An Engaging- Interactive- Successful - Math Guide for Teachers, Parents and Literacy Practitioners

Based on the Orton-Gillingham Approach to Literacy Instruction and the OG Academic Math Training Courses.

  • For some students, mathematics is a road travelled in small steps.
  • A successful multisensory approach leads the student through small increments of understanding toward unifying themes in mathematics.
  • Student’s strengths and needs must be recognized and addressed with built-in “checks for error,” as well as a built-in system for building confidence and competence.
  • The OG interactive, cognitive approach for learning math enables students to develop more effective ways of thinking about math and applying new skills.

The OG Academic Math is an approach to successfully teach students who struggle with math.
The OG Math approach provides a focus on foundational math skills while using visual and interactive demonstrations so that students understand WHY as well as HOW for each math concept and topic. 

Lessons focus on developing essential math skills and fluency while combining continual, ongoing assessment.

This is known as diagnostic prescriptive instruction.

At a time when schools and teachers across the country are looking for ways to help students improve their performance in math, OG Academic Math can bridge the learning gap for students. 

With a focus on in-depth understanding and problem solving, the OG Math curriculum has propelled our students from disappointment to success and confidence in their math education.

Math Success is at hand with OG Academic Math.
