Quill Posted January 5, 2011 Share Posted January 5, 2011 Didn't see that coming! She's been working on Keys to Algebra, but I told her today that I wanted her to take a look at my Introductory Algebra textbook from college. Maybe that is what freaked her out - that it was a college book. So, I was working on this pretty simple equation, except that it had fractions (and yeah, those are kinda a pain) and she dissolved. She sobbed that "It's so much pressure to be good at all this high math before high school!" :001_huh: Okay, for real, the Mom in my Brain was saying, "HA! You think this is pressure? Nobody here is even grading you or giving you finals!" But I really just tried to reassure her that it's no pressure, we'll get where we need to be, don't worry about it, we'll work through the book, I know you can learn this, it seems intimidating, but you'll find it's not so bad, yadayadayada...:nopity: Sheesh! Poor thing. But, sheesh! I'm sure there's a cycle-end around here any minute... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
