Every child can succeed in math with the right tools and support.
You want to engage and challenge every child in your class, but with so many different ability levels and individual needs, it’s easier said than done. A standard curriculum is not going to have everything you need to meet the needs of each student. But a quick google or Pinterest search will likely bring you tons of completely unrelated content, or a boring worksheet. Learning and engaging with math is so much more than a worksheet. That’s why I’m here to help.
As a Math Geek Mama member, you get access to engaging and fun resources that encourage kids to dig deeper, make connections and learn the why behind the math they’re learning. All while having fun!
“My class really enjoyed this resource (Build Your Own Amusement Park Project). When it was time to switch subjects there was a lot of complaining!”
Is Your Curriculum Enough?
Have you ever wondered if the math curriculum you’re using includes the key components that your students need for success? Here’s what you should look for in a solid, thorough math curriculum:
It teaches both the why and the how of mathematics
It includes practice with math facts
It includes open-ended challenges
It includes mental math practice
It includes plenty of opportunities for real world application
It includes lots of visual models and representations
If you’re looking at your curriculum and thinking there are some areas of weakness there, I’ve got you covered. Inside membership, you will find lessons, games and other resources to help you round out whatever curriculum you’re using.
Plus, you’ll get access to exclusive training classes to learn how to use your curriculum to it’s greatest potential.
“The greatest benefit to me is both relieving me of creating content and bringing some play back into our math. I also deeply appreciate the playful math content for the older ages.”

Still Have Questions?
Can I purchase bundles separately?
Absolutely! I realize that not everyone will need or want every single resource included in membership, so you are welcome to purchase individual resources in my shop by clicking here. Please note, though, that not all products on the membership site are available for individual purchase.
Are these resources for teachers or parents?
Both! My lessons are designed to be used to teach kids math and have fun doing so. They can be used in the classroom, after school or by homeschooling families.
I don't live in the U.S. Can I still sign up?
You sure can. Simply check out with paypal, and you’re all set.
With so many free resources, why do I need to pay?
While I do strive to offer lots of fun and free activities at MathGeekMama.com, I also have a lot of ebooks and lesson bundles that are not free. However, as a member, you get access to every resource for life, at no additional cost. Plus, premium members can submit custom requests to get exactly what they need.
How do I access the materials?
After signing up, you will be given immediate access to all the resources on the easy to navigate site. Simply search by grade level to find what you need.
Can I cancel my membership if I don't like it?
Yes. While I will be sad to see you go, I want you to be completely satisfied and confident in your purchase. If for some reason it does not meet your expectations, simply request a refund within 30 days of signing up.
I've already purchased some of your lessons. Do I still have to pay for membership?
Yes. If you’ve already purchased some of my resources, think of your membership purchase as a pre-order of more great resources to come. 🙂 In addition, membership includes the option to submit a request, which means I can custom make something for you if you can’t find what you need.
Who is membership NOT for?
Membership is not for everyone. First, it’s not intended for preschool teachers. While some of the Kindergarten materials could be used with PreK kids, there are not preschool specific resources. It is also not for advanced High School teachers. Currently, resources cover topics up to Algebra 1. While there are a few more advanced resources, there’s not a lot at this time. Finally, membership is not for you if you don’t have access to a printer. All content in the site is downloadable pdf files which you will need to print out to use. They are not computer based. If that’s not what you’re looking for, membership isn’t for you.
You Control Your Membership:
If you are not 100% satisfied with the resources inside the membership site, simply email us within 30 days for a full refund. If you are on a month to month plan, you can cancel at anytime (or even pause your subscription if necessary).
What do you have to lose?
You want to be the very best math teacher you can be…
You want every child to leave class excited about math and confident in their abilities…
You want to meet the needs of each individual child, making it accessible for the struggling learners, but at the same time challenging the advanced learners…
This is no easy task, but I am here to help make this a reality.
