With the COVID19 pandemic and more stay-at-home time

it’s an IDEAL TIME for children to Catch-Up on math.

How exciting for your children to return to school in the fall with confidence from memorizing all multiplication facts and using them in equations in the millions.  By repeating fact skills used in the hundreds, equations in the millions are Enormous Confidence Builders.

Next the algorithm of division (even as soon as 2 Times Tables are learned) is visually shown as the reverse of multiplication facts and the process of division in the millions is successfully completed. By repeating the division steps in equations in the millions and Understanding is Enhanced.

Realizing that new methods in multiplication and division are being introduced, we discovered students easily transfer these learned skills to other fact adaptations.

Parents, Teachers: Would you be a co-creator with me for Cool Tool Math/ Multiply & Divide Course?

You may wish to contact parents of children lagging behind or desiring to improve multiplication facts.

Students will have FUN while:

  • watching lesson videos
  • doing simple activity pages
  • take simple quizzes that support their success

 When these students return to school in the fall, with their new-found confidence in math YOU will notice improved relationships with peers and adults and an increased ability to attack new subject material.

Can you imagine how it can change your home, our communities and our future if children have confidence that they are smart and have value.

We know knowledge is power, but only when accompanied with high moral values. We want a select team of co-creators.

Would you like to be considered as a co-creator of this Cool Tool Math/Multiply & Divide Course with me?

Turning Adversity Into Lasting Success

According to Terry Giles, “When someone goes through extreme hardship 85 percent of the time they are negatively impacted — sometimes destroying their life, but 15 percent come out the other side stronger and better off than if they hadn’t gone through the hardship at all.” This is a quote in an article by Catherine Yang published in the Epoch Times May 7 – 13, 2020.

Catherine goes on to say, “Giles is an optimist.” and quotes him as saying, “Left to nature, 85 percent of us suffer in adversity. But if we teach these lessons about resiliency and living outside our comfort zone, especially to young people, one day that 15 percent will be 25 percent, or 35, or 50, or more.”

Unfortunately, Giles said, “As a young person, you hear the word no a lot. No, you can’t do that, No, that won’t happen for you. No, that’s impossible. We hear ‘no’ a lot more than we hear ‘yes,’ and I think that’s why there’s only 15 percent that ignore that and somehow come out of the other side better,” he said. “But if we could teach these things, there’s no reason that we couldn’t have more of the population achieving greatness even though they go through hardship.”

“And wouldn’t it be a better world, if that were the case?”

Success Tempered With Integrity, Not Arrogance

Catherine summarized, “There’s an instance where going out of his way to return $4,000 cash turned into a gift twice over, and businesses booming or failing because of decisions of integrity. As a criminal lawyer, Giles defended a man involved in creating snuff films and realized he was using his talent to help bad people. He left criminal law to go into a completely new business, and seemed to find overnight success.”

“I think inherently, deep down, we know if what we’re doing is the right thing or the wrong thing,” Giles said. “It’s probably just as easy as saying, ‘Would I want somebody else to know I’m doing this thing?’ and if the answer is no, maybe you’re doing the wrong thing,” he said. “Then it’s just a matter of being disciplined and being willing to do the good, even though it may seem to be leading to a negative result.”

“If you’re doing good, what might seem like a negative is going to reverse,” Giles said.

Positive Thinking

“I went through a [spiritual] renaissance, I would say, in my 20s,” Giles said. “When I was a kid and a teenager, life was pretty miserable for me. But when I went off to college, from that point on, life got pretty good. I mean, a lot of what I consider to be miracles happened in my life.”

Catherine commented, “Positivity can be taken lightly, but it can also lead somewhere very deep, and spiritual.”

Catherine quoting Giles, “I hate the corona virus and I think it’s a tragedy on a number of levels,” he said, “But it is forcing the world into taking a time out, and maybe we need to spend some time with ourselves. With a negative attitude, the isolation might feel hellish. But with a positive attitude, you can come out stronger.

“If in taking this time out. If we can not feel sorry for ourselves, but use the time to reflect, to maybe realign our goals, to take into account those things that are really meaningful to us both as a country as a state as individuals, this can end up being a very good positive even though it looks like a very dark cloud right now,” he said.

Frustrated with math? We can help with that!

While you are staying home with your children and trying to help them with their math homework, did you discover that maybe one or two of your children do not enjoy know their math facts which makes math very hard.

Some creative children find different ways of doing things. They want to know the how and why things work. When we tell them how to do math they claim they don’t “get it!” Actually, they want to know more. They like to see visual patterns. Instead of reading instructions, they just try to figure it out. You may also know adults that do that.

Tell me about your child. Together we can find a solution. It may be helpful to know their age, but names won’t be necessary.

While your children are at home

How about a fun math program while actually learning.

Do you know a child who finds all kinds of ways to avoid learning math?

Having raised 7 children, half of them did well in math and the others did not. When our one son became so distraught with math, determined to give up and not try anymore, we as parents tried everything to solve the problem. We tried a Private School, private tutoring, still the problem persisted. It was when we met a psychiatrist who tested our son for brain dominance and said his tests showed he tested off the chart to be Right Brained Dominant. Then he explained the differences of learning styles and how each dominant side has traits innate to them that are assets. Since that time I wanting to know, how does that affect learning math? If children learn math differently, can we teach math differently?

After years of trial and error, designing, publishing, recording video instructions, creating quizzes to prove that they understand each concept, testing the courses on over 2900 students in one city, We can safely say it not only entertains students, but they quickly learn math. In 10 minutes they learn to add and subtract one number or they learn one set of times tables and how to use it even in long division.

Are there other children that need math help? Not the entertainment or endless drills that are common, but actually inviting courses that make learning math FUN.
