Math Teachers: All winners of National Science Foundation For Excellence in Mathematics


Uniqueness of Number Success Video Program  
Number Success is a unique free online math program in which numerous reallife situations are used to demonstrate the many practical applications of math for either selfdirected 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 onsite scenes from across America, overseas, underwater, outer space, and practical workbook problemsolving. This constant reinforcement of math with realworld 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 reallife math into all levels of mathematics from elementary to college level. 

The emphasis on problembased learning from realworld 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.  
Developes Critical Thinking and Real World Problem Solving Solutions  
The emphasis on problembased learning from realworld experiences enables students to realize the importance of mathematics for their lives.

Enhance Reading Efficiency  
One of the added benefits of promoting critical thinking and realworld problemsolving skills is that it enhances reading proficiency. Practical problemsolving 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 problemsolving, 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, LifeSkills Math Power, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and Trigonometry. Free online videos are available for each unit in the workbook. By combining realworld applications and workbook problemsolving, Number Success provides a motivation to learn math. Since this is a selfdirective 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, awardwinning author, educator, and successful businessman wrote this series. He is the practical onlocation teacher demonstrating math with reallife application. Sommer is also a successful businessman with three businesses, one of which has the largest of  
Procedures  
Throughout this series students are shown stepbystep procedures by awardwinning mathematics teachers. This is followed by author, Carl Sommer, who provides onlocation scenes with reallife 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 problemsolving strategies are used in the workbooks: word problems, diagrams, drawings, tables, charts, and graphs. In realworld 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 realworld 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 realworld practical problemsolving 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 onlocation scenes. These onlocation scenes usually come after a teacher has taught a related lesson. And now teachers can go directly to the reallife application. These many realworld examples from addition to trigonometry will be of great help in reinforcing the lessons teachers are helping their students to learn.
