Rick Fisher was a math instructor for the Oak Grove School District in San Jose, California, for over 31 years. Since graduating from San Jose State University in 1971 with a B.A. in mathematics, Rick has devoted his time to both teaching and developing unique award-winning math materials. As a teacher, each year approximately one-half of his sixth grade students would bypass the seventh grade math program and move directly to a high-powered eighth grade algebra program.
Rick is a winner of the prestigious “Intel Innovations in Teaching Award”. He also won the Glenn W. Hoffmann Exemplary Awards Program for all of Silicon Valley in California.
Rick has developed a highly functional, easy-to-use, and, most importantly, easy-to-understand mathematics teaching system that produces amazing results–results that he shares in his books, DVD’s, and, now, a world-class online instructional program, AmericasMathTeacher.com. These award-winning math materials are based on an exciting, tested teaching strategy that will produce dramatic results for students. Rick has literally transformed the math experience for thousands and thousands of students worldwide.
Through the use of his materials, countless students have improved several grade levels in their math abilities in just one school year. All of his math learning materials can be used successfully with students who are struggling with math or have limited English skills.
