Review-Triad Math, Inc.

Disclosure: I received this product free through the Homeschool Review Crew.

We recently received the Mastering the TI-30Xa Scientific Calculator: Augmented Intelligence for all 21st Century Students worktext from Triad Math, Inc.

Amazon.com: Mastering the TI-30Xa Scientific Calculator: Augmented  Intelligence for all 21st Century Students (9798651171323): Hane Ph.D.,  Craig: Books

The workbook contains twenty-five lessons covering the use of the TI-30Xa scientific calculator within Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Trigonometry, and STEM.

Each lesson offers practical step-by-step instructions for using the calculator.

There are also twenty-five online video lessons, exercises and quizzes-even a forum for students to ask questions.

For us, my 8th grade daughter has been finishing up Pre-Algebra, so this was the perfect time for her to use the program to increase her math skills.

She was so interested in figuring out the different buttons and what they do, she literally grabbed the book from my hands, sat right down, and started working on it.

Before long, she was showing us how to multiply and divide fractions on her calculator. Neither my husband nor I even knew you could do that on the calculator!

She actually finished the first 13 lessons in about a week and a half. She got stumped only a few times, and turned to the videos for help. She liked the videos because they were short and really easy to understand.

She also completed most of the two Algebra lessons. There were a few problems she wasn’t quite ready for in those lessons, and she is definitely not ready for Trigonometry, but she can always tackle more of the lessons at a later date.

She says she found the program helpful, and enjoyed learning how to use the buttons. She really liked that she learned how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions along with converting them to decimals, mixed fractions, and proper fractions.

I like that she learned some new math skills-something that will only benefit her ability to do math going forward. The workbook will serve as great reference tool in the future too, which is nice.

The program was easy to use, my daughter learned quite a bit and enjoyed it too-so that is definitely a win in my book!
