What makes My Dear Aunt Sally different than all of the other math apps available?
My Dear Aunt Sally is different because it was created by a renowned educator with educators in mind. Ron Larson, Ph.D. has been developing resources for teachers for over forty years. The Big Ideas middle school math series is a researched-based program developed using the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice and is the only program to offer dual and accelerated pathways.
