What is the name of this test? You said that there is 'math vocabulary' in that test that your child doesn't know. If this is not the map test, I would suggest you go to IXL.com and scroll through the grades. You'll see 100% of the vocabulary there. If it is the MAP test, then you may be seeing 3rd and 4th grade concepts that you are not covering, and again, IXL is a good way to get the whole list at once and practice a few problems from each concept.Norwoodhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/09462923179883891369noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5703568807615263851.post-7316277502617440712018-01-26T12:20:40.449-08:002018-01-26T12:20:40.449-08:00Two things, and I consider this more important tha...Two things, and I consider this more important that being ahead in math because it will help grades across the board. First, do word problems, complicated ones. Second, instead of doing 5 or 10 or 20 problems, do 3 and have your child explain to you how to do them. More talking, more thinking, less decimals and long division. Decimals and long division aren't used after 5th or 6th grade anyway in any subject. Maybe science uses decimals.Norwoodhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/09462923179883891369noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5703568807615263851.post-85302292001251760542018-01-25T14:31:42.337-08:002018-01-25T14:31:42.337-08:00My second grader is not nailing computer math test...My second grader is not nailing computer math test in class. School district switched paper math test to computerized test this year. He is advanced in math and we've been doing 4th grade math problems. But computer test seems to have math vocabulary in questions that he doesn't understand the questions completely. What's the best way to learn math vocabulary? I feel like his score is low because of this sort of technical issue although he knows all the math concepts and has problem solving skills.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
