## Brenda Barnett, founder of Singapore Math Live

**Brenda Barnett earned a BS in Mathematics from the University of Oklahoma and then taught high school math, including AP Calculus, in Texas public schools. When God began blessing Brent and Brenda with children, she was able to become a stay-at-home mom. In 2000, the Barnetts decided to begin homeschooling, and the journey began. Now there are four Barnett offspring, two are in college and two are still being homeschooled.**

In 2013, Brenda realized that the technology existed that would allow her to teach high school classes from her own home and she founded High School Math Live which offers live and interactive online classes including Pre-Pre-Algebra through Honors Calculus II.

In 2015, after completing the Primary Mathematics curriculum with each of her four children, it occurred to Brenda that she could use the same technology to create a video support program that would make it possible for more families to use Singapore Math curriculum with their children. This fit right in with her passion to help homeschooling families to maximize math potential and Singapore Math Live was born.

After 28 months and 949 video recordings, the support for the Primary Math (US edition) levels 1-6 is finished! There are videos that instruct the students, videos that support the parent, and solutions recordings so you’ll never be stumped by a word problem. These recordings, along with a syllabus that breaks the material into 34 weekly assignments, make up the support program that enables parents to provide their children with the very best foundation in elementary math education.

During 2019 and 2020, Brenda created support for Dimensions Math® 7 and 8. The instruction recordings teach each lesson in the textbook and the solutions recordings provide a visual / verbal explanation of every problem in the Textbook and the Workbook. The support also includes a schedule, notes for each chapter to help parents decide how much to assign, whether calculators should be used, etc. Also, SML provides a test and key for each chapter.
