Great idea for the doorways of math classrooms! 
If your floor can handle it, what a great way to teach the degrees in angles!

Customer question of the week

Tracy asks: Hope this email finds you doing well. Last year I ordered item #1001 the Rocket Math CD.  I would like to order one more.  I can't find this on the website.  Is this something we are still able to purchase? 

Dr. Don answers: 
Hello Tracy,
        Yes, I am well, thanks.  Hope you're looking forward to this school year.
        We changed our business model on June 1st.  Instead of the $65 to $95 cost for a CD or a download file we are offering a $29 subscription (item #2000) to get the four basic operations.  It is an annual fee.  The subscription access gives you all the same 400 pages, but laid out in an easy-to-see and easy-to-use format. We also improved the pages in 2015, as a number of people let us know that the 2013 black-on-gray format was hard to copy and used a lot of ink. (See the picture above).  All the other programs I have made since including Rocket Writing for Numerals, Factors, Skip Counting, Integers, etc are included for $20 more as item #2001 the Universal subscription for $49), which just happens to be the minimum amount for a purchase order.      
       Thanks for being a Rocket Math user!  Oh, any teacher who has Rocket Math (either their own or their school's lifetime license) is able to purchase the subscription for $25 off by using the coupon code "IhaveaLifetimeLicense" when they order (see below).  That would bring the cost of the basic subscription access down to $4 for someone who already had purchased a lifetime license.
We trust you and rely on your honor.  If you previously purchased a lifetime license (or your school did), use this coupon code to access a Rocket Math Basic subscription for only $4 for the year.    

Lifetime License holders take $25

off either subscription (#2000 or #2001)

What's new with Rocket Math?
Teaching Integers with rules.

The Rocket Math Integers program teaches students a systematic way to solve these difficult problems.
Here's how they practice: Begin by reading the problem.
Step 1
: Determine the starting number, mark it.
Step 2
: Identify which of the four processes is happening in this problem:
Adding a positive, subtracting a positive, subtracting a negative or adding a negative.
Step 3
: The student should say the right rule that applies to the process.
Rule 1: Go up when you add a positive number OR subtract a negative number.
Rule 2: Go down when you subtract a positive OR add a negative number.

Step 4
: Determine whether to go up or down on the number line.
Step 5
: Determine how far and make the bumps from the starting number going in the right direction the right number of bumps.
Finally, the student should look at where he/she ended up on the number line and fill in the answer to the problem.   
How to get parents to help you.
If students practice math facts a couple of times a day throughout the year, they will never forget them! Parents will help you if you give them the tools, which you can easily do with Rocket Math. Start with a letter to parents telling them what you are doing. We have included a two page parent letter from Dr. Don on our subscription website.  We also have a one-page letter in Word that you can edit and make your own. The letter is a good start for parents to know how to practice.
