The Framing Square can help teach math ranging from Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry. Framing square math is visual math. It’s good to see the math at work. That’s why we’ve made this series of videos. Hopefully, they’ll give you an idea of the skills that can be taught, how they can be demonstrated and why this technique is different than the way math usually gets taught.
You can find many similar exercises in the Framing Square Math Book.
