She's in third grade and she SUCKS at math. I spend hours talking her through basic arithmetic. It is SO frustrating.

Re: Why does my nine year old daughter suck so bad at math?
Because they teach fuzzy math.

They make a 1 minute problem take 8 minutes.

Research "fuzzy math".

If you want her to be smart and well-off financially, homeschool.

Use Saxon math.

Get Mary Pride's book on homeschooling.

She is a 9 year old kid. Cut her some slack. Just because she isn't good at it now doesn't mean she won't be good at it in 10 years.

Get her a better teacher/tutor - the way you teach is clearly not making it clear to her, so find someone who can. Everyone can be good at math - you just need to find the right teacher

Re: Why does my nine year old daughter suck so bad at math?
most girls do suck at math because we are usually right brain dominant which = visual

and math concepts (numbers) are difficult to visualize.

if she's like most girls she probably counts with her fingers instead of in her head ( like guys can).

so if you keep that in mind...that's she's visually cued and incorporate some artistic ways into the math formulas she may grasp it from a different angle.

Look into purchasing an Asian math program for her. It teaches in a totally different way then what U.s uses. WAY better ... Kids using those programs are testing way in advance of their peers

I count on my fingers, bad with math, but yet I visualize inventions and things in my head, like a 3d image of something that I want to figure out, Nikola Tesla described having a very strong ability to make an entire invention with moving parts and dimensions in his head, THEN go and do it on paper, then actually make it.

Re: Why does my nine year old daughter suck so bad at math?
Or perhaps she simply thinks differently than most others.

Try a variety of visual and tactile aids instead of just pencil and paper....

If she's a different type of 'thinker' you want to make sure to support that behavior and not try to crush it by insisting that everything needs done in a certain way all of the time.

This is admittedly true. I was a highly paid corporate lawyer who never saw his kids. I left the homework to my wife. As I saw my kids doing worse and worse in school and life, I knew that they needed me. I quit my job last month. I've been working on math with my daughter since then. She's gotten better but I'm amazed at how far behind she is. WTF was my wife doing for the past three years?

She might have the math equivalent of dyslexia. If her overall knowledge and reading ability is average or above but her math is way low, she might be eligible for special services such as tutoring or accommodations such as calculators. Talk to her teacher.

Lots of good advice here. Not just in this post but in the whole thread. I am trying to get creative with helping her learn this stuff. My wife has a Ph.D. and still does arithmetic on her fingers. Perhaps u should lower my expectations. I'm not a drill Sargent at her on this. But I just needed to vent.

Re: Why does my nine year old daughter suck so bad at math?
math learning is incredibly dependent on the kids developmental level and they catch up quick

just make doing math homework enjoyable with your daughter, find something she is good at and let her become good at it to give her confidence
