Cassidy Cash is a math educator, homeschool mom, author, and speaker. For over 12 years Cassidy has been the tutor schools and educators call in when they have students who are failing math. Over the years of helping failing math students what she came to find is that most of the students were not failing math because of any learning disability or cognitive learning gap. Instead, what she discovered is that the majority of those students needed someone to explain the math in terms they could understand—to use real world activities and demonstrations to make the math come alive. Once the explanation was given in terms the student related to personally, almost all of Cassidy’s students return to their math classes to achieve A’s and B’s in their classes. Seeing that there were many students who needed this kind of help, but too many to be able to work with them each personally, Cassidy created her blog, http://www.cassidycash.com , to share with other tutors, parents, students, and educators the methods she had discovered to help students succeed in math. She also founded the company, Have Fun Learning, to provide active education lesson plans that bring science-lab type activities to the math class. Her most recent book, “9 Myths about High School Math and the truth that brings peace to your kitchen table” is available as an ebook on Amazon.com. Cassidy lives in Birmingham, AL with her husband, Tim, and their two sons.
