Campers learn the 36 multiplication facts, the roots from which much of the rest of math grows, through a proprietary MathTree® process that provides a rock-solid conceptual base for multiplication while enhancing fact solving and memory with a variety of mathematically based “tricks” with exotic names such as 6 x Even and Thumbs Up, many using hand configurations. No flash cards! Instead, campers connect to proportionally-sized multiplication fact cards that engage them physically, verbally, and auditorially. Campers play plenty of math games and use manipulatives for an assortment of math activities.

Kudos for MathTree
As a teacher there is nothing more exciting than to witness your students’ confidence, enthusiasm, and motivation for math rise well beyond your expectations. I see that every semester I’ve taught MathTree. Students who have participated in MathTree have a stronger and deeper foundation of numbers and mathematical concepts which sets them up for success in the classroom. Students love the games and they see how fun math can be. Many parents have commented on their child’s difference in attitude towards math and the knowledge their child has gained after being part of the MathTree group. It’s fun to teach such a hands on math program and see that light come on for all students.
