My daughter has been a Spirit of Math student since Grade 2. She is now in Grade 7. The experience and education she receives at this program has blown us away. For a girl to love being called “the human calculator” or “math geek” is a testament to the confidence and skills she has gained through this program. She is talking about pursuing a math/science program in high school and loves the challenging work she receives.

Looking Back at Drills

Spirit of Math multiplication and division drills were initially birthed in a grade 7 classroom out of necessity when Charles Ledger realized that students were not fluent in basic arithmetic computation. Consequently, it was difficult for his students to understand new concepts and for them to move quickly through the curriculum. His focus was to develop challenging drills that had a fast pace, a specific and quantifiable goal, and consequently, drills that were fun – not tedious.

These drills alone were so successful as a teaching tool that Charle’s wife, Gwen and their daughter Kim developed the drills further, to meet the needs of students in the younger grades. Seeing the evidence of incredible changes in students, the Spirit of Math team has added onto the drills, introducing a variety of experiences.
