(1) Videotaped Lectures
For most people viewing a lecture is easier to
internalize than reading a traditional textbook. Our videos are in lock-step with textbook material.
(2) Gateways to Mathematics Textbook
Even with new technology, there are people who learn best by reading. If this is the case, you
can read the textbook which is available on our site in pdf format. Written material is presented in the form of a
series of connected Illustrative Examples. The solution of each example, along with enrichment commentary, accompanies
GTM Study Guide
The GTM Study Guide gives you a chance to see if you have internalized what you have seen and / or
The final component of our arithmetic course is a series of slide shows developed by Herb Gross
and Rick Medeiros that can be used as an alternative or supplement to the text and videos. By adding animation to
mathematical concepts, they add a unique dimension to learning.
The videotaped lectures
were produced in 1985. Since that time, Herb has refined the material in the videos; these changes are reflected in the
Powerpoint presentations. Our approach to learning arithmetic, while very logical and user friendly, is not a "quick
fix". If you have the patience and commitment to learn arithmetic in a meaningful way that will be easy for you to
internalize then this is the course for you! You are now prepared to start the course so...study hard and have fun!
