Catherine Gauvreau has been homeschooling her five children since 2001. While teaching her children, Catherine has developed a love and understanding of math which was absent in her own education. Catherine, her husband Don, and their children especially love playing math games throughout the week to reinforce the concepts. Catherine stays active in her church, is a graphic designer, and amateur photographer and finds the greatest joy in her family and homeschooling her children. She can be reached at Catherine@RightStartMath.com.

Addition, Subtraction, and Multiplication, OH MY!
Memorizing 390 math facts is exhausting. Sadly, whatever is learned by rote needs frequent review to be retained. On the other hand, games are fun and exciting, games provide practice for the facts, and games become an application for the information! Children of various abilities can play together. Join us for some fun as we view addition, subtraction, multiplication games.
