Your Child’s Situation

Your Child’s Situation

Your child’s homework score is high or perhaps even 100%, but that doesn’t carry over to their grades on tests and quizzes.

This situation can be very frustrating and confusing. To both your child and you. How can it be possible? How can your child do so well on homework and yet so poorly on tests? Shouldn't your child's great homework performance indicate their high math level?

Unfortunately, that's not the case.
Homework isn't a reflection of your child's math level.

Here is why:
  • this might shock you but getting 100% on homework doesn't mean your child actually solved all (or even most) of the problems correctly
  • homework tends to be easier than tests
  • homework often doesn't include all concepts that occur on tests
  • homework doesn't have a time limit, and tests do
  • homework is open-notes and tests aren't

Your child understands many problems, but has hard time solving them independently, especially under pressure (thus, low quiz and test scores). Some concepts are easy for them while others are very challenging.

When those challenging problems occur on the homework, your child can look through their notes, ask their friends for help or simply solve them incorrectly (and still get a full score, that's right).

On the other hand, when the challenging concepts occur on tests, your child gets confused and loses a lot of points.

Homework doesn't teach math.
It simply reinforces the mistakes, and makes your child feel as though they are making progress. In reality, they aren't – which is apparent to you based on their test scores.

Your child needs help bridging the gap between their homework and tests:

They need to learn how to solve problems independently. They need to use deep learning to really understand math concepts. Not just those they get on the homework but the whole variety, including special cases and challenging cases.

Instead of simply completing homework for the grade, they need to use homework to actually learn. Then, they need to expand on the homework, to tackle the concepts that are most challenging for them. They also need to strengthen their fundamentals, for success and confidence in their current and future math classes. And math fundamentals are, unfortunately, also not included in the homework.

Doing well on homework and struggling with tests makes many children lose their confidence very quickly. Putting in the effort with no results, over and over again, makes them very frustrated and discouraged.

Your child already struggles with independent solving, along with (likely) fundamental math concepts, and losing even more confidence is only adding to the problem.

How Your Child Can Reach Their #1 Math Goal:

Establish Math Fundamentals

How Your Child Can Reach Their #1 Math Goal:

Establish Math Fundamentals

Does your child have hard time understanding problems in class?
Do they often get stuck solving math problems?
Do they get frustrated because they constantly get confused with fractions, roots and other fundamentals?
Even when they understand a topic, do they often get confused when they encounter a slightly different example that they're used to?

Your child, like many other children, struggles with math fundamentals.

Why is that a huge problem?
Because math fundamentals occur and will continue to occur in every math problem your child will ever encounter in math.
That's why they get stuck so often.
That's why a small change in a problem throws them off.

It is critical that they master and get confident in math fundamentals, and continuously review them as needed, to remain confident and fluent in their fundamental skills, at any level.

Shockingly, many teachers incorrectly assume that fundamentals are easy... and don’t explain them!
As a result, many children don’t learn them well, or at all.
Hence, your child likely never has.

Fundamentals are fundamental, yes, but not easy!
Many topics are hard for many children when they learn them the first time, no matter how basic.
Fundamentals are no different.
Not only are fundamentals not easy, your child won't succeed in math without them.

Hence, it's even more important to truly understand them, master them, and be able to confidently use them at all times.
Your child's math success depends on it.

Perhaps your child learned math fundamentals a long time ago and didn’t get a chance to refresh their knowledge and practice them recently.
Rarely do classes incorporate a fundamentals review, and only a brief one. Many teachers simply assume that children already know them and don’t see the necessity to review them at all – which costs children frustration, lower grades, lower confidence and confusion.

Fundamentals are like dribbling in basketball – they are an essential part of math.
And need to be treated as such.

Becoming confident and fluent in fundamentals will help your child:
  • understand more in class
  • follow along much easier
  • speed up
  • understand math better
  • solve more challenging problems
  • be more confident in math overall
Your child needs to independently practice the fundamentals that pertain to the concepts they are currently learning because, unfortunately, they won’t get that practice in class. Fundamentals aren’t necessarily challenging but they often do have many variations, and they tend to be detailed.

That’s why your child needs to solve a large number of examples, to gain confidence and speed. It is absolutely critical that they master them, to gain high level of confidence and proficiency.

After they master solving pure fundamental problems, your child should also understand and practice applications of fundamentals, to bridge the gap between pure math operations and how they work in multi-step problems. Most children skip this step and end up struggling.

Your Child’s Potential For Improvement

Your Child’s Potential For Improvement

Homework is not enough
Your child needs to learn multiple variations of problems. Each topics consists of several major types your child needs to master to do well. Even if the homework doesn't include all of them, tests most likely do.
Your child needs to solve problems independently to gain confidence, feel strong and be prepared for tests. Simply solving problems isn't enough.
Foundations of math
In order for your child to understand math concepts in-depth and build the foundation for success in their future math classes, they need to become fluent and confident in the fundamentals of math.
Eliminate your child's weaknesses
Your child needs to use homework and expand on it to identify and eliminate their unique weaknesses, instead of simply completing the homework. It will help them get better grades, progress faster, gain confidence and so much more.
