Life of Fred and retention...

Recommended Posts

My dd struggles constantly with math concept retention. She can usually "get it" when she comes across a process again (like fractions, ratios, decimals, long division :eek:, etc.) after a litte review. I'm wondering if a series like LoF might help her retain the information more easily, since she tends to remember information from reading stories and less formal presentations - she loves Rainbow Science.


We're currently using Singapore 6A/B along with some basic worksheet supplements (printed from the web).


Any thoughts?

My dd is the same way. We are using LOF decimals and percents right now. (She's behind in math.) I also use MM because LOF does not give enough practice problems for her. LOF does do a spiral type method which is useful, but she has to keep reviewing. That is why I also use MM and keep going back over things. FTR, dd hates math, but LOVES LOF.
