Now that school is back in full swing, new math ideas are coming at students every day. Math builds from one concept to the next, so falling behind becomes worse as the year wears on.
So, if a child is having a hard time keeping up in math, it’s important to act NOW. Fortunately, there are many tell-tale signs that a child is falling behind—parents simply need to know what to look for.
Below are six signs that suggest a child is struggling with math.
- Math grades lagging, but student has good grades in other subjects.
- Low self-esteem about math, with child making comments like: “I’m no good at math.”
- Missing key milestones. Addition/subtraction should be mastered by end of 2nd or 3rd grade, multiplication and division by the end of 3rd—4th grade, fluency with fractions at the end of 5th—6th
- Physical signs like counting on fingers suggest poor retention of number facts.
- Comments from the child’s teacher about “not working up to his or her full potential.”
