They could be weekly lessons. An actual high school class will usually be 36 weeks. But they will not have a full hour of teaching every day. There will be attendance and collection of assignments and pep rally and such.

I haven't used the Teaching Company (although we watched some of the algebra), but I believe there is a textbook along with the lessons. The student will be doing problems and perhaps reading text for the rest of the time. He may watch the DVD in segments or more than one time.

I wouldn't think he'd need a supplement unless you saw a specific area that he was weak in -- math facts, fractions, etc.

Sometimes your first program isn't what you want. There are quite a few DVD math teachers these days, including:

- Teaching Textbooks
- Chalkdust
- Saxon with DIVE CD-ROMs
- Videotext
- BJU has a video version, I think
- Math Relief (my favorite)

With your help, he will get a great education.
