Customer Testimonials

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.

My oldest son has struggled with and hated Math for years. At school it was hard, and afterwards, homeschooling was hard. Tried different approaches…nothing “clicked”. I knew his brain was geared to learn differently from the traditional way. He was behind at least 3 years in Math. He didn’t struggle with any of the other subjects like that. This year, for 6th grade, we made the switch to Rightstart. He and my other son had gotten to “play” with some of the manipulatives Rightstart displayed at their table at a homeschool convention, and they were actually EXCITED to try it and ASKED ME if we could switch to that curriculum. We are 7 weeks into it and both boys LOVE it so far. It’s so hands-on and challenges kids to really think for themselves. Learning through games is especially good for active boys! And they are actually learning while they play! But my melting moment was yesterday, when my 6th grader, for the first time ever said this during our lesson: “I love this!! I could do this forever!!” *tears* I could not believe I was hearing him say that. That’s a miracle. Thank you so much for providing the ONLY fun alternative out there!!! I can also tell that the people who put your program together actually enjoy Math themselves and just know how to communicate that passion.
