Traditional math instruction often caters to auditory/sequential processors, who excel in thinking in words and symbols and following step-by-step instructions. However, this approach may not suit visual/spatial and kinesthetic learners, who thrive when presented with color, patterns, and hands-on activities. As a result, these children often struggle to grasp math concepts and procedures effectively.

The Right-Brained Math Series recognizes the diverse processing styles of children and aims to meet the needs of visual spatial learners, kinesthetic/tactile learners, and other students with unique learning needs. By incorporating visuals, stories, and hands-on activities, Right-Brained Math provides a holistic approach to learning math that aligns with the strengths of these learners. Through engaging activities and multisensory experiences, students can develop a deep understanding of numbers and math procedures, allowing them to apply their knowledge confidently.

With Right-Brained Math, children have the opportunity to learn in a way that resonates with their learning strengths, enabling them to overcome challenges and succeed in mathematics. By embracing their natural abilities and providing resources designed for their needs, students can unlock their full potential and achieve academic success.

Right-Brained Math books are available in two formats:

  • Physical  – physical book measuring 8.5” x 11”, softcover

Step into the world of Right-Brained Fractions and join the Ator Brothers on an epic adventure through the fascinating realm of fractions! Fractions can be daunting for many students, especially when they transition from working solely with whole numbers. Suddenly, the rules seem to change, and fractions don't behave like whole numbers do.

In whole numbers, the larger the number, the larger the amount, but with fractions, the larger the denominator, the smaller the amount becomes. It's a concept that can leave students scratching their heads. Furthermore, unlike whole numbers that can be counted sequentially, fractions introduce an infinite number of possibilities between each fraction, making them challenging to grasp through traditional memorization methods.

Enter Right-Brained Fractions, where fractions learning is transformed into an exhilarating journey filled with vibrant visuals, thrilling stories, and hands-on activities. Our unique approach caters specifically to tactile/kinesthetic and visual learners, ensuring that every student can engage with fractions in a way that makes sense to them.

We don't rely on rote memorization or complex procedures. Instead, we break down every term and concept into easily digestible parts, making them accessible and relatable. For example, we dissect the term "numerator" to reveal its meaning: "one who counts." Colorful illustrations further reinforce the meaning of each term, providing visual cues that aid in understanding.

Through real-life stories woven seamlessly into the lessons, students not only learn what to do but also why they're doing it. Concepts that once seemed abstract and meaningless now come to life, thanks to engaging narratives that connect fractions to everyday experiences.

But that's not all – our approach goes beyond just storytelling. Every lesson incorporates hands-on activities that allow students to interact with fractions in a tangible way before they ever pick up a pencil. Models are used consistently to provide visual representations of abstract concepts, ensuring that students can see and understand what's happening at every step.

For teachers, we've included helpful notes and guidance to make teaching fractions a breeze. You don't need extensive training or specialized knowledge – simply pick up the book and dive in with your students.

With Right-Brained Fractions, the magic of math becomes accessible to every learner. Say goodbye to confusion and frustration, and hello to a world where fractions are fun, engaging, and empowering!

Frequently Asked Questions

My child is struggling with math facts. How can I help?

Math can often be an abstract subject, filled with symbols that may pose challenges for children who are visual and spatial processors. These learners thrive when they have access to an educational approach that conveys the meaning of mathematical symbols and procedures in ways that align with their unique learning style.

Right-brain dominant learners, in particular, have distinct needs when it comes to learning math. They excel when they can comprehend the underlying concepts and the meaning behind mathematical operations, rather than relying on rote procedures. For these learners, memorization is often less effective because the information tends not to stick in long-term memory. Kinesthetic children, who frequently possess a strong spatial and holistic perception of math, tend to see the bigger picture surrounding mathematical problems. They can often visualize or intuit solutions without needing to follow the minute, historical steps often taught in traditional math education.

To effectively engage right-brain dominant learners, it is crucial to encourage them to explore the captivating patterns that emerge within the realm of numbers. By presenting numbers in a broader context, these learners can remember how to solve problems and recall number facts more readily. The use of visual imagery, storytelling, and hands-on activities plays a central role in their learning style, despite these elements not being traditionally associated with math education. By incorporating these strategies, educators can help right-brain dominant learners make sense of and excel in the world of mathematics.
