kalanamak Posted August 1, 2012 Share Posted August 1, 2012 Kiddo and I are doing SM. He gets everything but fractions. We took a 4 week detour through books 1 and 4 of Key to Fractions last December. That seemed to work. He forgot everything, I mean EVerything in 2 weeks. We took a 4 week detour through Kumon Fractions in April-May. He has forgotten everything. In the mean time he has polished the floor with decimals, remembers the names of the types of triangles from last fall, doing better and better in word problems etc. etc. I reviewed yesterday and his fraction knowledge is a black gaping hole. AFter an hour review a dim glimmer appeared, and he could finally work simple conversions from improper to mixed fractions. He claims to be unable to remember the words "numerator" "denominator" and "dividing line". What would you do next? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
