Dana has over fifteen years of classroom teaching experience in grade levels from junior high school through junior college. Since 1989 he has been the primary video instructor for the college division of publishers D.C. Heath and Company, Houghton Mifflin, and Cengage Learning.
Credentials are one thing, but fundamental teaching ability is the essential element that makes math come alive. Dana’s teaching style is relaxed and easy to understand. He has a knack for explaining difficult math topics using living room conversation, and in so doing he takes the anxiety out of the most intimidating topics.
Video programs featuring Dana Mosely have been used to help educate tens of thousands of homeschool students. A testament to the effectiveness of the instruction is the fact that only a few students request help each day even though Dana offers his personal assistance to all of the thousands of students using his programs.
Thank you for your program. The other day Bekah said, "Wow, this kind of problem used to really throw me, and it's so easy now!" What a blessing. Bekah enjoys your presentation and you have really helped in her understanding and ability. Again, thank you. God bless you for the work you're doing.
While checking over my daughter's math review today, I could see how much your math has meant to her since switching from another curriculum. Already after two sections of pre-algebra with you, her confidence is soaring.
Thanks to the Chalk Dust math programs, our son recently scored in the 99th percentile in Math on the Stanford achievement test. After using the Chalk Dust Algebra 2 and Precalculus programs, he announced that he loved math. Thank you for sharing your incredible gift of teaching!
Just wanted to say that both of my kids are enjoying math (well, at least they are understanding it and not complaining or bewildered.) They really like Mr. Mosely's teaching style and I find it quite engaging myself. Sometimes my son (studying Algebra II) will call me down to see and hear something funny that Mr. Mosely has said or done. I find it very refreshing and a wonderful relief to see my kids doing their Geometry and Algebra II without my constantly looking for additional resources that would bring a different slant to the way my old curriculum had presented it. They just had such difficulty understanding it. Thank you so much for making a math curriculum that is presented with passion for the topic and is easily understood and even has some funny moments too. It's refreshing! Three cheers for Dana Mosely! God bless you all!
Let me tell you, you have been a real life saver for me. I watch your videos for at least an hour a day and have learned so much more from your videos than I have in class. I just thought you might like to know that you are making a difference in my college education, and that I am really glad that I found your videos. Your videos have helped me understand math unlike any teacher I've had. My grades went south until I discovered your videos and I then proceeded to pass intermediate and advanced algebra without repeating once. I finished my transfer degree last spring term due to your videos, I thank you greatly and you have no idea how much confidence your videos built up in me.
After using your programs, our daughter tested into the highest honors class at her new school, and the school is ranked highest academically in the county. Oh, and by the way, she is the youngest student in her class.
I had my class last night. Showed your videos. Also tried to show some other videos that I had obtained. The students said stop those videos as we want to see more of those that feature you. You were the accepted star. Just wanted you to know that your fine works are helping my students. One student came to me before class that was considering dropping the class. She came up to me afterward and was a different person and said she felt much better. Thank you for doing those videos.
My child is finally saying that he is getting to 'love' math, but only after purchasing your videos.
I am an 11th year teacher, 1st year Calculus AB teacher in Scottsdale USD in Arizona. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your videos, not only as a resource for our students, but also for me as I prepare my lessons. Anyway, I just want to say thank you so much for your excellent presentations! I and my students sincerely appreciate your talent for teaching.
Can I just say, you are such an amazing teacher. Teachers like you are literally one in a million. Thank you so much. You have no idea how much you've helped me with college. Well worth the money.
At the end of my son's 7th grade year, he took the Iowa and CogAt tests. He scored a GE (grade equivalent) in math of 13+. At that time he had completed Basic Math and most of Prealgebra, through 9.2. Thanks for producing a thorough, rigorous, and enjoyable program!
We have home educated our children from the beginning and have 2 in college and 1 in high school. Our two college-age children did great on their SAT's (thanks to their Chalk Dust Math and the SAT prep videos) and ended up getting full scholarships to a small, private college in Kentucky. Now we're going through the high school math program again with our youngest child, who has always struggled with math. Two years ago we did your Basic Math program and for the first time she understood math! Last year she did Prealgebra. Now she is sailing through Algebra I. She understands it and has finally quit telling us she feels stupid! Thank you for making this program so great! Thank you for making it available to the home education community. We will be eternally grateful. God bless you all.
I do not believe there is any rational reason why any student would fail math if they simply tried if they were using your video lessons - your explanations are positively fantastic and a true blessing to any student who is trying.
I've been using Chalk Dust materials the last three years for both Precalculus and Calculus. Last year, I received a perfect score on the SAT Subject Test for Mathematics Level 2, and I also scored quite well on the math sections of the SAT and ACT. Yesterday morning I took the AP Calculus AB exam, and I'm confident I'll receive college credit. I know your teaching played a large part in these successes, so I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you. I rate you among the very best teachers I've ever had. My younger sister, a junior, just finished Chalk Dust Precalculus, and my other sister has enjoyed enjoyed your sixth grade math this year. My mom recommends your materials to everyone. We all agree that you've been one of the single best parts of my high school career as well as my sister's. Again, thank you.
I just wanted to say thank you for this wonderful program. It has really worked wonders with my daughter, who used to dread and hate math. She would always say how bad she was at Math. We have used the Basic Math since late August, and she actually looks forward to every math day! The best thing is that it has given her confidence in her ability to learn math. We have tried many other programs and I am just so thankful to have found this one because it is the only one that has really worked.
After spending HOURS! on the internet reading the reviews, I determined, after reviewing MANY programs, Chalk Dust really had rarely any un-satisfied users. I was leaning the way of Chalk Dust. I borrowed a friends DVD's to see how the learning style fit with my son..WOW! He loved it. As we were watching one of the first lessons, Ifound myself all caught up in it because it was actually making so much sense. After a half hour one of kids said, "Mom, what are you doing, you hate math!". It was just making so much sense I was actually enjoying it. No exaggeration. I am so pleased. So I have decided to switch two of my sons over to Chalk Dust.
We are planning for our daughter's junior year of high school next year. She has completed Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2. Your curriculum has been such a blessing to us.
I have two children--one who graduated from high school in 2003 and a sophomore in high school. I have used Chalk Dust's Pre-algebra, Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II. My oldest daughter is taking Calculus in college and is scoring at 98%. I attribute her success to her excellent foundation in math from Cool Math Guy! Thank you.
Thank you for such a wonderful gift to homeschooling families - we couldn't do it without YOUR teaching ability! Our family started using your math courses eight years ago and have never thanked you for the astounding results. Tony is only 14 and scored quite high on the math portion of the PSAT this year thanks to your program. Colleges are already hounding him! He did this after completing your algebra and geometry courses, and without using the SAT review or doing any other preparation. A much belated and heart-felt THANK YOU from a math challenged homeschooling mom!
I want to thank you for your awesome math program! I used to not like math a whole lot until last year, when I tried out the Algebra II program that Chalk Dust offers. You are an awesome teacher, and I want to tell you that you completely flip-flopped my view of math. It is now one of my favorite subjects!
