Testimonials

What a brilliant site you have!!! I love it, especially as it saves me hours and hours of hard work. Others who haven't found your site yet don't know what they are missing!

It is quite frankly the best money I have ever spent on my child. I really cannot thank you enough for providing this, it really is brilliant.

You have the most amazing program. Everybody loves it and the student's results have been in the high 90%'s, it's definitely due to your program.

  • K – Kindergarten
    • K.G – Geometry
      • Mathematics

        • K.G.2 – Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.

      • Mathematics

        • K.G.4 – Analyze and compare two- and three-dimensional shapes, in different sizes and orientations, using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, parts (e.g., number of sides and vertices/“corners”) and other attributes (e.g., having sides of equal length).

  • 1 – Grade 1
    • 1.G – Geometry
      • Mathematics

        • 1.G.1 – Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and three-sided) versus non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size) ; build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes.
