robsiew Posted September 6, 2012 Share Posted September 6, 2012 My 11ds (almost 12) is having a hard time with his math work. He understands the concepts well, but he makes errors in calculation all over the place. Just minor ones, but mistakes nonetheless. He is a slow worker so he can't get a whole lot slower. I don't want to tell him to "slow down" or he'll take all day to get math done! I've tried telling him to double check his work at each step, but that hasn't seemed to help either. I'm not sure what to tell him. Maybe less problems so he can really focus on just a few? Right now he does 2 pages of Math Mammoth a day and he's half way through 6A. Maybe just go down to one page? He is naturally a "big picture" kid (like his mom) so details mess him up a lot. We're fighting a wiring issue here... not just carelessness. When I sit down with him he can find the errors and knows what's wrong.... and again, he's getting the concepts. Then again maybe it's adolescent fog! Any "cures" for that? :lol: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
