How Do I Use It?
Watch the 5-10 minute video the day before your lesson, print off the lesson plan and tasks and you are ready to teach!
Teachers who have never taught math before have successfully used this resource to make math a favourite subject for their students.Teachers feel a huge amount of job satisfaction seeing their students thriving.
Even experienced teachers find this course extremely valuable because they were never taught math this way; it helps them learn the ‘basics’ again but with better understanding.
Check out the quick overview video directly below to see how it works:
"Using manipulatives during math instruction has helped me reach more of my learners. That moment when a student ‘gets’ a concept that they have struggled for years to understand, is priceless!"
- Jeni Scott, Grade 6 Teacher

Educating Now focuses on the number concepts that have traditionally been taught very abstractly with rules to be memorized and instead teaches the actual concept in a visual, meaningful way.
Here’s an example: we are taught when multiplying decimals to just ignore the decimal, multiply and skip the decimal back in.
Where is the understanding of place value?
Where is the meaning and understanding behind this rule?
Why does it work?
Teaching using Educating Now as a resource will help you answer all these questions.
"You have completely changed my whole view on math inside and outside of the classroom. My classroom has become a lively place to be during math class. Learners are up and moving, actively involved and engaged. I have become very passionate about the shift from math being about a bunch of rules and procedures to students discovering concepts through differentiating instruction and parallel tasks"
- Lisa Pushong, Middle School Teacher
Why Students Get Excited:
Math class becomes engaging, understandable and accessible
It's FUN to apply mathematical knowledge to novel situations
Ah ha moments when children 'get it' and realize they CAN understand math
Ask Your Principal to Pay
We have yet to hear of a Principal denying a funding request for Educating Now.
Educating Now supports teachers in teaching the current curriculum and principals are happy to support this professional development.
For the past 10 years, Nikki has dedicated her professional life to coaching teachers in transforming their math practices and gaining new confidence in their teaching. Through this process teachers also gain confidence in their own mathematical understanding and even learn to love and see the beauty in math.
Nikki is a highly sought after presenter and Professional Development facilitator. Educating Now was born by teachers constantly telling her they need her in their class everyday. This wish is now a reality with lesson by lesson coaching videos and associated resources.
Her passion for math education stems from the transformations she sees in teachers and students when they are engaged, learning conceptually, collaborating, communicating and developing growth mindsets.
Nikki began her career in 2001 and has taught in both Canada and the UK. She discovered the magic of teaching conceptually in 2006 while researching for her Master’s degree in Leadership. Nikki has recently presented at conferences such as the Northwest Mathematics Conference, BCAMT conferences, Tapestry, Surrey Teacher’s Association Conference and is engaged as a consultant with mulitple schools.
Nikki is an energetic speaker who shares the research that she reads voraciously, as well as her own experiences from teaching in the classroom where she puts best-practice strategies into action.
