have about 5 weeks left in the second year. The videos are a little dated, but one instructor in particular seems like an old friend. We just have fun with it while watching, and I tell my daughter about the styles of yesteryear. Each unit rotates the presenting instructor (between 3 (or 4?) instructors). The approach to algebra is excellent; it is systematic and clear. The method for solving word problems is excellent; when I took algebra we were never taught a standardized approach. Only a couple times did we do things much differently than in the video. It is really a must to stop the video so your student understands each step of a lesson. Unless your student is really mathematically inclined or self-motivated, I think it will be important for the parent to watch the video with the student, stop the video, give the student time to answer the question posed or solve the problem on the “board (screen).” This is really an important part of the lesson. Also, important for the student to read and understand the student worktext. It provides more/alternate examples than in the video. Again, this is especially important for the student that may not think of his/herself as mathematically inclined. There are cumulative reviews in all/most of the end of unit tests and quizzes every few lessons (always with 2 versions so if it was a difficult topic, it can be reinforced with a second quiz). As I believe was suggested, for any given assignment, either odds or evens were completed. More only as needed for a particular topic. Students check their own work for daily assignments in a solutions manual — this has worked well even with a student who would say this is not their favorite subject — it has worked as a learning tool, and almost always quizzes were successful. We are looking forward to the Geometry program next year and have already been wondering if it will be the same or different instructors.
