Gold stars don't equate to math literacy, foundational concepts and understanding does. At Made for Math, we teach those foundational concepts to students who might be struggling to understand them in the way they're traditionally taught.

Your child doesn't need more of the same, they need something completely different. Multisensory math is the ticket. If you'd like to learn more about the method, visit madeformath.com

Happy punny Friday! Here at Made for Math, we like to help out-of-the-box thinkers.

Math homework shouldn't take hours. If it is, there's WAY MORE going on. The gap is too wide for your child to bridge with just homework repetition.

Multisensory math helps students gain access to foundational concepts and start applying them to their current classes too.

Let’s flip the script! All people are math people. Including YOU! Many students struggle to learn math because the traditional method doesn't work for all kids! Some students need to be taught through their strengths in an environment with multisensory experiences. When the student engages in multisensory math, they discover for themselves they are made for math, an actual math person! This realization causes them to get curious about what else they can learn.

James Clear shows us the math of tiny gains. Over time, those tiny gains add up to a big win. At Made for Math, we couldn’t agree more. We work at getting our students incrementally better each time they see us until we see those small tiny gains pay big dividends.

What small win do you want to celebrate today? Leave it in the comments below.

This 3 1/2 minute video, full of exceptional visual representations, will have you seeing 20/20 with fractions on the number line. Notice how we differentiate the ways we represent fractions and how we begin with friendly numbers! Visuals + Precise Language + gentle pacing is the perfect start to fractions on the number line.

Replace that worry with positive thoughts and open space for the asynchronous development that students with learning differences have. Instead of projecting future worries on your child, make yourself available in the here and now to teach, connect, and guide during this new experience. We recommend ice cream connection time. 🍦

Pretty much spot on! Working remotely can be super awesome.

I started a new (remote) ad copywriting job 3 weeks ago. I’ve only cried once so far, but it was a REALLY ugly cry session 😅 (PS: I’ll be signing books in SLC on Saturday! 2-4:00, Sugarhouse Barnes & Noble.)

My favorite math super power is subitizing. This skill allows me to rapidly group and see quantity without counting. I’m working on inventory of my presentation materials.

Side note: So excited to go present in person again! Swipe to see my subitizing in action.

I created groups of 25 by making an array of 4x3x2 with one laid across the top as a tally to make 25. This configuration allowed me to count without thinking.

My mind wandered as I thought about this upcoming presentation and within minutes, I knew how many are in stock. Comment below and tell me how many I have!

The next big decision…what luggage to buy to haul these! If you have a favorite brand, I want to hear it!
