Cindy pose la question : why do so many people have problems understanding math.
is it because at some point along the way they didn't fully understand
a concept and they then lose confidence. Learning math is cummulative so what you
don't learn at one point just gets more confusing as you move along. how do
we correct this? how can i help students in junior and senior high who do poorly in math. Stephen La Rocque and Victoria West lui répond.

Lori pose la question : I am a elementary teacher 36 math. We have just implemented the Houghton Mifflin Math curriculum. It seems to be quite difficult for most of our students. In order to get through all the material we need to do a lesson a day. Although the students are not getting the material that fast. Should we move on without all the students understanding the material or should we wait and remediate until they get it and be behind for the year. This isn't just a few kids its most of the kids. We are also suppose to teach to all the standards so if we don't get to them the students will not do well on the standardized tests. Diane Hanson lui répond.
