My niece, a bright, curious 10 year old about to enter 5th grade, was told by her teacher that she should have a math tutor this summer (actually, her parents were told). Poor thing cried. She loves school, but she does have a great deal of trouble wrapping her mind around math concepts, so I think the teacher is correct. Does anyone have any suggestions/experience with homebased math education to supplement public school? Her parents work full time or more, but gramma is willing to do what she can. I've tried to get ahold of the Multiplication Rock series, but can't seem to find one in print. But maybe I'm missing something. HELP?
