    My son does well in school but still struggles with math. We are doing Teaching Textbooks which he likes. My concern is that sometimes, he does poorly on fairly simple math.  It may be due to inattention.  Any thoughts or recommendations or helping him get past this. He doesn’t have learning disabilities but does struggle with math.  I am just trying to figure out why he is struggling.


    My 11-year-old suddenly was having trouble with sums that he could do in his head at 6. He can still easily do the same sums in real life situations, ie. baking, doing his budget, math drills with a competitor, etc. I was at a loss. Until I followed the advice of another homeschool mom who said to try having him do his drills while bouncing on the trampoline. It works! I think his brain just sometimes turns off when his bottom is in a chair. 😂


    It can be a good idea to do little reviews of the most basic math, especially as students get older.


    I second the recommendation for doing something physical. For my oldest it meant jumping on a mini trampoline, and for my next son it means 5-10 minutes on the elliptical before we start math.
