    Each unit is designed to be used with some student/instructor interaction, but can easily be used as an independent study for the student. The units can be slowed down or sped up as needed for the individual student.

    These units work great in a one-on-one setting for home school or for a teacher to use as a resource in the classroom for a small group or entire class. The units are designed so that you can start teaching immediately with little to no preparation on your part. Great time saver!
