I dont get it and neither does my daughters teacher.
My daughter is in 3rd grade. She has always struggled with math. Basic adding, subtracting and story problems confuse the hell out of her. Takes/took her 2 hours to do 2 pages of math homework. Her class is now into multiplication and division. She has no problem with this stuff, its like she's done it for years. Last night she got all her multiplication and division homework done in 45mins. And there was a lot ( like 4 pages). I thinks its great that this stuff is sticking and she's understanding it so fast and so well. Her teacher and I just don't get how she doesn't get the basic 56+34 but if you turned that into 56x34 she gets the answer in less then a couple mins.
