This math facts program, created and developed by Jan Bedell, PhD, M.ND. can set the stage for math success. Here’s a what a teacher who used this seasoned program in her class: After 18 years of teaching, I finally found a math facts system that works! Even my lower level students flourished. The Rapid Recall System was so easy to use—and it only took seven minutes a day! At the end of the year the test scores proved that the students had retained their math facts. This is a fantastic product!”  - Tanda Trussell West Texas Elementary, Stinnett, Texas Here are the discounts on

ND Tip: Make Math Fun, Fast, and a Lifelong Friend

Add-cover-w-binding-teacher-241x300Little Giant Steps has over twenty years experience in addressing learning issues, especially in math. Jan Bedell, M.Ed., M.ND., has created a program  (Rapid Recall System) that has over ten years of successful experience of turning tears over math struggles into smiles, and most importantly, the child’s confidence soars as they discover they are capable of doing math fast, efficient, and with correct answers! The program is not magic, even though most families think so after seeing the vast changes in their child’s potential develop into academic success. The secret is in the specific Neuro-Educational/Developmental techniques utilized and the key to all Neurodevelopmental Approach Programs is in the frequency, intensity, and short duration!

Suggestion:  The Neurodevelopmental Approach to academics takes the stress out of academic performance (output) by providing lots of information (input).  Have you ever noticed that when you go to check on a child 10-15 minutes after sending them off to do their math, that they are staring off into space or doodling on their paper?  The intensity is GONE!  It takes intensity to get the brain to recognize the importance of information and store it permanently 

Tip #1:  Do not send your child into another room to do an entire page of math operations! Those pages may involve new concepts that may not be permanently stored. The struggle kills the motivation to learn and any enjoyment of learning!  Take the stress, frustration (your and his or hers) and tears out of your child’s math sessions by spending just 10 to 15 minutes on math, twice a day, for the difference is, you do it with them! Just think about it, you have spent that much time in the past just trying to get them back on track, right?  Instead of coaxing them to do something they are not ready for, do every other problem for them while they watch.  When there is a new concept, you will do three problems, and then the child will do one similar problem, and then repeat the process for this new concept.  Once the child understands a concept, you can gradually work back to doing one problem, and then the child does one similar problem.  On all previously learned problems you share them 50/50.  Math gets done quickly with great input, input, input!  Math struggles are then a thing of the past.


Tip# 2:  There is a big difference between understanding math operations and the rote memory of math facts.  Children that really know their math facts and don’t have to rely on the time consuming process of counting in the air or on their fingers, enjoy math more.  These children can zip through math operations pages with ease.  They experience fulfillment of correct answers instead of red circles on their page indicating wrong answers that have to be revisited.  Bluh!  Consider doing a Free Math Proficiency Assessment to find your child’s current math facts proficiency (email with Assessment in the subject line).  Give a one minute test as described in the instructions, submit the results and get recommendations as to what can make math easier for your child.

The Rapid Recall System takes from 7-9 minutes a day!  Scroll down on the Rapid Recall Page to hear from those who’ve tried it! Have a blessed day!

7 to 9 Minues A Day for Math Basics Success


Little Giant Steps founder, Jan Bedell, a homeschool mom, certified teacher, special needs provider and nurturer has not only blessed her own daughter with learning challenges, but she’s blessed thousands of those children who hate math. Jan’s genius could be seen when we visited a school that have instituted her program, RAPID RECALL SYSTEM.  Here are a few clips we took while at the school:

1. Rapid Recall Visual Input Session                  2.  Rapid Recall Speed Drill

This program is considered a curriculum for Kindergarten through 1st Grade, then it’s used as a supplement.  A middle school asked for our help. They have been using it for two years to help students raise their math skills and test scores.   Here’s more information.

“My daughter had a very difficult time ’getting’ her math facts. We tried a lot of different approaches but nothing worked. Still searching, we tried the Rapid Recall System. Somehow, she began to know her facts before we studied them! I am so impressed and thankful for Rapid Recall. I recommend it to everyone with elementary students!” – S. Phillips, Houston, Texas

“In 2007 we adopted an 11-year old boy from Kazakhstan. His prior circumstances limited his exposure to math. When we started using the Rapid Recall System, the light came on! He eagerly whizzed through addition, subtraction, and multiplication. He felt so smart when he progressed to the next group of facts. We are halfway through the division module and his confidence has never been higher! Thanks so much! – Heather Smith

Rapid Recall System
In just 7 min. a day (9 min. for multiplication), children are exposed to the same 5 math facts 14 times a day. They hear, see, say and write these facts for one week.  Only two exposures involve output in which the child says the answer, 12 exposures involve input in which the child is given the answer. The teacher is only involved for 2 one minute sessions each day, or you can use the computer disc for the visual input sessions (sold separately). Need more information…

RAPID RECALL SYSTEM ~ Four Star Rating & Review

“How I wish this had been around when I was a struggling math student!”

