You can also go talk to the teacher and see what his/her suggestions are. I had one teacher send home an accompaniment book for their math book. It told step by step how to do each type of problem so that I could better help. They do things differently now than they did when we were young. So even though I knew how to do the problems I confused my son more because I didn't do them the way he was taught. The book helped with that. The teacher should be more than willing to help you with ideas to help your daughter improve.

My daughter had problems last year with math....ask the teacher to show you (because many things have changed since we were in school) her teacher also sent home "extra papers" to help with...the school website is also a great idea as suggested by a few other parents...I also have to tell you that my daughter just received her report card the other day and that math grade is now an A. he will get it just keep working with him...good luck

there are many computer programs u can buy to help her with her math. and u can also find out if there are any store in your area that sells teacher supplies and see if the have any thing that can help but the computer stuff should help cause it's more fun for them to learn from. i hope this helps

my son is 11 and he also has trouble with math. i went on his schools website and found a math glossary and dictionary that showed pictures and descriptions of formulas and all that...i dont know if it has helped him yet because i just gave it to him yesterday. but you might think of doing the same thing. most schools have a section on their website for parents to help with homework.
