quote:Originally posted by DocNThe best advice I've heard of in dealing with having difficulties in subjects, is to read, re-read and re-read.... the textbook material until you really know what is being presented. This works for me, when studying complex physics areas. If you don't understand the material, than re-read it over and over, until you do.Doc

Maths is a very hierachical form of knowledge - understanding one thing is dependent on understanding something else, so often the problem is that you miss something several years before and never quite get your head round it, which mean that two things that depend on it don't make sense the next year, then 4, then... before long you have a gaping hole in your knowledge and it is not obvious what casued the problem, and reading text books will probably just make you depressed.It is possible some of these holes could be filled in by a really good one to one maths tutor who is willing try and work out what your daughter failed to understand and fix it.
