Uniqueness of Number Success Video Program

Number Success is a unique free online math program in which numerous real-life situations are used to demonstrate the many practical applications of math for either self-directed or teacherdirected learning.

A constant complaint of students is, "Where will I ever use this math?" Throughout the series, Number Success answers that question with on-site scenes from across America, overseas, underwater, outer space, and practical workbook problem-solving. This constant reinforcement of math with real-world application at the same time students are learning, motivates them to learn and apply what they are studying. Number Success online program is an extremely valuable tool that presents real-life math into all levels of mathematics from elementary to college level.

The emphasis on problem-based learning from real-world experiences enables students to realize the importance of mathematics for their lives. Connecting math to students' lives is critical if we want them to excel in mathematics. In addition to showing math's relevance throughout its workbooks, Number Success presents problems in which students must analyze and use logical and critical thinking skills to find solutions.

Enhance Reading Efficiency
One of the added benefits of promoting critical thinking and real-world problem-solving skills is that it enhances reading proficiency. Practical problem-solving relies on reading comprehension. Students must understand what they are reading in order to solve mathematical problems. Number Success, by its constant promotion of practical problem-solving, improves students' mathematical abilities and literacy skills. When literacy skills are improved, it enhances learning for all disciplines.
A Complete Practical Math Enrichment Program
There are 12 workbooks in this series: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Fractions, Decimals and Percentage, Calculator Achievement, Life-Skills Math Power, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and Trigonometry. Free online videos are available for each unit in the workbook. By combining real-world applications and workbook problem-solving, Number Success provides a motivation to learn math. Since this is a self-directive math program, students can work at various grade levels and learn at their own pace.
Award Winning Teachers
The four teachers instructing for Number Success have won the prestigious Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics from the National Science Foundation. Carl Sommer, award-winning author, educator, and successful businessman wrote this series. He is the practical on-location teacher demonstrating math with real-life application. Sommer is also a successful businessman with three businesses, one of which has the largest of
Procedures

Throughout this series students are shown step-by-step procedures by award-winning mathematics teachers. This is followed by author, Carl Sommer, who provides on-location scenes with real-life application. This constant reinforcement between math and the real world enables students to gain a new appreciation for what they are learning; for when math makes sense, it increases meaning. Students are then given various problems in the workbook to solve. When the unit is completed, there is commonly a review and test. If students are unable to grasp the material, additional reviews and tests are available.

Connecting math to students' lives is critical if we want them to excel in mathematics. In addition to showing math's relevance throughout all its workbooks, Number Success presents problems in which students must analyze and use logical and critical thinking skills to find solutions. Various problem-solving strategies are used in the workbooks: word problems, diagrams, drawings, tables, charts, and graphs. In real-world problem solving, students must first understand the problem, think of a solution, carry out the solution, and then determine if the solution solves the problem. This constant application of practical problem solving enhances critical and logical thinking skills. Presenting real-world examples throughout the workbook problems and video presentations will enable students to gain a great appreciation for mathematics.

Teachers and parents will greatly benefit with this real-world practical problem-solving program, for it will motivate students to want to learn math.

Math Teachers
An added feature of Number Success is that teachers can directly go to on-location scenes. These on-location scenes usually come after a teacher has taught a related lesson. And now teachers can go directly to the real-life application. These many real-world examples from addition to trigonometry will be of great help in reinforcing the lessons teachers are helping their students to learn.
