Eighth Grade Math




Wow! Hard to believe it has been several months since the new school year officially started. I’m sure, you are probably settled into the daily routines of your homeschooling. I know we are. By now, you may have discovered areas of study that your child is struggling with as well. Eighth grade math is a subject that often is complained about. Truth be told, math at any grade really can cause some math anxiety, not only for our kids but for us as parents too. For some parents, math is not an easy subject to teach, especially if math is not our child’s best subject. What I have found to help, is to remember that we have to teach, keeping our children’s homeschool learning style in mind. We want to make it easier for them to learn, which in turn will make it easier for us to teach. So, if your child has been having some issues with math this year, figuring out how they learn best may be all that is needed to make the difference.
