# Professor B Mathematics

## Need to move slower? Faster? This curriculum adapts!

Posted by **Mollie Shaw** on

Professor B is ideal for both accelerated learners and slower learners.

The textbook and PowerPoint versions are scripted for you to read and interact with the learner. Many of the lessons involve repetitive games that build conceptual understanding as well as mental flexibility around the mathematical idea being presented. The exercises instruct you to practice to the point of facility - ease, confidence, fluency - then move on! You can camp on any lesson for one day or for a week or even longer!
