What Did We Think of Triad, Inc.?

I loved the idea of this course! I remember using a scientific calculator in high school and college, but it has been a few years since I used one. I knew the basics on how to use one, but I certainly did not remember all the ins and outs of how to use one. I was thrilled when we were given the opportunity to review this workbook. I knew both my kids would need to know how to operate a scientific calculator and I wanted them to have confidence in their ability in using one. Michael had used one a few times before but was still unsure about all the functions. Therese had not used one before, so this was perfect for her. 

We started at the very beginning and worked on way through the lessons. I figured a little bit of review for Michael was not a bad thing. We are still working through the lessons since we had a few setbacks and breaks over the past few weeks. 

Michael felt the first few lessons were easy, but they were review for him. He did like Dr. Del. He liked how he got to the point. He was clear and concise. Michael does not like jokes, funny stories, or extra bells and whistles when he is listening to a lesson. He likes the instructor to be clear and to get his point across in a simple, quick way. This was the perfect lesson/workbook for him. 

Since this was all knew for Therese, she did not mind the repeat of information she had learned in Algebra 1. It was a great refresher according to her. She also enjoyed the clear way the Dr. Del delivered the lessons. She usually prefers to read her lessons unless she needs a little more understanding of a topic. Dr. Del was an excellent instructor and was precisely what the kids needed and wanted.
