  1. Can you set up the sets your youngest plays with on a bookshelf in the living area. It would be a sort of display that your youngest can still touch and use, but would be off limits to visitors? Healing takes time and I think your youngest needs this connection to his brother right now.
  2. And my daughter has tested positive for Covid. She says her symptoms are very mild. Just tired and a sore throat. Her husband is trying to get tested. He actually feels worse, but his insurance makes it harder to get the test.
  3. The first holidays post loss are hard. We just did the same as always through the tears. The first one after Stephen's death was 4th of July for us. We live in the country and shoot our own fireworks. Stephen loved this. We got a few of his favorites, said this is for you son, cried, and lit it. And cried some more.
  4. I would say that being busy helps. Just being busy. When my son died I felt numb. My only one schooling was older than yours. But she had a job that summer which kept her busy. (He died the end of May so we had just finished school for the year.) My daughter had her baby just 19 days later. I spent so much time with her, helping her adjust, grieve, and just keeping busy. I'm not certain that helps much. Just know my prayers are with you. I'm so sorry for your loss.
  5. I also think it is the parent's understanding that matters most. And giving the child time to struggle with the problem. And what I mean by that comes from the time I worked at a fine arts school. The children of the teachers would often work math homework in our lunch room. One day a child was struggling with the problems and the mom would just jump in and tell them how to solve it. One day I spoke up and just asked questions. Things like what is the problem asking? What do you already know to do. Will that work here? The child soon knew how to approach the problem herself. And if
  6. Thanks everyone for all the concern and interest with the topic. Dd finally got her results. He did curve and her grade came in above 100, at the top of the class. I think her problem is that he is so vague about what he wants in the solutions and how he wants the material presented, she is never certain she is answering his questions the way he wants. I think this is the class where he took took off full points for a problem because he wanted her to contact him about how to write it out. He fully intended to give her full credit, so she is always a little gun shy.
  7. Once again, thank you for the reply. I emailed it to her and she said it made her feel better about things, like she is not the crazy unreasonable one.
  8. Well that is my first thought. There is no solution manual for this book, and no answers provided in the back. All the homework he assigns are from the book and are the easier problems. She has gotten 100 on all the assigned homework. She works other problems from the book that are similar to the ones assigned, but some of them are way harder. She went over his notes several times before this test. On one of his worked examples, he stated that if you move the equilibrium from ... (I did not exactly understand what she said) you need to use much more advanced equations. He never explained
  9. So the professor went over the test. She understood everything he did and thinks she did it the same way, but is not certain she explained it the way he wants. That is the problem she has been having all along -- not certain exactly what he is looking for. But the most surprising thing is he will not post the grades. He wants them to email him about what they think they had problems with on the test so he can decide how much to curve. It looks like most the people did not do well on the test and he is surprised. And when she said if I email you will you let me know my current grade. The
  10. Her first exam was last night. 4 problems. Two of them included more advanced problems that he never covered in class. And she was talking to the other students before class. (On line class, but in person exams). They have no idea what they are doing. They have just been chegging the homework. So it seems that no one is really understanding.
  11. I am not really certain. I know there is quite a bit of physics application and it uses diff eq somewhat. I did pure math in college also, but I graduated so long ago that I don't remember much past calculus., sigh.
  12. I understand your answer. My husband is a professor and he is careful with who has his answers. She is getting the homework 100 percent correct but still does not feel she understands what she is doing. There is only one section of this class. He is just very vague in all his explanations and does not really answer questions.
  13. And the latest for this prof. The first exam is Monday. The last class before this exam was last night. In class the students are saying they do not understand the homework, would he please post solutions so they can see how to do the problems and how to study for the exam. This is for homework that has already been turn in. His answer is no. So they are never able to see correct solutions. She has actually made a 100 on every homework and is still uncertain of her approach for each new problem. This test has her extremely concerned. I can't imagine how the students without the 100 grade
