Circle Math is our unique way to teach all operations.  It is the process of breaking up a large problem into many small problems, solving each small problem, and adding the results.

In multiplication the guiding rule for breaking up large numbers to multiply is the Distributive Property.  This book uses colorful drawings and blocks to teach this very important property. Understanding the Distributive Property of Multiplication is fundamental to algebra.  Not understanding it is one of the major reasons students fail in algebra. By using our math rogram, student will not only be able to solve large multiplication problems, they will understand how the general idea works.  They will then be able to apply it to the general algebraic form later.
