DD hates math. Every day this week it has turned into a meltdown. I know it's not too hard, and it's not all too easy though some is more of a review for her, but I need to see what she knows so I only have her do a couple problems if its review. Then she makes obvious mistakes and she has a tantrum if I try to explain why something isn't right. Today it only took her 10 min to do 9 problems but 8 of them were wrong because of simple mistakes or not reading directions. She also hasn't memorized her multiplication facts (6s, 7s and 8s...the others she knows for the most part but I wouldn't say fluently).
So, can I schedule real math like m/w/f and just do a math game on t/th? Any other ideas? I just don't want to fight every day but I also think she really needs to learn this stuff.
There are tons of math games where the players really do not realize they are using math. I would also perhap sub a lesson for a cooking lesson instead. I wonder if a tutoring center could do independent testing to just see if she is trying to rebel against you in this subject or really does not understand the concepts.
I haven't read the other replies and I'll probably be reamed a new one for this but, yes, math needs to be done every day. If there is ONE subject, above all others, that I feel needs to be done daily (to keep it fresh and ensure no gaps or lapses), it's math.
