If my dad was still here... He was an engineer and this stuff came easy to him.

May need a tutor.

Any of you going through the same?

No kids here, but I'm amazed at what the kids today are learning at such early ages

I had to start over in algebra since I went back to college. I use this site all the time to help me work similar problem out of my book. Hit the enter button in the center of the page and look under the drop down menu to find your text book. If its there, you can find the chapter your in and they help with the odd problems but dont use the same values.

At the problem, just click "help me solve" and it will ask you questions to help you solve it. Best site Ive used so far.

If your text book isnt in there, give me a example problem and I'll tell you what chaper to look under from my text books.

I dig it. Mine is only in 6th grade but between the math and history it's like a big ole' flashback.

IMO, the parents can play a bigger role in the education of their child than the teachers.

Is there a specific problem she is having trouble with?.

So far I've been able to help him with the formulas and theories but only because I use them in my work. Now as we progress I'll be in trouble.

Fortunately the school here has a "helper" math course which he has. Simply put, instead of a useless elective like music he has 2 math periods per day. "Helper math" is the period right before "algebra" and they go over yesterday's work and trouble spots, etc.

He struggled a bit last year with math because it was a bad combination of tougher math, too many of his close friends in that class and a teacher who had health issues and missed weeks at a time. He never got into a routine. But since it got him in "helper math" it was a bleesing in disguise.

"Helper math" started off as 9 kids now 3 weeks into the school year there are 14 with more coming.

Yes the ladder stages of childhood ADHD for starters Lots of learning and therapy for the whole family over the years has proven to pay off. She is getting it but slowly. Thank you for offering! The hard part is for me to re-learn it then explain it. That's where a tutor will help because they don't have to re-learn it. That website is going to help too.I dig it.

How many of you have the kids that argue with you that "that's not the way I was shown how to do it"...my wife and 12yr old daughter go to death battle anytime my wife tries to help her with any type of homework...the females cant get along with other female thing I guess. Usually takes me raising my voice once to settle her the fuck down, show her how I derive at the answer, and help her see that there is more than one way to get the solution, not this way and this way only.......so that's our biggest battle.

Few times I've had to speed read her book to job my brain, do a google search to get the wheels turning since some of this stuff I haven't dealt with since school...finding common denominators for one LOL. I enjoy it, helping her out and all..plus it saves me a headache of listening to wife/daughter bickering

Mine is high functioning Asbergers kid.....which makes it easy to teach (he's spookey smart compared to me) but......I SUCK as a teacher. I know how to do the stuff but putting it in a way he can grasp is a challenge but we have gotten through it thus far. I do the maff and the sciences (with a tinge of history) and the wife does all the English/writing blah blah stuff that I didn't get then and still don't.Yes the ladder stages of childhood ADHD for startersLots of learning and therapy for the whole family over the years has proven to pay off.
