Would you teach BASKETBALL out of a book?
bringing math to life...

children are locked out of the

21st century

if they don't understand fractions.

 


Washington spent $10,000,000 to study the problem, HAMMER spent 25 YEARS to solve it.
"If you don't understand fractions it's nearly impossible for you understand algebra, geometry, physics, statistics, chemistry.
It closes a lot of doors for children." -Dr. Bob Siegler Carnegie Mellon, Professor of Cognitive Psychology Center for Improving the Learning of Fractions
Today is the greatest school day I’ve ever had in my life. — Sam, 5th grade student

HAMMER MATH CURRICULUM
rich content engaging activities intuitive design
Teaching fractions is what we do. Hammer Math goes beyond the textbook to engage young minds by making math relevant, experiential and fun.
Hands-On Lessons [Real-World Math] The perfect solution to help students see the math.
The foundation of Hammer Math is built on helping students develop a deep understanding of fraction fundamentals. By challenging students through engaging, hands-on activities, Hammer Math strives to reach every kind of learner. After fractions, students have fun learning about area and perimeter through out-of-the-box methods. Now, they’re ready to learn architectural design. 5th graders stretch their imagination when they learn how to draw to quarter-inch scale, creating a 3-dimensional scale model home and designing their 6,000 square foot dream home.
The Big Inch [Success is at Hand] Patented colored blocks show you what mere numbers can't.
The Big Inch is a powerful learning tool and the only math manipulative in the world that combines measurement and fractions, while allowing a student to physically apply the algorithms of fractions. Its patented design allows students to see numeric value, size, distance, relative size and space, and groups. It's kinesthetic and visual learning at its finest.
Video Classroom [Amazing Simplicity] Our videos go where textbooks can't. Step inside the math with Hammer's on-demand videos. Designed for classroom instruction, our video series articulates foundational fraction concepts simply and clearly. Our goal is to help students “see” the math through virtual representation of the algorithms. Hammer’s videos are "finely tuned" to say things just-right and to reduce learning anxiety.
Smartboard App [Interactive Practice] Drill down with an interactive version of The Big Inch.
Retention is key. Two important components to retention are understanding the meaning behind the math and then practicing it. The Hammer Smartboard App makes drilling fractions fun and interactive. Modeled after The Big Inch, the App allows teachers and students to work together on the same patented, powerful tool.
Hammer Tools [Teaching Assistance] The blueprints you need to guide your class with ease.
Your lesson plans, classroom visual presentations, downloadable teacher’s guides, & worksheets are accessible in one virtual place. Designed by teachers for teachers to help deliver a smooth, multi-dimensional learning experience with ease and flexibility. Whether your learners are auditory, kinesthetic or visual, our online support content will help you to consistently create the optimal learning experience.
