# 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.

# Truly Understand Math And Learn Effective Study Skills

## Truly Understand Math And Learn Effective Study Skills

Does your child understand math concepts “for the most part” but frequently struggles with solving problems?
Can they follow along in class but get stuck when working independently?
Do they encounter problems they aren't prepared for on tests, in spite of studying a lot and feeling well-prepared?

Many children experience these problem – at all levels of math!

During our consultations, we meet with students at all math levels, including students taking AP and Honors classes.

Some get decent (or even really good) grades and can solve many problems.
Despite that, it doesn’t take more than several minutes to find problems they are really confused about, or even have no idea how to solve.

It’s shocking!

To truly understand math, your child needs to expand beyond school’s surface-level fixation on homework and tests. Give up on the idea that solving a few examples and finishing homework is enough.

It isn’t.
Your child needs to approach studying methodically.

Your child needs to stop thinking of math in terms of grades. They need to start thinking in terms of understanding and solving.

To illustrate the point: one of the most common issues with school math is the difference between the homework scores and test scores. Many parents are shocked to find out that a good homework score doesn’t mean their child mastered the material.
Not even close!

Your child needs to go beyond homework and focus on:
• variations of problems
• combinations of concepts
• analyzing mistakes – and correcting them
• step by step understanding
• asking questions (especially targeted and “why” questions)
• solving independently

Variations of problems and combinations will allow your child to experience and understand concepts from different angles and perspectives. It will allow them to see how the elements of concepts connect and interact. That, along with in-depth analysis of their mistakes will develop their deep step-by-step understanding. By using this learning style, they will understand math at much deeper level than they could ever reach in class.

# 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.
Independence
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.
