# Struggling in Math...

**+ Show Post**

Quoting pmcrittersmom:First bravo on paying such close attention. Â Second, you will be able to help her through this. Â Then she will breeze through something else. Â

We have two math products we love. Â We started with Math u see, but found all of the repatative worksheets boring. Â We do like the use of their colored blocks to help with math, though. Â Also, they have a fun cd that has kids singing the multiplication facts. Â My daughters love to sing Â and dance to it.

We switched to the Â Horizons Math. Â Their workbooks are colorful and fun looking. Â In one lesson you cover lots of different types of math (adding, sub., mult, measuring, a taste of algebra, geometry) thats just a sample of what we did this week.

My eldest struggled with adding while I told her to memorize it. Â Once, I relaxed and changed our cirriculumn she loved math and chooses it first....also, she finally did get good at adding.

Good luck and you've got this!!

lol >> I had this one too. IN fact, he is way better now. When I give him english sentences usin nouns, verbs and adjectives and so forth, he will not only write the individual sentences, but will write them in consecutive order in theme style, where each sentence immediately following, to the end, tells a story.

Right now I have one that is just not wanting to click with anything and I know for a fact the they are as smart as a whip! grrrr! But, as with the other kids, this one will pull out of this phase they are in. I just wish it wouls happen sooner rather than later. :)

This makes me feel so much better that other people are goin through this and that it's not just me!! She does so well in all her other subjects.Writing could use a little work only because she finds it sooo boring and hates to add detail but she can be such a great writer when she puts her mind to it.Quoting kirbymom:@ blueyed >>> This is what I would suggest. Do some review everyday along with her regualar work. Do the same thing with the rest of her work. Do a little review of something that you just covered and put in with the rest of her work. She will get it again. Sometimes, these things are just a phase. It is tough to have to go through something like this but at least there is a light at the end of the tunnel. For you and for your daughter. I had this happen with 3 of my kids. One of them took about 3 years before it finally clicked with them but now, it is like there was never a problem to beging with. Gah! lol

Quoting mem82:I would do a Math review everyday and then do your normal Math. They will eventually come to her quickly. I had to go back and do that with my oldest. She is in 6th grade and will forget basic Math facts if she doesn't use them in a week. Makes me bonkers.

@ mem >> Good job. :)

I haven't tried these yet she just came over and gave me the list. Good luck to you all.

Thanks for the suggestions I will definitely check them out. I can use all the help that is offered!

I did buy the Math Mammoth though. I am just starting over with the multiplication and still doing the other areas in math that she knows.

Hi my dd is also struggling with math, she's 10 years old also. She just got an assessment from the school department and her math was off. The woman who tested her gave me some websites to help. Oh and my dd is in the 4th grade.
