Category Description for RightStart Mathematics:

Based on research comparing the differences between Japanese first grades and first grade classrooms in the U.S., this curriculum incorporates certain aspects from Asian math programs such as non-counting strategies and, for us, an alternative number naming system. In this program, the student is taught to see quantities in groups of fives and tens. When asked to add 9 + 7, instead of counting 7 up from 9, you would take 1 from 7 to make 10 and 6. This program also uses a unique number naming system. Asian words for numbers greater than 10 implicitly give you a feel for the base ten system. Literally translated, eleven is "ten-one," twelve is "ten-two," and so on. RightStart students learn to count the "math-way" before they are taught the less intuitive words for 11 to 19.

I cant summarize this program better than the creator, so let me quote from the manual:

"There are eleven major characteristics.

1. Refer to quantities of up to 3 as a group; do not count individually.

2. Use fingers to show quantities up to 10; teach 6 to 10 as 5 plus a quantity.

3. Avoid counting procedures for finding sums and remainders.

4. Once quantities 1 to 10 are known, proceed to 10 as a unit. Use the "math way" of counting; say for example, 1-ten 1 for eleven, 1-ten 2 for twelve, 2-ten for twenty, and 2-ten 5 for twenty-five.

5. Use expanded notation (overlapping) place-value cards for recording 10s and 1s

6. Proceed rapidly to hundreds and thousands; use place-value cards. Provide opportunities for trading between ones and tens, tens and hundreds, and hundreds and thousands with manipulatives.

7. Only after the above work, give the traditional English names for quantities 20 to 99 and then 11 to 19.

8. Teach tens-based strategies for addition and subtraction facts that have a sum > 10. Teach informal solutions and mental computation before written algorithmic work.

10. Teach four-digit addition and subtraction on the abacus; let the children discover the paper and pencil algorithms.

11. Short division precedes long division, which is taught in fourth grade."

In Level G, students continue to practice arithmetic, fractions and decimals, while they begin to also explore triangles, area, volume, ratios, Pythagorean Theorem, tiling, and other new concepts.

All levels require a lesson manual and worksheets, which are included in the starter kits. (The worksheets are also available separately for multiple students.) Lesson manuals contain detailed lesson plans with helpful diagrams and teaching notes. Both lesson manuals and worksheets are spiral-bound. Add on kits allow you to move forward, buying only what you need in addition to what you already have for the next levels. Deluxe Starter kits (and deluxe add-on kits) are now available, which include everything in the original kits, plus additional recommended books and manipulatives. Please note that if you start with a deluxe kit, you will need a different upgrade kit to transition to the next level. See individual descriptions for more details on kit-specific contents.~ Anh

Are these absolutely necessary for Right Start Level A?

RightStart Mathematics Level A Worksheets (1st Edition)
Abacus Tiles
Do I need to buy the worksheets separately from the Level A lessons? It seems that a used copy of the RightStart Math Level A lessons which I purchased has 28 worksheets in the back. Could I just photocopy those?
on Jul 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If you have a copy of the RightStart Level A Lesson Book, you will need the Worksheets. They are a separate spiral bound book and not the same as the worksheets in the back of the Lesson book.
What math do you move to after completing all Right Start Levels?
A shopper on Mar 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Per the publisher: A student completing all levels of Right Start including the Geometry unit is ready to start the VideoText Algebra series.
Are the Appendices the same as the worksheets?

RightStart Mathematics Appendices for Levels A and B (1st Edition)
BEST ANSWER: No, the appendices are not the same as the worksheets. The lessons call frequently for a game of
Some kind. The cards needed for the games are in the appendix of the teacher's manual and need to be photocopied-often onto card stock. If you do not
Want to bother with the photocopying, you can purchase the appendices booklet, which has the work all done for you (you will still have to do some
Cutting out).

I love this curriculum! I am a mother of five and when we started homeschooling my eldest had just finished 3 months of kindergarten in the local public school We made the switch to homeschooling at that time in my head I had decided that I could do better than that We spent the first year making math fun and tangible I really wanted to find a math curriculum that I believed in and did not teach bad habits I made up math games on my own and found it exhausting to stay up on the subject matter without leaving any holes but I refused to jump into any old math curriculum I then came across RightStart and I was hooked It was everything that I was looking for in a math curriculum It was hands on as well as visual with the abacus It did not teach any bad habits but instead had tricks that I wish someone would have taught me when I was younger It was fun also with math games interspersed amongst the lessons And it was all done for me! I now have four kids using this curriculum I start them in level A in first grade though and then go up from there I would highly recommend this product It incorporates great math skills that one can build on all the way to adulthood! On a sidenote I now can add quicker myself! :)
