This summer I attended a dozen homeschool conferences and heard many wonderful testimonials of how Math-U-See had helped families and students. At one conference I was struck by the variety of students who were succeeding using our math program.
I met several students who had used only Math-U-See in high school and were now excelling at the college level and beyond. One of them I will be writing about later in this article.
I also met many parents who shared how their students were experiencing success for the first time. Each of their children had some from of dyscalculia, dyslexia, or dysgraphia. I confessed I did not know why Math-U-See had helped their students. I thought it might have something to do with our multi-sensory approach, but regardless of how it worked I enjoyed rejoicing with them over their happy home!
I first met William Noland when he was a boy who liked math and wanted to meet the math man in the video. This summer I met a confident young man who was pursuing advanced studies in math. Here are a few pictures and his testimony in his own words.
After using Math-U-See for high school, I’ve gone on to major in mathematics in college, and have found that your curriculum prepared me very well for higher mathematics. Having just finished my sophomore year, I’ve already completed my college’s most advanced math courses, and my professors have commented several times on the fact that I focus on the “why” of mathematics rather than simply memorizing formulas, something I think Math-U-See emphasizes very well.
Altogether I think your curriculum prepared me perfectly for the math I’m facing in college, and even the math I hope to face pursuing a doctorate in mathematics. I simply wanted to thank you for teaching kids like me to understand math rather than simply memorizing it. Thank you!
Thank you for coming to the booth and sharing your stories. I knew Math-U-See made sense to me when I wrote it, but it was a delightful confirmation to hear that this program that I authored with God’s help has helped struggling learners and scholars alike.
May you each be blessed.
