    Default Know what they are learning before they learn it

    Does anyone know how to know exactly what they are learning in math before they actually learn it or.....if there is any worksheets or books that accompany what he is learning in Math here? He is so frustrated with the computer and how many times can we go over the same lesson over and over again. We had a issue with one of the sections not taking an answer in the 3rd grade section. Also are the button on the top 1/2/3 mean grade level or do they mean challenging level? HELp!!!!!

    I have a third grader now, and if we r stuck in one 'section' or one lesson, we stop from there, we practice on the blackboard, we research online until we get it, then we go back to that specific lesson.
    And it works for us.

    Hi Elizabeth,

    If a lesson has a worksheet, it will say "Resource" just below it. Click and print. Is is possible that your son is working at a level that is too hard for him in math? If that's the case, drop down one grade level. You are allowed to work one grade level above and one grade level below in each subject. Just click on the grade level you need for each subject. If your son had or is having a problem with a lesson, please submit a post on the "Technical Issues" forum so it can be addressed and corrected. My DD is in the Upper Level program, so I am not sure what you mean with the 1/2/3.

    Here are two links to help you use the Time4Learning System:

    I would also suggest you post on "Members Chat on Using Time4Learning" since this forum is really geared to supplementing T4L. You would get more action over there.

    I think that the levels you are refering to are indeed grade level.

    Elizabeth, you can preview the lessons before your child does them. Just don't mark them as complete, so they don't show up on his reports.

    Especially at the lower levels, students usually need a tutor for math. I sit with my younger kids when they do their math lessons. (It's amazing how much I've learned that way!) That way, I can also reinforce what they're learning during our every-day life. For example, if I know they are learning fractions, I might serve pizza for dinner! If they are counting by twos, I'll have them count silverware. You get the idea.

    The grade level buttons are useful for trying out lessons at other levels.

    Thanks guys. He took his first big test and got an 86. I think I was over actualizing.
