It's never too late to learn how to do (and enjoy!) math. A primary cause of math difficulties is the inability to visualize and verbalize the concepts underlying math processes. Students try to memorize facts instead of being able to think through, reason and problem solve with numbers, working hard to memorize the "what" but often not understanding the "why".

NOW! Math uses a visual and physical approach to elementary math fundamentals, presenting abstract mathematical processes in tangible ways that help students easily discover and manipulate representations of numerical concepts, equations and problems.

How Does It Work?

Math requires you to know not just what to do, but also why to do it. Generalization of concepts (i.e. applying them to word problems and real-life situations) is much improved if students can understand why to take certain steps, rather than just mechanically memorizing formulas.

Many students struggle to grasp underlying concepts of math problems, even if they have the cognitive ability to do individual computations. Connecting the tangible to the abstract creates meaning and, subsequently, a system that bridges the gap between the decoding and the computation of word problems.

That’s why, like other NOW! Programs, NOW! Math begins at the foundational level – number imagery. Then the 'language' of math is explored. Students learn to key in on the words that tell them what is happening and what computation may be required. Then these concepts are applied and expanded to more complicated math processes (i.e. addition and multiplication lead to measuring and geometry).

Students who complete the NOW! Math program will learn how to interpret, express and reason through math problems using a linguistic and conceptually based system of learning, improving their overall comprehension, ability to rationalize and compute.

For Those Who Struggle With

  • Basic Operations

    Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division

  • Math Concepts

    Base-10; whole numbers; fractions; equivalents & ratios

  • Math Relationships

    Student memorizes rote information, cannot problem solve beyond what is memorized

  • Word Problems

    Student often gets lost in language, cannot comprehend what the problem 'needs' to be solved

  • Algebraic Thinking, Inferences, and Deduction

    Student has difficulty mixing mathematical concepts, cannot formulate ideas from information and build from it

  • Generalization

    Student understands problems in equations, but has difficulty applying it to real situations or other concepts

    When I first heard Dr. Conway speak at an early childhood conference, where I was also speaking, his words were music to my ears. Have spent 15 years in youth prevention work. When he said the #3 killer of teenagers is suicide and 89% of teen suicide notes have spelling errors consistent with dyslexia, I knew I needed his help with my kids. That’s not the thing a normal mom of a 5-year-old thinks. But I knew something wasn’t right. I didn’t know what the problem was and I didn’t know how to fix it until the first conversation with Dr. Conway of NOW! Programs. Our son is now reading on grade level for the first time. He’s also feeling “as good as the other kids” and being teased less, if at all. This program didn't just give my kid the ability to read, it quite possibly saved his life.

Research-Based. Evidence-Based. Peer-Reviewed.

Research-Based

Research-Based

The NOW! Programs® methodology is based on the latest scientific research regarding neural plasticity (efficient, long-lasting learning) and makes use of scientific principles regarding the neurodevelopment of speech, language, reading and spelling skills developed at professional clinical and educational organizations for over 27 years. NOW! Programs can efficiently and effectively improve these academic abilities with long-lasting results. Learn more about our research.

Evidence-Based

Evidence-Based

Dr. Conway and colleagues have conducted extensive research designed to analyze and augment methodology and implementation of practices developed in each program. Very few tutoring programs have results that are as repeatedly proven as the NOW! Company. Learn more about our evidence.

Peer-Reviewed

Peer-Reviewed

The NOW! Programs® are designed to build a solid foundation in sensory processing and thinking skills, from which the more advanced academic abilities will be developed, too. And research, not just our own, but of other professionals in our field, has shown these programs to be effective.
