About Making Math Real
About
ImageMaking Math Real is an innovative, fun, hands-on method of learning math that integrates key cognitive development such as symbol imaging, detail analysis, and sequential processing, within every lesson and activity. Students who struggle with math do not lack the intelligence or the motivation to be successful. Typically, they lack the underlying development that supports the acquisition of the basic tools to do math.

Making Math Real builds development by offering professional development to educators and parents so that they can help students create their own mental pictures, thereby reducing reliance on memory. Students are successful because they see and understand what they are doing rather than memorize a rote procedure.

ImageThe Making Math Real Course Series equips Educators and Parents to:
• guide students incrementally through the concrete, semi- concrete, semi-abstract, and abstract levels

• provide a comprehensive manipulatives-based program
• develop higher order thinking skills in students through full synthesis of left and right hemisphere processing
• increase the student's math vocabulary by association with informal imagistic and story-based language
• integrate concept with procedure using multisensory, hands-on, manipulatives-based activities to develop students' ability to retain what they have learned
