If your child is a kinesthetic learner who struggles with math, it is very likely that there is a mismatch between the child’s learning strengths and the approach being used to teach math. When this is the case, it is actually really great news because the teaching approach can be changed. Let’s keep in mind that upwards of 85% of children are kinesthetic learners.
Right-Brained Math is designed to utilize images, body movement, stories, and hands-on activities to teach math in a way that makes sense to kinesthetic learners.
These are the skills children need which form the foundation of all their math studies into the future.
There are not that many facts, but when your child knows these instantly and fluently, all subsequent math will be easier. In Right-Brained Addition & Subtraction
5 out of 5 stars - My daughter needed help!!!

"I felt like I had come up against a stone wall with my daughter in math. She just wasn't getting it. She is very very smart, so I knew it was not a learning disability! I got this book and it opened my eyes to different ways of learning. I wished that I would have been taught this way as a child. I struggled all through school. I hated math! My daughter loves this way of learning. She is flowering with it. Thank you so much for writing this book. This book is not a series of lessons, but rather teaches you (the teacher) how to teach a right brained student. It teaches you how they think and learn. It also provides you with everything you will need to do. Not text book style. You will have to get used to something more creative. Don't worry, it gives you many ideas. It's so easy you will wonder why you didn't think of yourself!!!"
This is the next skill set which is taught based on the facts to 10. Once children are fluent with the facts to 10, all other addition and subtraction is rooted in these facts. Children will be engaged in making 10s and in taking from 10s. Using this approach, you by-pass the need to struggle with borrowing and with carrying, which can be very frustrating to children.
Right-Brained Place Value picks up where Right-Brained Addition & Subtraction left off.

"My daughter did so well with the flashcards I wanted to find something to help her with math. Looking at math this way just makes so much sense to her as a super visual learner! Thanks for another great resource."
This often-dreaded subject becomes easy and attainable when it is presented to kinesthetic children using all the right-brained elements that make perfect sense to them. A prerequisite for this study is fluency with sums to 10 (see item 1 above).
The track record of Right-Brained Multiplication & Division is that children who had failed to learn their multiplication tables were able to very quickly master them when they used this right-brained approach.
MY SON LOVES THIS!

"My son loves this book! He is definitely a right-brain learner and this is a book that he can actually enjoy while he is learning. We have had no tears with this book, as we have with regular homework. Just yesterday we finished a chapter and he decided to read the next one on his own!"
are historically one of those hated subjects because children rarely understand what is actually happening when they compute using fractions. Traditionally, children are just asked to memorize fractions and the rules for computing with them.
Using Right-Brained Fractions, stories and tactile materials show children what fractions really are and show children what is actually happening when they compute with fractions.

"This really makes understanding fractions easy"
Where is your child when it comes to math? Is he counting on his fingers to add and subtract? Is she ok with adding but says she “can’t do” subtraction? Is he struggling with borrowing and carrying? Multiplication tables a problem?
