Shape Math® is a revolutionary technique for doing written and mental math problems.  It uses a series of shapes that fit in logical patterns that make a geometric representation of the 10 base number system.  It allows its students to do mental problems into the hundreds, divide without times tables and visually and conceptually understand what were previously purely abstract concepts.  Instead of thinking how two numbers add together the student thinks how two numbers fit together.   It is specifically tailored to how the dyslexic and dyscalculic minds work because Shape Math® was designed by a dyslexic who is also dyscalculic.

The Shape Math web app contains over 14 hours of instructional videos that will walk you through the Shape Math program.  You will start from scratch and end up comfortable with the four main operations, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and using the Shape Math techniques to work with money.  You will be able to perform math operations mentally as well as in written form. It is like having your own personal tutor that works when you want to and goes at your pace. To the right is a example of how Shape Math does the problem 3+2 = 5.
