Customer Testimonials

We initially were attracted to RightStart’s approach, but chose another option because of cost.  However, after 2-1/2 years in 2 different programs, we switched our son to RightStart level D and started our daughter in level A.  I can say that the upfront cost of the manipulative set is worth it.  My kids are developing a conceptual understanding of math, learning math facts, seeing visually how concepts work, discovering patterns in math for themselves, and having fun playing games.  It is very teacher involved until mid-late elementary, but worth the effort.  My son’s attitude toward math has improved greatly since starting RightStart, and my daughter is starting out enjoying math.  We plan to continue using RightStart through all levels.

We love RightStart Math! We transitioned from Singapore Math (which we also have loved), and it’s so great seeing that they both follow similar methodology. RS does a great job of mixing things up so that my kids stay engaged, and we really feel that they are getting a solid understanding of math.

We love RightStart Math! We cycled through 5 or 6 other math programs before finally giving it a try. I kept delaying it due to the price, but I ended up spending far more trying other programs before getting around to RightStart Math. My daughter has dysgraphia, and writing was hindering her math progress with other programs. Computer and iPad apps were missing the manipulatives that really help get the lesson across. My daughter loves all the games and hands on activities that accompany each lesson. She is quickly catching up to where she should be and I’m positive will blow past our goals! This program is worth every penny.

My eight-year-old son has significant learning disabilities. We have been trying a more traditional math curriculum for the past three years, and it was ending in tears every day with no progress being made. RightStart Math was recommended on Homeschooling with Dyslexia’s Facebook page. When I saw it available through Homeschool Buyers Co-op at a discount, I decided to check it out. We started at level A as recommended. The difference this curriculum has made has been nothing short of miraculous! It is a very visual curriculum and review of concepts is accomplished through games, not worksheets. My son has started to grasp the concepts that we have been working on for years. We are now halfway through the first book, and I still am waiting for that roadblock day to come, but it hasn’t happened yet. He no longer dreads math, and I love seeing him be successful at it. This was the best curriculum we could’ve chosen for him.

This is my first year homeschooling and I have really appreciated RightStart math. I love that it is scripted and that it includes lots of games to replace some of the “drill” work. Both of my kids (5 and 8) really seem to like working with the abacus too. I plan to continue using this program next year and have recommended it to several friends.

This is a solid curriculum that has helped close the gaps that my son has in the foundations of Math. This is well suited for children like our son who respond well to multi-sensory types of learning. While there are families who may feel that the curriculum does not do enough “Drill” type of exercises, the choice is their own to supplement that type of reinforcement with RightStart Math. I did not realize how well the right type of game could reinforce number sense and math facts. This curriculum is worth every penny and there is no turning back for us!

We have now been using RightStart Mathematics for over 1 month and we absolutely love it. I have two boys age 6 and 9. We purchased Level C since my 9 year old needed a stronger foundation and my 6 year old needed to be challenged. This program is soooo hands on and visual and since both boys are kinetic/visual learners it has been a joy to work with every day. The boys can’t wait to use the balance bar, abacus or play card games; no more forcing anyone to do math. It is an excellent program, and for boys not so many worksheets. Reinforcement is in the games. There is a bit of prep for Mom, but worth it, since it’s fun to do math again. Thank you RightStart Math.

This program is awesome – the lessons are HANDS ON, SHORT, AND LAID OUT COMPLETELY. No more fighting, no more struggling with falling asleep and losing attention, no more late nights trying to develop hands on supplements for books/computers. It has been an answer to a prayer. My sons were adopted from Kazakhstan at age three from an orphanage. What little experience they had with numbers was in Russian. Combined with ADHD, the struggle with mathematics has sent us from school to school, tutor to tutor, to home school with program to program. We have had to start from the beginning, despite their age, and I am FINALLY seeing progress in understanding basic concepts. I cannot recommend it more strongly. Wish we had gotten this when we first got the boys.

This is the first formal math curriculum we have tried and my daughter is enjoying it.
