# NOW! Math Concept

Imagery® Program

A staggering 60-100% of people with dyslexia struggle with math. The inability to visualize and verbalize the concepts underlying math processes is at the root of many math difficulties like dyscalculia. NOW! Math Concept Imagery® is a revolutionary, research-based online tutoring program that uses a visual and kinesthetic approach to teach elementary math fundamentals. This program presents abstract mathematical processes in tangible ways that help students discover and successfully work with representations of numerical concepts, equations and problems.

#### Improve These Math Functions

With the help of a NOW! Programs^{®} math tutor, a learning disability like dyscalculia will no longer stand in the way of understanding math and being able to do it.

**Basic Operations**– Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division**Math concepts**– Base-10, whole numbers, fractions, equivalents and ratios**Math relationships**– Memorizing rote information, problem-solving beyond memorized material**Word problems**– Interpreting language, comprehending the problem to be solved**Algebraic Thinking, Inferences and Deduction**– Mixing mathematical concepts, formulating ideas from information and building from it**Generalization**– Understanding problems in equations and applying them to real situations or other concepts

**The Beginning Is a **

**Great Place to Start Over**

NOW! Math Concept Imagery^{®} is a multisensory, structured, intensive online program for dyscalculia, or other math learning disabilities. It starts at the foundational level – number imagery. The student explores the language of math, learning the words that express what is happening and the required computations.

Next, the program further expands to more complicated math processes. For instance, addition and multiplication activities lead to measuring and geometry. Ultimately, the student learns to do and enjoy math.

## Why NOW! Math Concept Imagery^{®}?

### A Language-Based Approach

NOW! Math Concept Imagery^{®} begins with a language-based approach using visual and kinesthetic ways to understand elementary math fundamentals, teaching foundational concepts. Students who previously struggled to understand underlying math concepts start to interpret, express and reason through problems using our linguistic and conceptually-based dyscalculia program online.

### A Two-Fold Process

Math requires two cognitive processes – numeral imagery and conceptual imagery. NOW! Math Concept Imagery^{®} combines those two processes by imaging the numeric sounds, symbols and representations of math concepts. The student then interprets and associates the sound with the symbol, forming an auditory and visual bond.

### A Tactile Experience

Students explore the connection between the sound and the symbol through tactile activities and manipulative materials. We present numbers in Fact Families, illuminating the interrelated nature of math concepts.

### Incorporating the “Why”

Math requires you to know what to do and why you need to do it. Concept generalization means understanding a concept and applying it to real-life situations – the “why.” The ability to generalize improves when students learn to key in on the words that tell them what is happening and what computation may be needed.

## Why Does NOW!

Math Concept Imagery^{®} Matter?

Moving on to more advanced concepts is difficult unless the student has a firm grasp of beginning math functions. These concepts are essential for functioning in daily life. Here are a few of the many areas of our lives where math is critical:

- Managing money
- Cooking
- Baking
- Calculating distance, time and cost of travel
- Understanding sports
- Sewing
- Decorating or remodeling a home

A strong foundation in math through the NOW! Math Concept Imagery^{®} program enables learners of all ages to better interpret, express, and reason through math problems using a linguistic, conceptually-based system of learning that improves overall comprehension and increases the ability to rationalize and compute.

## What to Expect

## Why NOW! Math Concept Imagery^{®}?

#### Because Math Helps You Manage Life

Having a good grasp of mathematics gives you or your child the tools to manage the tasks of daily living effectively. This program provides skills that empower the student in all daily activities, including diverse areas such as school tasks, shopping and understanding sports.

You can anticipate measurable results that improve over time as the program progresses. Here are a few:

- An improved grasp of foundational math concepts – knowledge of what to do and why to do it
- Improved mental math and operations
- The ability to use applied thinking to interpret, express and reason through problems accurately

## The NOW! Math Effect

The most significant benefit of improved math skills is the confidence and self-esteem boost students experience as they grasp the concepts and use new-found abilities to navigate life better. Whether NOW! Math Concept Imagery^{®} is for you or your child; don’t you owe it to yourself to enroll in this life-changing program.

Transform the way you or your child navigate life. Enroll in NOW! Math Concept Imagery^{®} today for a more confident tomorrow.

## Real Results, Real Stories

Testimonial from a family of a middle school child with dyslexia, after completing the intensive treatment program at The Morris Center in Ocala, FL. After completing NOW! Foundations, NOW! Mental Imagery, NOW! Grammar and Writing, and NOW! Math Concept Imagery^{®}, his academic struggles are now behind him.

*Students must first complete NOW! Foundations before beginning NOW! Mental Imagery.
