Now we are working with division and have written above how he struggled in subtraction I think I understand why division might be yet another difficult concept for him to grasp. He works through the problems fine with the steps but lacks the basic understanding (even using manipulatives of just what he is actually doing and I want to nip that right away so he has a better basic understanding of the concept/skill) I am going to be getting from our local library Division Made Easy. I think it will really help him understand things much more. If we want we can even try some of the worksheets if he wants that is provided on this site. ~
Here is a preview of the book you can probably quickly see why we like these SO much. I plan to go and get this today so we can stop right where we are in our math learning and go through this over the next couple of weeks to get a better foundation.
This series can be found in many libraries so be sure and check it out!
