First vs. Second Edition


Second-Edition-BooksThe new RightStart™ Mathematics Second Edition has the same award-winning and innovative approach to teaching mathematics as the first edition.

After the first edition of RightStart™ Mathematics was written, Dr. Cotter continued her research on teaching math to children. She began to collect ideas and, in the mid 2000s, she began to write the second edition of RightStart™ Mathematics implementing these new approaches and techniques.

The new lessons and worksheets include an easier-to-teach format, incorporates updated research, includes more games, and continues to advance and develop the child’s conceptual understanding of critical math concepts with the philosophy and approach for which we are recognized.

Listen to a recorded webinar on the differences between RightStart™ Mathematics First Edition and RightStart™ Mathematics Second Edition.
