I am so frustrated with math! We did Singapore up through 1/2 a year of Discovering Math Core 7 and then switched to Saxon 8/7. We are now 1/2 through Saxon Alg I and every test lately is a D or E. My son hates math now even though he has amazing number sense. I feel like we should stick it out this year but maybe switch next year??? I like the spiral approach but the problems are so fussy--meaning negative exponents in a rational expressions, etc. I know that he has a better grasp on neg exponents than any students did when I taught in public school. However, it is demoralizing to continue to get these low test grades. We are using My Fathers World guide on which problems to assign--maybe that is not a good schedule to follow??? Does Saxon Alg 2 get less "fussy"? Should I go with an easier curriculum so that he doesn't hate math so and feels success when testing.

Any advice/recommendations?

Thanks
