Thank you Right Start! This morning my 4th grade daughter said, “I understand math now! Before, I just thought that a number was a number. I didn’t see that the number stood for something. I didn’t think of dots or an abacus or anything. I didn’t really know anything about math except that I was getting good grades.” This is the truth. She received good grades through 2nd grade, but had no idea how the numbers worked together. This caught up with her. By 3rd grade, the problems were getting too complicated for her. She was overwhelmed with no support of understanding to fall back on. Right Start Mathematics has made all the difference. We had to go back to the beginning and basically start from scratch to form a secure foundation, but now that she understands, we are flying through.
