"Mr. Marcario, in 8th grade you told my math class to understand instead of memorizing because if we understood we would always know. It's one of the most important things I think I could ever learn." – Frankie Bates, student
"In his teaching, [Mr. Marcario] likes to incorporate humor and life lessons with problem solving. He's always looking for new approaches to teach math. By discouraging memorization, he encourages his students to visualize and understand basic concepts." – Laura Sotomayor, student
"What is most amazing about Mr. Marcario is his ability to take extremely difficult concepts and make them both comprehensible and enjoyable for his students. My husband helps all our four children with their math homework and said that this year, Alexis covered several years of mathematics and developed a real love for the subject." – Lisa Kende, parent
"His willingness to constantly search for new approaches and methods to engage students in meaningful ways was a model for those who avoided change ... His creativity enables him to provide abundant opportunities for students to see the role that mathematics plays in the world around them." – Dr. Jean Clark, Principal, Syosset Central School District
"Domenico ... is an expert in his knowledge of national and state standards, student assessments, instructional methods, and materials. He applies this knowledge by creating an exciting learning environment in his classroom, which results in his students consistently achieving high levels of mastery in mathematics. Domenico effectively uses a variety of teaching strategies to differentiate instruction in heterogeneously grouped classrooms." – Dr. Anthony Singe, Superintendent, Locust Valley Schools

SurpriseI Really like these cards!
“I was surprised to find I really like the cards! The reason I was surprised is because there are so many bad materials and games out there that are touted as ‘learning materials for children’. The cards seem thoughtfully developed and developmentally appropriate and sequenced. In addition they are designed in a usable and attractive manner.”
