Homework Help: Why do so many kids struggle with math, especially algebra?
Teachers often move fast in math to cover the curriculum. Unfortunately kids don’t always have each concept solid before they have to move on to the next concept. Math just keeps getting harder.
Kids that struggle with algebra never got a solid foundation with fractions. The way you manipulate fractions is the same way you manipulate equations so it’s necessary to really understand fractions.
