Systematic Mathematics

Module Covers

Systematic Mathematics offers an end to your math struggles and frustration, and the chance for your students to succeed in math with our non-consumable DVD math curriculum. The prevailing methods used in nearly all math programs, including material and methods used by home educators, promote a lot of activity with very little actual learning. Students feel dumb and give up, and parents are at a loss of what to do. The solution is so simple – go back to using math that works. Systematic Mathematics does just that. It is taught the way it used to be before the great dumbing down of the 1960s. It is also NOT aligned with Common Core. Instead of jumping around, we build concept upon concept, so that a student understands math and isn’t just memorizing it. We offer a full math curriculum or a “crash course” to provide the essential foundation your student may be missing. If you are tired of math struggles and frustration, give Systematic Mathematics a try and find math success.

The year 2015 marks 25 years of teaching math in a way that equips and encourages both teacher and student. Math-U-See is a complete K – 12 math curriculum focused on homeschool and small group learning environments. We “Build Understanding” in students by using manipulatives in a multi-sensory, mastery-based approach suitable for all levels and learning styles. Each level focuses on a specific set of concepts while continuously reviewing and integrating previous concepts; other math topics are introduced where appropriate.

We teach by concept:

  • Emphasis on the “why” of problem solving, not just the “how”

  • Focus on teaching students how/when to apply concepts

  • A systematic and cumulative approach that is definitive and logical

We are a mastery program:

  • Step-by-step procedures for introducing, practicing, mastering, and reviewing concepts

  • Designed to teach students specific skills in sequence as the student progresses

We are skill-based and multi-sensory:

  • Use of block manipulatives to teach concepts for every level

  • Teaching that incorporates multiple senses to accommodate each learner
