Category Description for RightStart Mathematics 2nd Edition:

RightStart uses a hands-on approach to help children understand, apply, and enjoy math. Synonymous with quality math, this 2nd edition is no exception. A complete rewrite, this edition employs recent research and includes more manipulatives. Based on studies comparing the differences between Japanese and US first grades, the 2nd edition incorporates certain aspects from Asian programs such as non-counting strategies and alternative number naming. RightStart teaches students to see quantities in groups of fives and tens. When adding 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 10 and greater implicitly relate the base ten system. Literally translated, eleven is "ten-one," twelve is "ten-two," etc. RightStart students learn to count this "math-way" before learning less intuitive words such as 11 or 19. The AL Abacus is the primary learning tool and helps children visualize numbers in groups of 5 and 10.

RightStart offers an easier-to-teach lesson format. Daily Lessons take 30 to 40 minutes with Objectives and Materials listed in the heading area of each lesson. Below that, the page is divided into two columns. Activities for Teaching are listed in the left column and include the Warm-Up (quick review) and instructions for teaching the lesson and new concept. Background and teacher explanations provide additional information in the right column. This information is accompanied by helpful illustrations where needed. Worksheets provide an opportunity for children to practice the days lesson, and at the lower levels, there may not be a worksheet for every lesson. Lessons are typically done in one day and each level is one complete school year. If you are unsure of the level at which you should begin, a placement questionnaire is available.

The Math Card Games Book is the source for games played within the lessons. Games can be used as many times as needed for proficiency. Special decks of cards are used with the book and both the book and decks are included in the manipulative kit for the 2nd edition. This book and decks are also sold separately and can be used to accompany other math programs. Math games help children learn the basics and increase proficiency.

Each level of the 2nd edition uses most of the same manipulatives used previously, with some additions; however, the sequence and use may change. As a result, there is now one manipulative kit that has everything you need for Levels A-F of the program. The set includes an AL abacus, Math Card Games book, place value cards, AL abacus tiles, folding meter stick, geoboards, colored 1" tiles, Casio calculator, tangrams, base ten picture cards, tally sticks, geared clock, six card decks, two fraction charts, drawing set, 4-in-1 Ruler, Goniometer, coins, geometry reflector, centimeter cubes, math balance, RightStart geometry panels, geometric solids, Yellow is the Sun CD, and dry erase pen. Buy this one kit when you start the program and youre set to go.

If you already have some of the manipulatives found in the 2nd edition kit, items can be purchased separately, or there are add-on kits available for levels A and B. The bridge kits will allow you to get the manipulatives you need without overlap.

Book bundles for levels A and B include a lesson book, worksheets, a Yellow is the Sun book, and appendix pages for that level. Level C includes the lesson book and worksheets. Level D through H bundles include lesson book, worksheets, and appendix pages. Levels B, C, D, E, and F include review lessons for children who are new to the RightStart program. Level G requires no prior work with the RightStart curriculum. Level G of RightStart Math is an applied math that is designed to be more independent than previous levels of RightStart Math. Level G is a middle school curriculum that includes perimeter, area, volume, metric system, decimals, rounding numbers, ratio, proportion, parallel lines, angles, midpoints, triangle congruence, Pythagorean theorem, golden ratio, Fibonacci numbers, tessellations, Pick’s theorem, and fractals. The bundle at this level includes 3 books: worksheets, lessons, and solutions manual. The student worksheets can also be purchased separately. Level H can be done independently and is a continuation of the topics found in Level G. The appendix pages included in the bundle are the same appendix pages found in the back of the lesson book, but they are already copied for your convenience - some printed on heavier cardstock, and some printed multiple times in to meet the requirements of the lessons.

I can't summarize this program better than the creator, so let me quote from the manual:

"There are ten major characteristics.

1. Refers to quantities of up to 5 as a group; discourages counting individually.

2. Avoids counting procedures for finding sums and remainders.

3. Employs games, not flash cards, for practice.

4. Once quantities 1 to 10 are known, proceeds to 10 as a unit. Uses 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. Uses expanded notation (overlapping) place-value cards for recording 10s and 1s

6. Proceeds rapidly to hundreds and thousands; uses manipulatives and place-value cards. Provides opportunities for trading between ones and tens, tens and hundreds, and hundreds and thousands with manipulatives.

