Expect Outstanding Results!

  • ALL OF YOUR STUDENTS who are expected to move into higher levels of math CAN LEARN MATH FACTS TO AUTOMATICITY (instantly without hesitation).
  • When the Rocket Math Worksheet program is taught daily with fidelity to the curriculum, students learn at least one learning track (operation) to automaticity per semester.
  • When the Online Game program is used daily, students learn at least one learning track per quarter.
  • Students who have mastered math facts show marked improvement in higher order math algorithms including fractions, word problems, long division, multi-digit multiplication and a host of other areas.
  • Even pre-algebra and algebra students find coursework much easier when they successfully complete Rocket Math to learn math facts to automaticity.
  • TALK TO YOUR COLLEAGUES!  Word-of-mouth recommendations from teachers who have experienced successful student outcomes with Rocket Math are responsible for the widespread use of the curriculum throughout North America and Australia.

NOTE TO TEACHERS, SCHOOLS, DISTRICTS: While I am waiting for others to conduct and publish more research on Rocket Math, I make the following offer.

  • Note: The Rocket Math Online Game now has the ability for you to set up “gold-standard” randomized control studies comparing Rocket Math to any other program. Here’s info on that unique feature.
  • If you wish to conduct research comparing Rocket Math to some other method of practicing math facts and share your results–I will provide Rocket Math for free for the duration of the study.
  • If you publish the results of a study on Rocket Math,  I will provide a year’s subscription for your school at no cost.

I am certain it is the best math facts practice curriculum available but I have to wait for researchers independent of me to confirm that fact.
