How does the Learn Math Fast System work?
OK, enough of the sales pitch, let's get down to the real question...how does it work? The Learn Math Fast System is just that...it's a system used to teach math, from A to Z, quickly with a complete understanding of the subject. It starts by giving students the ability to sort numbers in their mind. Some people have this ability naturally, they are able to add numbers such as 17 + 8 in their mind, but not everyone can do that. Typically, a person who struggles to learn multiplication facts also struggles to add small numbers in their mind. The Learn Math Fast System teaches HOW to add and subtract numbers in your mind, making all future math so much easier.
A young person may take a week to learn the first lesson and that's OK. The student MUST know all the combinations of numbers that equal 5 before moving on to the ones that equal 6. It's important to the whole program. Volume I provides several ways in which to teach these early lessons and the teacher should feel free to lean towards the method that works best with their particular student. For example, some kids prefer to hand write their answers while others prefer to verbalize their answers. Both of these learning styles are addressed by writing on worksheets and taking verbal tests. If you have an independent reader, he/she will be able to take the book and learn on his/her own. And then there is the wiggly guy, he will respond well to moving around the coins to learn addition. Which ever method works best for the student is the one that should be repeated, if more practice is needed.
Older students will be able to get through the lessons in volume I much more quickly. They may even complete 3 lessons in a day and that's OK too. As long as the student is still in a "learning frame of mind" and has a good attitude, he/she can complete as many lessons as possible. Each lesson is so important to the overall success that "A" to "A+" work is expected. Students are instructed to look at the answers in the back of the book and learn from their mistakes or even repeat the lesson if necessary.
Once the foundation is set and the student can add, subtract, multiply, and divide with the greatest of ease, it is time to use those skills with fractions, decimals, and percentages. These topics are generally taught over the course of fourth, fifth, and sixth grade, but it doesn't have to take that long. Fractions and decimals can be taught quickly when you use money as an example. Most kids know that four quarters equal a dollar, so the first lesson practically writes itself. (Read the sample pages here). This is followed up with a thorough explanation on how decimal numbers and percentages relate to fractions, summing up 4th and 5th grade in just a month or two. When students see how closely related the three concepts are, they quickly gain a real understanding of fractions and decimals; one that will last a lifetime, not just during test time.
Throughout the books, students will learn several tricks and tips to help them recall important concepts. And if they need a little extra reminder, they can just look at their Big, Big Bookmark (included) to get a quick reminder on how to solve certain mathematical equations.
Of course, all the other important concepts are taught as well. Students will learn about Place Value, Ratios and Proportions, Mixed Numbers, Negative Numbers, US Measurements and the Metric System, just to name a few. However, there are a few topics that you won't find in these books. For example, learning to tell time, Roman Numerals, Tally Marks, and the days of the week/year are not included in the Learn Math Fast System. That is one of the reason students are able to get through the books so quickly. We focus on MATH and how to fully understand the subject by giving lots of examples and thorough explanations of each new topic in a logical, sequential order.
Volume III introduces pre algebra and can usually be completed in about three months at only an hour a day. The author assumes the reader has no previous knowledge of algebra and so she explains everything thoroughly with lots of examples. Paying special attention to the most confusing aspects of algebra and highlighting the most important parts. The final chapter in volume III gives an in depth lesson on Slopes and Linear Equations. Having this information will make algebra I and II much easier to learn.
Up to this point in the books there has been no mention of geometry. That topic is saved until Volume IV because by that time students will be better prepared to handle concepts such as using formulas or having a Greek letter stand for 3.14.
A student who completes the first four volumes will have a solid understanding of math up to the eighth grade level and will be well prepared for algebra. Volumes V and VI teach Algebra I and II with a focus on how to solve the type of problems found on the SAT or College Placement Tests. Volume V teaches how to SOLVE complex algebraic equations; that's the first half of the battle. Volume VI teaches how to BUILD equations to solve complex word problems and with the knowledge gained in Volume V, solving that equation will be simple.
An older student could complete all six books in about one year, but it may take several years for a younger student to learn all the material. Everyone is different, so the actual time line will vary from one person to the next. But no matter your age, anyone who reads these seven books will have a solid understanding of higher math.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Is the Learn Math Fast System a supplemental or a stand-alone curriculum?
Well, it's right in between. It has all the math you NEED to know, but since there are a few topics missing, as mentioned above, it isn't 100% stand alone. An older child will find everything they need to succeed in math, but a younger child will need some supplements along the way.
Are the answers included with the books?
Yes, and not just the answers, but the full solutions with all work shown.
Are the book consumable or non-consumable?
Each book has all worksheets and tests included that can be written on, but most people choose to print the worksheets and tests from our website, so the books can be reused.
Is there a money back guarantee?
Yes, every book comes with a full 30-day, no questions asked, money back guarantee (less shipping).
