Do you need extra math help in your home? I think most of us can use all we can get. I was recently sent two dvds from Math Tutor. One is for pre algebra and one is for Texas Instruments TI-83/TI-84 Calculator. I really can’t use these with my children yet because they are not on this level in Math but we are really close to pre algebra, probably next school year. After watching them I think they would be great for my son to watch next year. The instructor does a great job laying out the lessons,he writes out plenty of examples and has a great teaching voice. I would have loved to have had this when I did math classes, these would help the adult that is going back to college as well.
