JOR-SHERA PRODUCTIONS Releases CD for fun/easy multiplication table learning
Los Angeles, CA - The Educational technology production company JOR-SHERA will release TIMES FACTS (Multiplication Tables Made Fun and Easy!), a rhythmic cassette or CD that promises to help teachers and parents teach students to learn multiplication tables 1 through 12 by using diverse kinds of music.
JOR-SHERA PRODUCTIONS was founded in 1992 to provide learning tools at low cost for educators and students. As its founders are professional educators and musicians, JOR-SHERA''s mission is to provide educational and musical products that facilitate the learning process.
We have been striving towards finding a fun yet effective method of learning math, said Barbara G. Sherrill, co-founder and co-creator of TIMES FACTS, a former music school instructor with over 25 years experience and a teaching credential from the University of Southern California. "Now we have found it. TIMES FACTS provides one of the most powerful musical/math teaching platforms in the industry." Barbara is the composer of many songs, piano compositions, choral works and arrangements.
Jordu Sherrill, co-founder of JOR-SHERA PRODUCTIONS and co-creator of TIMES FACTS, is an instructor of Music and Computer Technology and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Electronic Music and Computer Technology. He is an accomplished musician, having toured with such notables a Reggae singer Pato Banton and the late, great Barry White. He produced the Latin Jazz CD, "Mi Casa,su Casa" and co-produced two smooth jazz CD''s entitled "World House Dance ''Til You Drop,Vol. I" and "Waves." He also produced two singles for Brazilian artists, Sonia Santos and Ana Gazzola. His current project is entitled "The Chromatic Approach to Music", a book that will teach children a different approach to learning music. It is slated to be released in the spring of 2006.
Both Barbara and Jordu work formally and informally as educators in a diverse community. As they share their product, TIMES FACTS, they are gratified to hear the feed back they have received from parents and teachers who have used the product for their children---some at the early age of four. "It''s as simple as learning the ABC''s and is taught using similar approach to the ABC''s of "sing-song", states Jordu. "We teach
Multiplication Tables the same way, using 12 different rhythms and songs for tables 1-12.
Rather than memorizing written tables altogether, TIMES FACTS allows young students to learn in a way that works best for them: learn at their own pace, and learn vital information without stress.
Because each table is treated differently, this is easily done by repetitively listening to catchy jamming'' beats including rap, pop, rhythm and blues, Caribbean and boogie. Using TIMES FACTS, teachers can fully engage their students and hold their attention and interest. Students can listen to TIMES FACTS at home, while traveling, and even while playing, to subtly reinforce the mathematical concepts.
"Without multiplication facts it is almost impossible to feel confident in learning multiplication, division, algebra, calculus, geometry, and trigonometry or even balance a check book. TIMES FACTS gives students just such a tool - knowledge of the multipli-
cation tables", Barbara states.
STUDENTS like TIMES FACTS because they enjoy the rhythms and songs that are in a
fun, hip, lively format.
TEACHERS like TIMES FACTS because it encourages class participation and the repetition which helps students learn. It can be used individually and in groups.
PARENTS like TIMES FACTS because it facilitates learning vital information in a place where their children can be independent such as at home or while traveling or even at birthday parties. (makes a wonderfully useful gift!)
SCHOOLS like TIMES FACTS because the CD or cassette can easily be used by the school or home''s technology.
TIMES FACTS is remarkably affordable compared to the cost of many other mathematical learning tools.
