Khan Academy To The Rescue…

Wednesday, March 11, 2020

D13 started pre-algebra this month. The review was great but now that we’ve started to focus on negative numbers we've had a bit of a setback. The directions for adding and subtracting negative numbers in her book were not the easiest to understand for her or me. I tried several times to show her how I remember what to do but my way wasn’t clear enough for her to grasp. D21 tried to help as well but then D13 got defensive because she thought she was the problem. So I decided to have her stop book work and start the pre-algebra unit on negative numbers on Khan Academy. The videos, articles, exercises, and quizzes seem to be thorough and doing the trick. She will get back to book work next week with a stronger understanding of the concept of negative numbers. Glad to have this excellent resource!

Keep moving forward! — Kohl
