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.

So far, my child and I really like it! We love all the games and hands on learning. Two thumbs up!

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.

We love Right Start Math, great hands on learning that really works for my slow learner and my advanced learner. They love the games and are learning without realizing it. The teacher manual explains everything perfectly! All the manipulatives are wonderful and truly helpful!

Ben is having such bittersweet feelings about finishing this class. He’s been doing RightStart since he was in first grade, back in 2010 when we started homeschooling, so this really marks the end of an era for him (and for me, too!) This class has been such a wonderful experience for him. He has grown so much in terms of both his mathematical reasoning and his independence as a student. Holding himself accountable to his teachers has been very powerful, and he’s really finding and appreciating the joy in learning Math. So thank you, thank you, thank you for putting together the online class and for allowing Ben to be a part of the pilot program. We look forward to his sister starting the class in a couple of years!

My son had been in the habit of refusing to do anything that even remotely resembled math. I spent a very long time searching for the right program to peak his interest. Right Start Math has been the key that opened the math door for him. He went from running from math to asking to do math a couple times a day! Both my children love it. They both enjoy playing the math games and will ask to play them over and over. We curl up together and go through the lessons and play the game. I love seeing them easily learn the math facts that often had been a struggle in the past. No more flash cards needed! No effort to try to memorize. They simply play games in the lesson and the math facts just sort of “click”. That made my son so happy. He now feels like he has a chance at being successful in math. It was worth every penny we invested in the program! I plan to continue using it for as long as we can. I’m so glad to have found a program that is in line with our philosophy that learning should be fun.

I am so glad my friend recommended this program to me. We’ve been homeschooling for five years now and although math hasn’t necessarily been a difficulty for my children it was never enjoyable. One of my goals in home educating is to instill a love for learning in my children and RightStart has done just that. Math is now one of the favourite subjects in our home. The games are a game changer; no pun intended. They really take the concepts learned and apply them in a concrete, enjoyable way that sticks! RightStart is a great mix promoting both Charlotte Mason’s thoughts alongside memorization for Classical learning.
Is there a big commitment involved: absolutely, but it is so worth seeing math turn from a bore to a delight.

I wanted to tell you what a blessing the math is. My son is actually looking forward to math and it is so enjoyable playing the games instead of endless drilling. Today, he said, “Let’s do the fancy math!!” Not sure why he thinks it’s fancy but the enthusiasm is not something that I’ve seen for math EVER. As a child on the autism spectrum, to see emotions is enough to make my mommy day!!!

This will be my 3rd year teach RSM. It has been a God send! My daughter struggled a lot with other curriculums. She struggles with her focus and she had an awful time trying to memorize math facts. I really wish I could have started her with RSM when she was Kindergarten age. With this curriculum she has just soared. She adds two digit numbers in her head for FUN! She absolutely loves math!
