3.0 Free Trial FAQ

The Teaching Textbooks 3.0 Free Trial program is here!

You can now try as many TT math programs as you like (simultaneously), from Math 3 all the way up through Pre-Calculus.

Each free trial includes the full TT program up through Lesson 15. Features include:

  • Award-winning lectures
  • Printable eBook
  • Automated grading
  • Step-by-step audiovisual solutions to each problem (through lesson 15), and
  • Animated buddies and custom wallpapers

Not only is there no limit to the number of free trials you can sign up for at once, there is also no time limit for completing each trial. And if you enjoy the trial stage and decide to buy, your children’s grades will immediately be transferred to the paid version so they won’t need to redo any of their work (though you also have the option to clear out grades if you prefer).

Here is a guide to some Frequently Asked Questions:

1. What is the Teaching Textbooks 3.0 Free Trial?
The Free Trial is the new online version of the Teaching Textbooks program (dubbed 3.0). You can sample as many courses as you like simultaneously (each up through Lesson 15), and there is no limit on how long each trial lasts.
2. How soon can I start after I sign up?
Immediately after you sign up, you’ll be sent an email from TT, telling you the steps for gaining access to the materials. This process takes mere minutes!
3. Do I need any other materials, such as a TT print textbook?
No. Each 3.0 free trial contains everything you need, including a printable Ebook, which is especially helpful for some younger-age students who prefer not to re-copy the problem they are working onto a separate scratch sheet.
4. Does the Free Trial work on tablets and smartphones?
Yes, it does. While the 3.0 program is optimized for desktop use, it can be used on smartphones and tablets via the Puffin browser. See our Use TT 3.0 on a Tablet or Phone article for more details on mobile use.
5. What if I have several students who are in the same grade level? Can I get more than one free trial of the same program?
Yes. You can sign up for as many free trials as you want, but if you want multiple copies of the same program, you’ll have to do it in separate transactions. Once you order your first trial, simply go through the process a second (or third) time if necessary.
6. What if the free trial I signed up for is too difficult or too easy for my student. Can I try another one?
Absolutely. Remember that you may try as many programs as you’d like. So if some of your initial choices seem to be a bad fit, simply revisit the Free Trial page, teachingtextbooks.com/freetrial to sign up for others.
7. What if I don’t have Flash?
Well, you can get a free copy of Flash here: get.adobe.com/flashplayer And if you are on a mobile device and using the Puffin browser, you do not need Flash.
8. Do I need to enter a Credit Card to do the trial?
No! No billing information is needed, just an email so TT can build you a free account that gets you started.
9. I’m ready to buy. How should I convert my free trial accounts to paid accounts?
To upgrade to a paid account, visit teachingtextbooks.com/ordering and select the program(s) of your choice. If you use the same email and password you used to set up your free trial, your grades and progress will all be automatically transferred!
10. I’m ready to buy, but I have a large family (4 to 8 kids). Is the process for converting my free accounts to paid accounts the same as it is for smaller families?
There is special pricing for families with 4-8 students, so if you buy 4 or more subscriptions, you should probably exercise this option, instead of simply buying individual subscriptions. Learn more about the Large-Family Discount Plan here: teachingtextbooks.com/familyplan
11. I’m ready to buy. Will our grades carry over?
Yes. All grades and work progress will be transferred to your paid account. Your students will not have to repeat any assignments. You could also clear out the grades at any time if you prefer.
12. Does the time I spent on the free trial count toward my 1-year subscription time?
No. So even though your work progress will be saved, your 1-year subscription will only begin after you activate the full paid program.