So says, Sarah Andrews, curriculum reviewer for Home Educating Family. Here’s the rest of what she has to say:

Math and I do not always get along well. I was one of those kids who still counted on my fingers in middle school. Eventually, I did learn how to add without the assistance of my fingers, largely due to my mom’s insistence that I must learn my math facts. I was determined that my kids would learn basic math facts from the beginning. That turned out to be easier said than done. Then, I tried the Rapid Recall System from Little Giant Steps. How I wish this had been around when I was a struggling math student!

More on the review…….  The system consists of the Teacher Play Book that includes a Play-by-Play Instruction Disc and Audio Input CD, one Student Practice Book, and flash cards. The Visual Input and Bonus Daily Review Disc is available separately for $15.77, but is not required for the program. The Rapid Recall System is available for addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division facts. The Play-by-Play Instruction Disc and Visual Input and Bonus Daily Review Disc both require a computer with optical drive to play. The Audio Input CD only requires a regular CD player. Each student will need their own copy of the Student Practice Book. Additional copies are available for $17.77 each.

The stack of material used for Rapid Recall can seem a bit intimidating at first, but it really is a simple program. I recommend that you read the Teacher Play Book and watch the Play-by-Play Instruction Disc right from the start. They explain the different steps of the program and how to implement it. The first two weeks are different from the rest of the system, and cover math facts that include 0 or 1. Detailed instructions for the first two weeks are included. Week 3 and on follow a simple pattern:

  1. Listen to the Audio Input CD track for the week.
  2. Visual input session using either the flashcards, or the Visual Input and Bonus Daily Review Disc.
  3. Discovery game using the Audio Input CD and a worksheet from the Student Practice Book.
  4. Speed drill using a worksheet from the Student Practice Book.
  5. A second visual input session.
  6. Optional review using either the flashcards, or the Bonus Daily Review Disc.

Each of these steps should only take one to three minutes to complete. However, they should not be done all at once, but rather spread out throughout the day.

What I like best about the Rapid Recall System:

  • The same basic system is used for learning addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts. Using the same format means that my kids can go through all four systems without having to adjust to a different teaching style. It also means that I don’t have to learn how a new system works!
  • This system can be used in either a classroom or homeschool setting.
  • It is a simple and easy to implement system. Despite the fact that it sounds rather complicated at first, once I watched the teacher disc and read the teacher book, it all makes sense. Breaking it up throughout the day also sounds difficult at first. I find it easiest to do one step between each subject. That breaks it up sufficiently, and makes it easy to remember to get all of the sessions in each day.
  • It really does work! I used Rapid Recall with my first grader, and my third grader. Both of them enjoy the short sessions. Most importantly, they retained the facts that they learned!

What I didn’t like as well about the Rapid Recall System:

  • The Teacher Play Book on its own doesn’t give me a clear enough picture of how the system worked. I had to watch the presentation on the Play-by-Play Instruction Disc before I understood exactly how to implement it.
  • The Audio Input CD tracks include some odd sound effects throughout each track. The reason for this is not made clear, and though my kids don’t mind them, my husband and I find them a bit annoying.

The Rapid Recall System is aimed at elementary students, but you could easily use it with students of any age who are struggling to learn their math facts. Even though I would like the instructions in the Teacher Play Book to be a bit clearer, I still find the program very easy to use. My kids enjoy it, and I am certainly pleased with the results! I will not hesitate to recommend this for any family on the market for a program to help their child learn math facts quickly and easily.

Rapid Recall System ~ It’s Amazing!

 Experience Each Module (+, -, x, ÷)

If you ever wanted to see your child, teen, or even adults become confident about their math skills, then give them the opportunity to permanently secure the basics (math-facts) in the brain by using the fun, and confidence-building Rapid Recall System.  Every part of this program addresses not only basic mathematical requirements, but it is crafted with neuro-pathway building techniques.  Input is king with this program. It takes a total of 7 minutes a day! (9 minutes for multiplication) to create a long-term solution for those struggling or hating math.  Little Giant Steps founder Jan Bedell, the Brain Coach® and creative force with the Rapid Recall System, has over 20 years of teaching experience and has specialized in the area of Neuro-Education.  This program has been serving her private clients since 2005, but as schools were finding more and more students coming to school with poorly developed processing skills, short-memory deficits, and disorganized brain function; they requested our services.

Jan took on the challenge to bring this wonderfully successful math facts program to all. There are public and private schools utilizing this system, because it works!  There are home school families, and regular families who want their child to succeed in math who use it, because it works!  It works for students who are gifted, typical, and challenged. Why is it so successful?  Because it works at the lower levels of the brain where organization occurs, it stimulates the brain to create new and more efficient neuro-pathways.  With greater speed and accuracy of the connections between the brain and body, the visual, auditory, tactile abilities are improved.  Therefore, learning becomes easier!  Order NOW!
