I'll check the board
As long as you don't plan on teaching counting, to 21, using all your digits...I guess it would be a good idea.

I don't know what school your daughter goes to, or what grade she is in, but they do have a class called "math fundamentals" in high school, that is a math review/support class. My daughter took that class, and it helped her with her Algebra class. It is not a math credit though, although when she moved out of state, they counted it as a math credit. If she is in high school, there is alot of help, for passing the math portion of the TEST. See if they have that for your daughter's school.

Okay so I have been out of college for about 6 years now, and so when I am transferring my credits to a new university and none of my math credits are being transferred over. So i either I have to take the placement test or take 2 remedial math classes that I don't even get credits for. Um, any ideas on close to or free tutoring for a college student. Thanks bunches.

I'm a systems engineer and I don't use math at all. The only time I use math is to convert units, add and subtract, multiply and divide, and ONE time I had to use simple algebra. That's it.

I'm retired... but I perform quantile regression in reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces, multinomial Tobit analyses, etc on a weekly basis. But to this day, I cannot do simple arithmetic.

I think knowing complex math formulas are not important for most jobs, but taking math courses helps you develop a certain way of thinking that is useful for many technical jobs.

When I work with engineers, we don't remember or use all the math we learned in college, but we all have a logical way of solving problems. Other courses like language, writing, and art will stimulate creativity and communication skills, while math and science will stimulate your logical thinking skills. It's always a good idea to help your children succeed in all areas, because you never know when you're going to need those skills in the future.

And if you study law and become a lawyer, that will stimulate your "B.S."ing skills. I'm just kidding.

"I've tried helping her and the end result is BOTH of us crying. It's horrible!! I know I need to calm down and me getting worked up doesn't help either of us. However, I get frustrated the she gets frustrated then she doesn't understand and I don't remember! I did this math YEARS ago!! I wasn't cut out to be a teacher and I have no patience PLUS math was never my best subject. I've got a massive headache at this point and I need a freakin drink!! "

So why do you want to put your child through this? Forget about the homework and grades and read a good book together!
