TKDmom Posted February 9, 2012 Share Posted February 9, 2012 This is my dd who hates math. She takes forever to get through a math lesson, and she has melt-downs on a regular basis because it's all so "tedious". (Her math fact recall really is tediously slow.) I have switched her to TT6 because we were butting heads all the time over math. She doesn't like TT any better than anything else we've used, but at least math isn't damaging our relationship anymore. She likes to do word problems, so she also does CWP occasionally. Today she was doing some word problems out of CWP, and she skipped one that she couldn't figure out how to do. When I looked at it, I told her that I could figure it out with algebra, but it would take me a while to figure out how to do it with bar models. Her response was, "Ok, teach me how to do algebra." :lol: I did show her how to solve it algebraically, and she understood most, if not all, of what I was doing. It was fun when she saw where I was going with it and she lit up and finished solving it. So...what can I use with her to get her engaged in math? I don't want to switch math programs again, but I'd like some kind of supplements that she can do to start exploring algebra (or any other interesting math topics) while she is finishing up elementary math.
