What's at stake?

Hello, my name is Robert Ahdoot. I'm the founder of YayMath.org, and the creator of this course.

Try asking anyone you know, "What's your math story?" Then watch as their faces either light up, contort with upset, or perhaps become thoughtful or reflective. Everyone has a math story.

Think of your math story for a moment. How does it play out in your thoughts, and what's the best word that captures how your math story makes you feel?

Students everywhere are creating their math stories, right now.

A positive learning experience ripples throughout our lives.

Learning is among the most fulfilling of our lives' experiences. Students deserve to be engaged and inspired. To laugh along with goofy class jokes. To feel validated because they have the same question as someone else in the room. This is the mission: to offer students a gratifying math experience.

Indeed, students need to learn math now, for their current coursework. But the stakes of this moment extend far after their math courses are behind them. Students carry with them both positive and negative memories of learning... for the rest of their lives. Decades from now, they shouldn't be saying, "UGH, I'm just no good at math." They could be saying, "You know I really enjoy math; it's all kinda like a puzzle."

It's no secret that their relationship with math now impacts the rest of their lives. Their career choices, self-esteem, and even feeling comfortable while talking numbers, or while handling their finances.

How we feel while we learn is so critical.

Why Yay Math works, by Aubree, age 16

With mom's blessing, Aubree was kind enough to share her thoughts about why she loves learning with Yay Math.

Robert Ahdoot

Robert Ahdoot began his teaching journey more than a decade ago as a classroom math teacher. Throughout that time, his personal mission was to explore every specific way to reach his students. He saw firsthand how learning ignited when he connected to them as people. When in such an elevated space, any prior feelings of shutdown they had experienced vanished. One mental note led to several, which led to a living and growing teacher playbook. Through years of dedication and focus on student connection, his classes became fun, lively, and positive beacons of learning for both him and his students.

Yet within so elevated a space, he and his students felt a restlessness. It was the dawn of the video era, and they knew that what they were stumbling upon something could truly benefit others, if they could only experience it themselves. So out came an impromptu camcorder perched atop a precarious stack of books, and the Yay Math movement was born.

YayMath.org is a free online collection of math video lessons, filmed LIVE in Robert's classroom, featuring authentic student interaction, that's both fun and emotionally connective. It has given life to now iconic, full costume math characters, like the "MathemaGyptian" and "MathemaChicken." Since its inception, Yay Math videos are viewed at a staggering 2 million minutes per month.

Yay Math's online proliferation has provided Robert the opportunity to give multiple TEDx talks on conquering math anxiety, speak at schools about how to permanently achieve inspired learning, create comprehensive online courses for homeschool families to use, and pen his debut book, One-on-One 101: The Art of Inspired and Effective Individual Instruction. It's the complete guide to connecting to kids, and it has been adopted by multiple school administrations as a blueprint for cultivating transcendent student-teacher learning relationships.

Robert lives with his wife and two daughters in California.

Here's what you can expect:

  • You don't need a textbook. The curriculum is fully self-contained.
  • The program is complete, covering a full year's worth of Geometry materials.
  • It's easy and instant to implement. Access can begin minutes from now.
  • The interface is mobile friendly, across all devices, and all browsers.
  • All answer keys provided, by Robert's hand, written out step-by-step, using intuitive coloring, with a human and sometimes light-hearted touch.
  • Yay Math's lessons are the only videos filmed in front of a live classroom, with real student interaction. When you watch, you feel like you're right in that room, sharing in the class's fun vibe. For example, meet the "Mathema-CHICKEN"...

Even chickens need love?

  • Get your time back. You no longer need to painstakingly find/create content, sift through the internet ocean, or constantly vet sources. All the work is already done for you, at a high quality level.
  • Any negative relationship towards math will be turned around. Ever heard a student laughing while learning math? It ignites your heart.
  • Best of all, students, parents, and teachers simply LOVE it. It's the way learning ought to be.

Let's just say it: it's time to stop subjecting our students to some of the dreadful learning practices of the past.

No more learning straight from the book, or from emotionless lectures. They only alienate students and stop learning cold. Every student, no matter where they are, deserves to have a high-quality math experience. To smile while learning.

