What is the Program that allows School Principals and Teachers to Understand the Generic, Bare Facts Concepts of Math Quickly and Easily?
The program title is Math 2002'. It consists of two parts. These are:
1. Algebra Tutor, and
2. Invitation to Mathematics
Algebra Tutor is a 10-lesson video and book presentation that provides School Principals and Teachers with an overview of generic, bare facts, concepts of algebra in a plain, common sense, way. Algebra Tutor explains central ideas of algebra, in an easily understood, uncomplicated way. It explains things that math teachers need to know in order to hold the interest of their students. Algebra Tutor answers questions like:
What is x?
What is a polynomial?
What is factoring?
Why do algebraic expressions have to be rational?
Why do I need the commutative, associative and distributive laws of algebra?
and many other algebra and geometrical concepts.
Invitatiton to Mathematics is a 7-lesson video and book presentation that provides School Principals and Teachers with an overview of generic, bare facts, concepts of college Prep Math. Invitatiton to Mathematics explains, in an easily understood, uncomplicated way, things that math teachers need to know in order to hold the interest of their college prep students. Invitatiton to Mathematics answers questions like:
Why do we study math?
What is the suggested way to learn math?
What mathematical subject will help me understanding college math most?

What is the fundamental idea behind calculus?
How do I perform the basic calculus operations?
and many other college prep math concepts students hunger to understand.
Invitation to Mathematics is a state-of-the-art educational overview program that extracts the simple, common sense, ideas out of the other complicated college prep math programs and explains the basic, central, generic, or inherited concepts to you in a plain, easily understood, uncomplicated, bare facts way. Invitation to Mathematics does not use “time wasting” problems to keep college prep students busy. Only enough problems are solved to bring forth the basic ides behind the concepts concepts enunciated. Thus, for the first time, you will be able to attain an outstanding knowledge of mathematics without having to attend a time consuming, demanding college math course.
School Principals use Invitation to Mathematics because it directs them to a made-simple way to get a superior math background which provides them with the necessary knowledge to show teachers the way to help students elevate their math academic levels. Through the use of the most advanced developments in professional education programs School Principals are able determine the direction to take to get teachers to improve their explanations of underlying mathematics concepts.
Invitation to Mathematics explains math in a made-simple way. It is guaranteed to provide you with a clean, authoritative explanations of college prep math. This permits the School Principal to actually follow the progress of the student's understanding of math in the classroom. It permits the School Principal to know what the student is supposed to learn, how it is to be presented in class, and how well the students are actually understanding and learning the math lessons. As a direct consequence of this, it turns the control of the math learning to the School Principal and out of the hands of the teachers whom the Principal has essentially no classroom control. Thus, the School Principal is able to direct the action of where to take the students.
With Invitation to Mathematics the School Principal is, for the first time, given the control and ability to actually lift the academic level of the students in her/his math classes and. Therefore, to elevate the rank, standing, of her/his school. A School Principal who does not understand math is like a construction site manager who doesn't understand how a bullding is put together.
