The goal of this highly successful math education program, Math Essentials, is to make math FUN and build self esteem while mastering the subject.

…and our family is a living testimony!

Okay, maybe math is still not their absolute favorite subject, but my 16 and 11 year old sons no longer complain about doing their math assignments each day.

This alone deserves an AMEN!

Each lesson takes about 20 minutes and consists of a detailed explanation, speed drills, multiple review problems, and at least one word problem at the bottom of the page.  You have the option of purchasing a teaching DVD for each book where Rick Fisher teaches each individual lesson.


How Math Essentials Works for Us

My 6th grader struggles in math and to be honest, I don’t do him any justice with my math teaching skills.  I have never had a strong understanding of the subject, but managed to get by.  Both of us reached the point that we were in tears virtually every day.  Fractions posed the biggest challenge.

Immediately after receiving Mastering Essentials Skills Book 1 and the accompanying teaching DVD, my son watched the correlating lesson taught by math teacher, Rick Fisher.  Rick encourages the child to work out the sample problems on scratch paper along with him during each lesson.  Guess what?  He totally understands fractions now!  He is excelling in math and moving through the book by himself at a fast pace.  No more tears and all I have to do is grade his assignment each day.  Yay!

Mastering Essentials Math Skills Book 1 and 2 consists of:

  • Short, concise, non-intimidating, self-contained lessons
  • A “Helpful Hints” section as part of each lesson, which insures that parents and students alike will understand new concepts
  • Includes an illustrated step-by-step teacher/parent guide and solutions
  • Requires only 20 minutes per day
  • Daily number fact speed drills
  • Consistent review is built into each lesson
  • Fun and exciting…students feel successful and develop self-esteem
  • Prepares students for all of areas math curriculum, which they will need in their future classes
  • Most of all, the program produces dramatic results

Check out samples and the Table of Contents of the Mastering Essentials Math Skills books.  These books are recommended for grade levels 4 and above.

Also, my sophomore struggles in Algebra.  His previous math program was not working for him so we were drawn to No-Nonsense Algebra solely because each lesson is taught online with the math teacher, Rick Fischer.  The online lesson only takes about 10 minutes each day.  When you receive the No-Nonsense Algebra book, you will be instructed to easily register online to retrieve each algebra lesson.  The online lessons are included when you purchase the The NoNonense Algebra book. This program works wonders for my son.  He is working through the book with no problems.  You can read my more detailed review here.

Our family has been blessed with the teachings of Math Essentials.  I feel like a load has been lifted off my shoulders.  My sons math spirits are lifted up and mommy is thrilled!
