We’ve got a new lesson up on the site and on the YouTube channel.

Here is a link to the lesson page (complete with the Ray’s Arithmetic story problems accompanying the multiplication table):

Thanks to the Ron Paul Curriculum and Ray’s Arithmetic, This Girl LOVES Math!

Here is a great example of what happens when you take a classic mathematics program like Ray’s Arithmetic and fuse it with a powerful online platform like the Ron Paul Curriculum.

You get successes like the one of this young lady named Hailey.

Listen to her story:

Hailey formerly went to public school.  She hated math.

She tells us why as succinctly as any third or fourth grader could say it: Common Core was “like a locked gate” keeping her cruelly barred from the tranquil gardens of mathematics understanding.

But once her parents removed her from the labyrinthine confines of the public school classrooom and enrolled her in the Ron Paul Curriculum, that locked gate was opened, and she was then able to enter into the lush garden of math understanding.  Now she understands it.

Now she “gets it.”  Now she LOVES it!

For Hailey, math is no longer this mysterious mythology constructed by academic theoreticians, who only succeeded in confusing and befuddling her through Common Core.

Now, math is the bright, clear path of simple, beginning arithmetic that it should be.  Now it is a more level and straight path for her to follow.  For this hopeful young scholar, liberation came in the form of an old-fashioned approach to teaching and learning math called Ray’s Arithmetic.

This story has been repeated, I’m sure, numerous times by students whose parents have enrolled them in one of the Ray’s Arithmetic-based courses that are offered at Ron Paul Curriculum.  Beginning arithmetic is taught in Math 1, Math 2, Math 3 and Math 4.  And so far, I’m very pleased with the response that these courses have been receiving.

Something tells me, there are a lot more Haileys out there!
