Slide 1: It's Based on Montessori
Our Montessori-based curricula recognizes that children have four primary learning styles:
|Style||How||Nerves that connect to the brain|
|Visual||Reading and viewing pictures from a lesson book||The retina and optic nerve|
|Tactile||Playing with manipulatives||Nerve cells in the skin|
|Auditory||Listening and singing to music||Auditory nerve|
|Kinesthetic||Moving the body||Nerve cells deep in the muscles|
Each learning style reaches a different part of the brain. Without stimulating all parts of the brain, necessary connections are not made and learning is shallow and memory is short. That's why with ShillerMath children attain deeper understanding and longer retention.
Every concept in the curriculum is covered from each learning style, ensuring a solid foundation for years to come.
Slide 2: It's Got Everything You Need
Every ShillerMath kit includes everything a parent and child need to achieve learning success:

Slide 3: It's Parent-Friendly
Some parents are anxious about math and/or language arts and are worried about projecting this anxiety onto their children. Other parents don't have time to learn new methods. And no parent has hours to study before her child can begin a lesson.
With ShillerMath, parents don't need to know Montessori or math/language arts and there's ZERO lesson preparation time: Everything you need to say is in quotes and complete instructions are provided for every lesson.
Just open the first page of the first Lesson Book and start reading what is in quotes. The best part of the scripting is that children age 6 or older may read most of their own directions, letting children take control of their own learning as soon as they are developmentally ready to do so.
Because the words are already prepared for you by math, behavioral, and educational experts, you'll avoid the most common errors parents make when helping their children learn math. It's like having the world's top educators right there in your home. And should you or your child need personal attention toll-free phone support is included FREE with every purchase.
Slide 4: It's High Quality and Long-Lasting
High quality materials and workmanship are the hallmarks of ShillerMath Montessori-based manipulatives. You and your child will appreciate the color, functionality, and sturdiness of each of the manipulatives. Explore!
To appeal to all the senses, ShillerMath includes an audio CD with songs specifically written for ShillerMath by Ron Brown, the acclaimed children's entertainer and educator. Children love to dance and sing to the catchy tunes, and to listen to the CD in the car.
All told, ShillerMath provides everything you need for a comprehensive, Montessori-based home study curriculum.
Slide 5: We Leave Nothing to Chance
First, ShillerMath provides a battery of diagnostic tests that:
- Pinpoint exactly what holes exist in a child's understanding; and
- Specify exactly what lessons to revisit to fix the problem
When children successfully complete the ShillerMath tests, they score well on standardized testing that is becoming the norm in middle schools and have the concepts, tools, and approach to make future learning fun and rewarding.
Have a 6 (or 13) year old? Other products say, OK, here's the 1st (or 8th) grade curriculum, that's where you start. But what if your child - of any age - has holes in his or her Kindergarten or even pre-K math or language arts foundation? Because the exact activities to complete are shown for each incorrect answer, these tests ensure that every student has a solid foundation before new concepts are introduced, avoiding the boring repetition of easy activities your child already knows and focusing instead on problem areas.
Second, we're with you every step of the way. When you purchase a ShillerMath kit, you get free and timely access to the legendary ShillerMath support team by phone or email for every question or issue, no matter how small. No other curriculum vendor offers this level of quality support.
