## What are some of the problems that your kids have in maths at school. Please mention grade and age.

Am planing on making videos and writing material to complimint the existing videos available for free on the net. Want to share more than 30 years of hard earned knowledge with everybody that wants to use it. needs someone to help with animation and getting the info out into the world. am extremely busy teaching but am so tired of hearing how people(children of all ages and adults) are not enjoying maths

To me in my own learning of math and in watching her try to learn it, it was the connection between objects and the symbols (numbers) that helped. I could not see for the longest time as a child that these symbols represented a three dimensional logical underpinning of things. That additional and multiplication where all really the same constructs of manipulating data to get to the same places......

if there's one thing i remember specifically helping in math in general was repetition of easy problems. Instead of a few very hard problems, lots of easy problems, gradually working up to harder ones only when students are completely confident in their abilities in easier problems. Making math fun also helps, especially as the teacher. Teachers who are funny/ poke fun at others/ take fun made at them/ are easy going and easily approachable/ help a lot more then i think teachers know.

Good luck =)
