Customer Testimonials

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!


“Just wanted to share our great experience with Right Start Mathematics. I was first introduced to this program through a good friend and homeschooling mentor. I had already researched into other math programs like Saxxon Math and Math-U-See. I was drawn to the math manipulatives available in Right Start Mathematics.

You know a program is good when your children ask you to sit and learn that subject! My son, age 5, and daughter, age 3 happily sit for the brief 10 min lesson in math using the Level A program. My son has maintained more interest and is comfortable adding and subtracting numbers from 0-15 within only 5 lessons! The three year old seems to be enjoying the hands on lessons and finally got through the learning phase of rote counting to accurately counting objects (under 10).

We’ve been very satisfied with our first purchase with the co-op and have since then made a purchase in science and language arts. Thank you for your great services!”


I just wanted to thank you again for the curriculum. My son has loved doing the Right Start program and it has helped him so much.


I swapped to RightStart for my children about 6 weeks ago, so haven’t yet had the full benefit of the RightStart method. What I am noticing is an enthusiasm for math which had been lacking until now. My girls were finding their old curriculum a little dry. I love that they now can’t wait for their math lessons and when choosing 2 toys/games to take away on holiday the RightStart cards were among their choices!


Thank you again for providing this excellent program!

On another note, my 13 year old who also watches along with your online level G program has said this is helping him a lot with his pre-algebra that he is working on.

My 15 year old who also watches along, who started with the RightStart Math Curriculum and worked through the program when he was very young, has just filed for his first patent and is about to patent his second device. He is able to design very complex designs in a Cad program and 3D print his prototypes. He has started reading a Calculus book for fun (even though he is only in Algebra 1). I think Dr. Cotter’s program is a great foundational program!

Thank you for teaching the math to my children and for your exceptional Geometry program and encouragement!


Feel the love from some of our conventions!

Both my son and I love RightStart Math!!! He is learning math differently than I did, but he knows how to do mental math better than I ever did and has an understanding of what is actually going on conceptually, before he learns the terms and “facts” like I did when I was in public school. I don’t feel like my words are putting to justice the experience we’re having with RightStart, but it is such a great program and has been working so well for both of us (and that’s important!). Even though this is a different way than I learned math in public school many years ago, I entrust myself fully to those who God enabled to create the curriculum, and it is so easy for me, as his teacher, to follow. Everything is laid out right there for me on the 2-page spread for each day/lesson. It has been and continues to be such a blessing, and I thank God for RightStart Math! I know our son is getting an excellent math education!

My homeschooled third-grade son has used RightStart Math (Second Edition) since kindergarten. My son is not a math whiz or an eager learner, but he loves the many games in the curriculum. This year we took a standardized test to meet state requirements. We were pleased to learn that he placed in the 90th percentile on math computation, 99th percentile for math concepts & problems.

I have homeschooled six children. Only my last has had the fun and privilege of learning through RSM. I only wish they all had had this curriculum. My last child has the very best mental math skills and conceptual understanding of mathematics of all six.

RSM is brilliantly thought through and requires almost no prep from the teacher ahead of time. A commitment to a daily joint math session with each student at a different level is necessary. The payoff is huge! We add daily math fact testing, as we don’t always do as many games we would like, but the games are excellent. We grateful to RSM for publishing such an excellent curriculum.
