Homeschool Math Curriculum
RightStart Math is a hands-on program that replaces counting with visualization and an early introduction to place value. The program utilizes their proprietary AL Abacus to provide both kinesthetic and visual learning. The two-sided Abacus helps students recognize quantities– eliminating traditional methods that utilize counting, memorizing, and drill.

RightStart provides a comprehensive math program for your children: one that is easy to teach and one that gives children the foundation they need for everyday living and for studying science in our technological world.
This unique program uses visualization of quantities, de-emphasizes counting, and provides strategies (visual pictures) for learning the facts. The primary learning tool is the AL Abacus, a specially designed two-sided abacus that is both kinesthetic and visual. Math needs to be taught so 95% is understood and only 5% memorized. When children understand, they need to spend less time in review and practice. When they don’t understand, they memorize until the burden becomes too great and then they give up. With RightStart, understanding is stressed throughout.
