His arithmetic skills are awesome but when presented with a math story problem, he falls apart, helpless. No matter how many times I suggest that he read the problem carefully. note down the givens. assign names to intermediate and final values. form equations. activate his Kumon engine (brain), he just can't get past the read_the_problem_carefully step.
Whereís the answer sheet? Are the answers correct? Are the answers listed in a column that you have to match with the student worksheets or on a replica of the student page laced with answers? Last thing you need is to be in a hurry and red mark student worksheets...when their answers were correct all along.
