About Ram Materials
RAM Materials provides instructional materials for competitive mathematics (Number Sense, Calculator Applications and Mathematics for UIL, TMSCA, PSIA, and Math League), teaching mathematics, home school mathematics, and general mathematics for grades 4-12.
Leo Ramirez Sr., founder and owner of RAM Materials, has been presenting workshops and writing test materials and instructional mathematics workbooks for Elementary, Middle and High Schools for over 40 years. As a mathematics coach at McAllen High School for 31 years, his teams won 20 team State Championships in Number Sense and Calculator Applications (11 in Calculator Applications and 9 in Number Sense).
I was tutored by Mr. Ramirez for 3 years. His material was invaluable in helping me develop as a UIL competitor. His sessions were very helpful and everything followed a simple to follow, step-wise format. I have won multiple state championships and currently hold the TMSCA record in calculator applications.
I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Ramirez from jr. high through high school. He helped to develop and expand my love of advanced math. His materials and methodology make challenging concepts fun and easy to understand. My family and I attribute my math success (UIL State Champion and TMSCA State Top Gun) to his teaching, guidance, and support. My math success helped me to gain acceptance to schools such as Harvard and Vanderbilt. My math success also led to numerous scholarships to various prestigious universities.

Nicholas Scholl, 3rd grade
Ever since being coached by Mr. Leo, I am always excited to learn new math topics. His method of teaching and the materials he provides make it easy to understand complex mathematics. The workbooks, documents, and practice sheets he writes are very detailed with step by step instructions. Because they are easy to follow, I can even study on my own. His teaching materials have helped me get higher scores in class and in math competitions. Thank
you Mr. Leo!

Mr. Ramirez’s tutoring and his outstanding materials have drastically helped me over the years. I have been taught by him since the sixth grade, and there still hasn’t been a lesson where I didn’t learn something new. His notes and teachings are simple, yet they have taught me advanced math. Thanks to Mr. Ramirez’s guidance, I have accomplished a lot in my TMSCA career. In eighth grade, I placed second in number sense, fourth in calculator, and tied for first in general math with a perfect score. I greatly appreciate Mr. Ramirez’s efforts and I am eager to continue learning from him.