7. Teaches mental computation and investigates informal solutions before learning procedures.

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

9. Introduces fractions with a linear visual model and includes all fractions from to 1/10.

10. Teaches short division for single-digit divisors, before long division."




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

Elizabeth C on May 2, 2019
After hearing several reviews about this curriculum, I wanted to try this for myself and my kids. I struggled with math all throughout school & want to redeem my flawed understanding of math, as well as teach my kids with the most hands-on interactive fun as possible. My son is a very kinesthetic learner and I am very visual/kinesthetic. This looks exciting and fun and very practical!

What manipulatives are necessary to have doubles of with multiple students?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: **Before I answer, please know that we just finished RightStart Math Level B, so my use/knowledge of the manipulatives is limited to Levels A and B.**

I would say at the very least each child should have their own abacus, since it is used so often. I think everything else can be shared for the most part, although that would largely depend on whether or not you have multiple children at the same RightStart level or on different levels.

* If you have multiple children on the same RS level, I think each child should have their own abacus, abacus tiles, tangrams (the main kit already includes 2 sets of these, fyi), and fraction charts (the main kit includes 2 of these as well, but only one set is pre-cut and that's the one that's used a lot).

* If you have multiple children on different RS levels, I think each child should have their own abacus but everything else can be shared, since the lessons in which the various manipulatives are used do not tend to overlap. For example, in Level A the first lesson involving the geared clock is #106, while in Level B it is #77.

Finally (and this is a bit random) but I do remember thinking that I wished there were more plastic coins in the money set for when we play the math games. I thought that while playing with only one student; if there were multiples I think the lack of pieces would be even more problematic. I don't think you can purchase those as a stand-alone item from RightStart; Rainbow Resource or a toy company might sell some.

We really love RightStart - hope it works for you too!

Best, Laura K.
how long does it take to teach one Right Start math lesson? (I have 9 kids-4 would be in this program at different levels)

BEST ANSWER: It is pretty parent intensive, the length of the lesson depends on the level. If I were you I would consider a program that was a bit less parent intensive. Maybe Math U See or Singapore Primary Math?
Hi, I wanted to buy Level A right start math work book and manupulatives 2nd edition.guide me with products ?. Also would like to know what are the pre- requisite knowledge for starting level A
Sasi P on Dec 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I did the same last year with my Kindergartener. I bought the 2nd edition Level A book set and the full manipulatives set. You won't use several of the manipulatives in level A because the set is meant to cover all of the levels (at least those that had been released at the time). It was quite a lot to spend the first year, but this year I only had to buy the Level b book set. And for my subsequent kids I only need the workbook (or continue using the ebook).
There is no prerequisite knowledge for starting, and I would actually discourage against too much prep since the program encourages visualization and discourages counting at the beginning. I'm actually starting it slowly with my pre-k daughter this year (because she's begging to), and it's working just fine.
Do you have a this set that can be shipped to Hawaii?
A shopper on May 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry but we do not. The size of the box for this set cannot be shipped through the US post office. You might try contacting the publisher to see if they have alternative arrangments for shipping to HI.
Are all the manipulatives used in level A?
A shopper on Sep 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, not all of the manipulatives are used in Level A. This is the manipulative set used for all of the Right Start Math Levels A-G, 2nd edition. If you plan to continue on through the levels, this is the best deal for the manipulatives. If you are just trying Level A, you may want to purchase the kit specifically for A.
I was wondering why this product can not be shipped ourside USA, as all the other products seem to be able to? thank you
A shopper on Jun 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's because of the size of the box it comes in.
So am I correct in assuming that if you purchase this kit this will include everything for all levels/stages of the 2nd edition of right start math, from A thru G? The Add-on kits to go from B to C, for example, would no longer be required? I would only need to purchase the Book Bundles for each new year. Is this correct?

This programs is so wonderful. The only thing I was disappointed about was this set did not come with the baggies for storing individual card games and manipulative that I saw on YouTube reviews. That would have been extremely helpful. I am currently using sandwich bags (not ideal and odd when you need to use a gallon size bag for thin strips of paper and such. But it works). The quality of this manipulative set is very good!! I love that it’s one purchase for the entire curriculum.

Very well made product.
I would recommend the product. It is a little pricey but since I plan on using it for long term I feel like it will pay for itself. My son has enjoyed every manipulative we've used so far its a low stress learning.

I have been looking at RightStart for 6 years, but never bought it because the price intimidated me. For my 3rd child I decided to take the plunge, and I am so glad I did! I love the ease of use and the scope and sequence. I just regret not starting sooner! :-)