"Robert, thank you so much for putting this Geometry Curriculum together. As a homeschooling mom of six, I have made use of your Yay Math videos for years. It was a little hard to admit that my children liked you better than me - but they had so much fun learning from you. Your enthusiasm for learning is definitely contagious. The curriculum has been such a welcomed addition to our home school. It is so easy to use, for both student and teacher! My two sons that are currently using it are learning so much and having a good time doing it. We are hoping for similar programs in other courses. Thanks again for a terrific product!"

Frequently Asked Questions

Who exactly is this for?
The program is designed for math teachers, homeschool families, or independent students.

For teachers, your account gives you immediate access to a treasure trove of materials. The program works as an all-in-one online curriculum that's at your full disposal. You can use it to fuel your day's lessons, showcase videos as needed, and assign both online-based or written practice work. Every lesson plan is entirely done for you, including practice tests, chapter tests, and all hand-written step-by-step answer keys. All materials are also instantly downloadable for you to print/post.

Homeschool families use this platform as a comprehensive, end-to-end online course. Students jump right in and learn, section by section.

Last but not least, independent students use this course for a variety of reasons (e.g. to build necessary skills for a college course, to prep for a standardized test, or for an upcoming career change.) Reasons for obtaining this program are as unique as people themselves. How about parents who retain access to the course materials, for whenever their children need immediate support in a high school or college class? Or grandparents who use this program to bolster their own understanding, so that they may be active participants in their grandchildren's education? Just spectacular.
How long do I have access?
You have two options: one year access, or lifetime access.

The one year plan gives you full access for 12 months, across all devices you own. Or, for the cost of two years, it can be yours for life. This is ideal for teachers, or for homeschool families with multiple children. The lifetime option permanently maintains access for you, or for anyone you know who needs it. Even years from now.

Bonus offer for lifetime access: the editable files (in MS Word) are also available upon request to robert "at" yaymath "dot" org.
What if the course is not to my liking?
The spirit of this transaction is to fulfill you. Thus if you are unsatisfied with your purchase, please feel free to reach out within the first 30 days, to get a full refund.
Is the curriculum Core Core aligned?
100% of the topics within the Common Core State Standards are covered by this program. However, the topics are not specifically listed under each formalized code. Meaning, when you get to the section on "The Pythagorean Theorem", it'll be called, "The Pythagorean Theorem". It won't be called, "CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.8.G.B.6".
As a teacher, may I pick and choose parts of the program to supplement my own?
Absolutely. This program is clearly categorized by chapter and section, named exactly the way the books name them. So you can grab practice packets here and there, give online quizzes here and there, etc. And of course, you could simply use this program exclusively, as the course covers what is traditionally regarded as a full school year of Geometry.
Is there a book the program is modeled after?
The Glencoe Geometry books serve as the chapter outlines, for the order and names of each topic. The majority of math textbooks all bear the same content, as they have for decades.
Is there any formal high school or college credit given for completing the course?
No. The course serves either as rocket fuel for teachers already teaching their classes, or as the engine itself for homeschool families looking for the right learning experience for their kids. At the conclusion of this course, students receive a personally authenticated certificate of completion. You may choose to pass the certificate along to any educational institution, as you deem appropriate.
Are final exams included?
Yes. For both semesters, including answer keys.
If I want multiple students to each have access, are group licensing rates available?
Yes. To make arrangements, please contact robert "at" yaymath "dot" org with the number of students, and kindly include any pertinent information.
I have another question. May I reach out?
Of course. Yay Math is a family. Please reach out and connect, robert "at" yaymath "dot" org.

How have you been using the program?
"Yay Math Geometry has been implemented as a supplement to our current curriculum. Last year I used videos only, and this year I have used the videos plus the practice and chapter tests (those are done perfectly as a adaptation from the ones from the book.)"

What's it like for your students?
"It's like having a team teacher come in to present the concepts in a similar, and usually in a more fun way."

What's the learning experience like in the class?
"The learning experience is mainly from sensing the positive vibes from Robert and his students.... it helps my students think that maybe Geometry can be a fun class sometimes!"

What are your students saying?
"He is like you, but younger and funnier."
"Do those kids [the students in the videos] actually like Geometry?"

What is it like "to be you" (the teacher) these days?
"It's nice to use technology on a daily basis... we've come long way from my 'chalkboard days' back in the 1990's!"
