Any tips on problem solving for living math? We use Math U See and there isn’t any practice sheets online for problem solving.
Carla, perhaps you’ll find a few useful ideas on my living math Pinterest board: http://www.pinterest.com/cindykwest/hs-living-math/
You can also do a Google search “problem solving activities for ___ grade”. I usually have great luck with a specific search for my grade level. 🙂
I have a child struggling with multiplication facts. Any suggestions? There is so much out there. We us MUS and she does the drills, but is not making progress and getting so discouraged.
Jo, I know your struggle! Have you tried Times Tales? That has worked wonders with my boys. The stories that go along with the facts seem to really make sense for children who are visual and/or auditory learners especially.
Otherwise, my youngest (9) really likes when we play catch while practicing facts. He’s very kinesthetic. We put on the baseball gloves and take turns calling out facts and answering them as we throw the baseball.
Do you have any suggestions for high school math?
Sarah, this post has several ideas for high school – https://ourjourneywestward.com/living-math-activities/. 🙂
Hello, do you have any recommendations for students who are struggling with fractions? Also for grade 7 students?
Hi Nil, I just happened to write a post about fractions yesterday. 🙂 You can find books to help in understanding fractions and a few ideas for manipulatives and activities that help fractions make more sense on this post – https://ourjourneywestward.com/picture-books-that-teach-fractions/. Start with a beginning understanding of fractions and move on from there. Your 7th grader will soon be back on track. Don’t forget, there are lots of great YouTube videos to search that help with understanding, too!
