adding subtracting help

I need a website that shows adding and subtracting. I would like ones that maybe you've used before one that you would recommend for kids that have a hard time learning.
My son is in the 4th grade and I've told them to please help him they have him on a computer program that supposedly will help. I want to help him too but he gets frustrated and cries when we show him. This is also embarrassing but I to have forgotten how to borrow,I know YIKES wow I must be eternally doomed to stupidity I feel like I'm a total dumb ass. Suggestions please ladies Thanks

    add 7 + 3 which is 10. The 0 goes under the 7, and the 1 goes above the 2. Now add 5+2+1 = 8. The 8 goes under the 5. Your answer is 80.


    You cannot do 6-8, so borrow 1 from the 5. Now you have 16 - 8, which is 8. Put the 8 under the 8. Now the 5 changes to a 4 (since you borrowed 1). 4-2=2. Put the 2 under the 2. Your answer is 28.

  • First, you have to find out the math program your child's school is using. In my son's school district, they use the Chicago Math program and it teaches left to right. Then, ask the teacher for extra worksheets. You can also try, Your child's math book may have online access to get more help or tutorials.
