You have completed your questionnaire. Based on your responses, we crafted a customized report for you.Keep reading to find out our recommendations for your child for reaching their main math goal, their potential for improvement and the exact reasons why they are struggling with math.
Your child’s homework scores are high or perhaps even 100%, but that doesn’t carry over to their grades on tests and quizzes, which causes them a lot of frustration (and it’s also very confusing for you). Your child’s level of fundamentals is low. Some concepts are easy for them while others are very challenging. Your child understands most problems, but has hard time solving them independently, especially under pressure (thus, low quiz and test scores).
Your child needs help bridging the gap between their homework and tests. That involves learning how to solve problems independently. Using deep learning to really understand math concepts including special cases and challenging problem types. They need help using homework to learn, instead of simply completing it. They also need help strengthening their fundamentals, for this and future math classes.
Doing well on homework and struggling with tests makes your child lose their confidence more and more. Putting in the effort with no results, over and over again, makes them very frustrated and discouraged. Your child already struggles with independent solving and losing even more confidence is only adding to the problem.
Your child likely has math anxiety because they lack confidence in their math skills, they feel frustrated with math because they get stuck on most of the problems, feel overwhelmed by homework and pressure to do well.
To eliminate their math anxiety, your child needs to boost their confidence, eliminate the frustration and the overwhelm. They can accomplish that by building math fundamentals and start understanding math by applying the active learning approach.
They should start by understanding homework and covering the fundamentals that apply to the topics they are currently learning. As they progress, they need to start attempting to solve more and more advanced problems with less and less guidance.
