The Framing Square integrates a range of foundational math skills. With one tool, students can use their hands, eyes, and mind to progress through arithmetic, fractions, decimals, Geometry, Algebra, and Trigonometry. The same mind and hands, using the same familiar tool, makes progress and skill attainment comfortable, logical, and useful.
“In this workbook, Joe Youcha has accomplished what a school bus-load of textbooks often fail to do: Provide the visceral experience of math coming to our senses through the good work of our hands. For many of us, there is no better way to find success with numbers.”
–Jim Tolpin, Best Selling Woodworking Author, Founder Port Townsend School of Woodworking
“Finally a resource that I can use with all of my students regardless of their age or math abilities. I’ve led these hands on exercises with elementary school age children all the way up to adult mentors who are finally learning ‘real’ math. Framing Square Math helps me differentiate my classroom lessons for all types of learners. I can’t count the number of students who after finally comprehending a challenging concept asked me why everyone didn’t teach math this way.”
–Matt Cupples, Career and Technical Education Teacher, Kenmore Middle School, Arlington, VA
“It is a well-written manual that takes complex, intimidating concepts and allows the ‘kinesthetic learner’ apply ‘hands-on’ practices to solve commonly found technical math issues. Joe applies the principles of ‘learning by doing’! Easier learned, remembered better.”
–Joe Weisling, Education Administrator, The Southeast Wisconsin Carpentry Training Center (Retired)
