Ok I knew I was bad at Maths but did not realise just how awful until I have been on dd's mymaths, she has been set homework on single brackets and substitution. How can I help her when I have no idea what to do?
Are there any websites which would help me with the Math work?
If you google simultaneous equations you'll have more luck with an explanation. The idea is to pick one variable and define all others in terms of that variable, then simplify & solve. They are much easier than they appear.
If you're having problem with a specific problem I'd be happy to help.
Good idea with Khan the best way is for us parents to get clued up. A bit of Khan or a revision guide can jog our memories so we are able to help. Lots of people resort to a maths tutor to help with this stuff, but its not rocket science really ;)
No curlew, no student section - what a good idea!. Bit annoyed with her teacher tbh, he told them if they don't get a green face on their online homework they will get a detention. How can you punish someone for not understanding?
