Basic Math: Addition & Subtraction
Basic Math is taught by Murray Siegel of Marietta, Georgia. Dr. Siegel holds his doctorate in Mathematics Education, and has taught math since 1974. He received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics Teaching, is designated as a Master Teacher by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation and was named by Kentucky Educational Television as the "Best Math Teacher in America".
Why are students not embarrassed when they say, "I can't do math"? You rarely hear from a high school student, that "I can't do history" or "I can't do English", because they can't read. Why do we accept that some students just don't have the aptitude for math, while we assume that everyone has the aptitude to read?
In Dr. Siegel's eyes, if you can't "do math" you should be just as embarrassed as someone who cannot read. Now, there's no need to be embarrassed anymore. This series is the easiest way to become mathematically literate.
This First DVD will introduce you to the scope of the series and starts with understanding numbers, the basic key to understanding all mathematical concepts. And this lesson will do more than demonstrate the "how's" of arithmetic, you will also be shown why the methods work and how mathematics is applied to the "real world". You'll also learn the answers to the fundamental questions of "what is adding" and "what is subtracting?" so you can progress to learning addition and subtraction of fractions, decimals, integers, and eventually, algebraic polynomials.
You will Learn:
- How to use the Basic Math series.
- How to explain the meaning of the word number.
- To demonstrate the ability to add whole numbers.
- To demonstrate the ability to subtract whole numbers.
