Steve Demme, a successful teacher who has taught Math in public and private schools, as well as higher education, was asked to teach Math to a homeschool co-op in Massachusetts. Steve combined his knowledge of curriculum with his experience as a teacher and taught the students once a week using a multi-sensory skill-based approach. He developed worksheets for the students to take home and practice what they had learned with their parents.
Steve was approached by several of the homeschool co-op parents who asked to purchase the materials for the course. Steve began producing and selling the workbook, and provided training sessions for the parents to teach them how to use the program to instruct their children.
As interest grew, the Math-U-See Classic product line was created. Videos of the parent training sessions were created and sold with the workbooks, and our distinctive manipulatives were produced.
Demand continued to grow and Math-U-See, Inc. was established.
A network of independent distributors was developed to represent Math-U-See at homeschool curriculum fairs and sell to home educators in different regions. The first Distributors’ Conference was held in 1996.
The curriculum was revised to focus on skill level and mastery of each skill before going on to the next book. The videos were similarly updated and were changed to a DVD format.
Math-U-See curriculum went through a design revision and additional application and enrichment (honors) pages were added to enhance the secondary Math curriculum.
Success in Intervention and Special Education programs led to expansion into schools and small classroom environments. We added new employees to keep pace with our growth.
Math-U-See continued to grow to meet market demand.
We released an updated version of Primer – Zeta in early 2013. The new Application & Enrichment pages in the Student Workbooks and extra teaching tips in the Instruction Manuals address additional topics requested by our customers. Check our website often for more info on new releases!
