I offer a full money back guarantee because I stand behind my lessons and I am fully confident in them. I am confident because I use them when I teach and thousands of teachers around the world have also used them with great success. That being said, if you use the lessons found on Make Math More and they do not increase the engagement in your class and you honestly feel like your students did not gain anything from them then email me at the email address at the top of the page and I will return your money to you even if you already downloaded lessons (requests must be made within 30 days of purchase). I process all refunds within 24 hours so buy with confidence.
I’ve learned the lesson of simplicity, when a child plays, they teach themselves that a simple object can become the most important thing, for it can become almost anything. As we grow older, we look at the more elaborate, the more “glitzy”, the more intricate, as being the best of the best. A child learns that a simple object IS the best of the best. We need to strip away the glitz, the hype, the coverings to find that we already have the best of the best, right in front of us. I remember Cinderella when the mice are transformed into the beautiful horses for her carriage – its in how you look at the simple that defines how you look at the glitz.
Psychologist Sheldon Cohen of Carnegie Mellon University gave subjects nasal drops containing a cold virus; those who reported the greatest diversity of social ties were four times less likely to develop colds than those reporting the least diversity. But the quality of your relationships is just as important, according to Uchino’s research. He recorded the blood pressure of 88 women in a stressful situation (preparing to give a speech) and found that readings spiked less when a close friend was there to offer encouragement. Researchers speculate that the stress associated with weak social support sets off a cascade of damaging reactions. Knowing your friends have your back can help prevent such responses, Cohen says.
