Here you will see students as young as 4 and 5 years old doing algebra and "advanced" math, without ever knowing it's supposed to be hard.
You are invited to learn how to use this method...

Multisensory Math Training

Parent-teacher training. August 18th and 25th.

Gmail video chat.  Please install Google hangouts  & practice before the seminar not when you first try to join. It's actually quite easy & only takes a couple of minutes. Be sure to add me so that I can add you back and invite you.


To sign-up simply PayPal me or use patreon.

Cost is only $100 for 2-4 hour trainings.  For $100 you can come to one or both.  Use this PayPal link.

Saturday, August 18th and 25th 6 AM Hawaii Standard Time.

If you need to use a credit card or can't use PayPal I can invoice you. That way you can use any credit card.

Those people in the superduper Facebook group,  can use my patreon link to stretch the payments out and still come to the training's "live" if you just pledge as little as five bucks a month...some of you less.  I told you membership has its trust you guys. Other than that I've been burned 12 times +1 now in the Multi-pay format.  You will also get the replay.

I only have nine slots available, I never worry about filling up,  I plan on recording The Summer Training, & you can get the replay for as little as $1 or $2 per month via patreon.  In fact I'll be building some patreon pages that have some password-protected stuff like this,  on them.  For one dollar you get this much on a Password-protected page, for two dollars you get this much for $3 you get this much more etc...And I'll let you take the accumulated patreon off the price of a Module too.  For example, if you've been paying for a year and then you want a module, the price will be will be $111-60.

There will be five levels, patreon lvl 1 - 5.  Level five will have everything you get with levels 1 to 4 plus more. level four will have everything you get with level 1-3 plus more... Etc.  Stay tuned for more details.

Want a Combo Kit Combo instead of just the combo kit? $420.00. Deluxe. $440.00.

Sale Ends August 10th.

Right now you can get training on the best use of your base 10 blocks in Module II.  Click that link for some brief excerpts. You can get an idea of what to expect.  Eventually this will be added to Module II.  The same way  the winter training was added to the parent teacher training.  There are now hours and hours of training for you in Module II.

For now:

"What the hell is wrong with you? Of course "nobody" buys your training it's only 15 bucks {price is currently 24 on it's way to 49} so they think it's s*#t, and there's no way for you to tell them this is probably the best thing on the internet when it comes to learning how to teach math...they'll never believe you--that they can get this for basically no money. No Way! They are used to paying way more and getting way less. I can't believe it, so why should they? 15 bucks? Can't be any good."~ from a training that didn't make it to video.

Multisensory Math Double-digit Multiplication Using Base 10 Blocks

Using base 10 blocks for a multisensory math experience is crucial to understanding. Using manipulatives to teach multiplication should be both easy and fun for student and teacher. Some children get "a little big for their britches" as my grandmother used to say.  They want to prove that they're a big girl or a big boy by not playing with blocks, because Base 10 Blocks are for little kids...In fact quite a few high school teachers believe the same fallacy.

However, it's finally becoming recognized that adding the tactile and visual components the mathematics makes it much easier to understand. I have PDFs at Crewton Ramone's House Of Math that you can download that say the same, from prestigious schools like Stanford and Cornell.  It's very simple. Maria Montessori figured it out decades ago. Manipulatives make math easier to understand, because it allows for all the senses (Learning Modalities) to get involved.

I have these. I can see now why they are inferior.

Visual auditory and kinesthetic learners polite benefit from using Base 10 Blocks. On this blog and website I show you how to use your base 10 blocks to best effect.  Any-base 10 blocks will work, but some are better than others.  I got this picture and note from a person that just recently purchased a password.

The reason people are so enthusiastic about my website, Is that I don't just give you boring theory, you get actual lessons with actual students, non-rehearsed in real-time.

They still work, it's just that it's going to take a lot longer to build simple problems if all you have is units, rods and flats.

The primary reason these aren't used more or more widely adopted in public schools is it takes too long to build problems...& using base 10 blocks becomes tedious when you have to get units or tens out one by one.

Further, most of them use these only for Addition Subtraction & Place Value & have no idea how to use them to teach algebra, precalculus or calculus Concepts.

All we are doing is counting quickly and accurately, counting quickly without being accurate is no good and counting accurately but taking forever is also no good.  Multiplication is the absolute milestone for counting quickly. At the house of math, We don't just teach the multiplication tables out to 9 x 9,  or even 12 x 12, you want your students to have an easy math life? Help them memorized there multiplication tables out to 20 x 20.

The preferred methodology which is an absolute failure currently in public schools is using worksheets and flashcards ad nauseam. How about we play and have fun instead? Multiplication tables will be memorized easily and quickly By building, playing and singing songs.

All I am showing you are better algorithms. which make Multiplication fast and easy and therefore fun.  Rather than telling you I'm showing you.

Count the big ones first.

The entire video along with "a lot" of other content, is available with a password.  Those that have joined and paid for the superduper supersecret math group already have access on Facebook.  This is not the same as the regular Facebook page.  This lesson will be found on the Sample Lessons Page. & on the password-protected Multiplication Page.  Scroll down, under the green arrow you will see a link that simply says, "more two digit cross multiplication" right above "Playing with Macaroni."

There's a difference between theory and practice. Here is a little bit of theory. on my website you will see theory in practice. The trainings were for August 4 and 11th...If you want to see the long version of the second video Consider a password, or hit my for a buck or two & I'll let you into the Facebook Page.

Information on passwords can be found by clicking here.

On my website, I explain the importance of starting the concrete blocks, moving to pictures, and then finally to symbols.  I also explain that this is the ideal, but practicality may dictate otherwise. You can see that I start in the concrete (Manipulatives) & then have the symbols right alongside the Base 10 Blocks...Soon I am only drawing pictures and she is building them...Above you can see her doing  15×13. This is for her to get the idea or concept of it. You don't want to build every problem. Why would you want to build 59 × 37? Drawing it is fast and easy, and easier than that is just using symbols which is the goal.  If you catch them early enough they'll be able to do it in their heads, which answers the age old question, "What if they don't have the blocks?"

People have been telling me to do this for years now. And I agree patreon makes it much easier to donate your time.  And if you were so inclined please leave a comment below. However, if you want to contact me, use the information on the contact tab, because I might not see your Facebook or other comment for months.
