    Default Help for 8th grade math

    We are not homeschooling but needing some supplemental "fun" ways to help and encourage our 8th grade son. He is currently failing math and at risk for repeating the 8th grade. He is having difficulty grasping the Pre-Algebra skills and not motivated to even try.

    What do you think about using this program for that sort of thing????? Is sounds like it is interactive which should help maitain his interest. I have seen other DVD programs, but think that he will quickly loose interest.

    Any suggestions appreciated!!!
    TIA

    Hi! Many students use Time4Learning for this type of thing. You might be interested in this page about after school learning enrichment.

    I might suggest that you start him a level or two below his actual grade, until he gets used to the program. You want it to be fun and not frustrating from the beginning. ;-)

    Mom of six . . . current students and homeschool graduates. Enjoying using Time4Learning since 2006!
