julie4 Posted June 14, 2012 Share Posted June 14, 2012 My son who is 9 tomorrow and just completed 3rd grade at private school cannot remember any math facts. We are starting homeschooling this fall so i had him take the saxon placement tests. All the problems he got wrong were simple addition/subtraction/multiplication errors. He gets the concepts & can figure out word problems. I see him counting on his fingers for single digit addition/subtraction. He memorized all these this year & passed his timed drills at school, but now seems to have forgotten them all. The last 2 weeks of school he passed his mutiplication table test, but has not retained any of that 2 weeks later. Would doing 3rd grade level math again benefit him if understands the concepts but can't memorize the facts? Any suggestions? We've tried flash cards, ipad games, saying them outloud. I was planning on Saxon math for him. Do you think there is a curriculum that may be a better fit? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
