Being an educator for forty + years, I've taught all subjects to students K-8 which included math classes at all levels. I've taught special needs students and designed full curriculum for K-12 students. In addition, I have taught students online for seven years. When I was a young student, I thought I didn't like math because it was hard for me. The truth was, I didn't understand the fundamentals of math, even though I could calculate and get the right answers. This is why I am so passionate about learners understanding the concept and relationship to numbers and operations, because once they understand that, learners will excel in Math and really begin to love it as I do now.

This course is a real practical application of multiplication and division problem solving skills whether with whole numbers or fractions, the understanding of how these two operations work together and how "to do" multiplication and division. Learners needing a concentrated course in learning ways to master multiplication and division facts should enroll in "MATH Fact Families: A Picture Method of Learning Multiplication & Division Facts," an exciting, engaging way to learn multiplication facts in a uniquely different way.
