    Stephanie, I love the process ShillerMath uses and how thorough the lessons are but probably won’t continue with it because I really enjoy the benefit of a program like Teaching Textbooks that includes automated grading. For a family that is doing their math together or where mom wants/needs to be more present I think ShillerMath is the way to go!
