"It's HARD!" I heard a lot of that over the past couple of weeks as we worked through the lessons on Area and Perimeter. He'd get it, then lose it, then get it again.
What I love about ST Math is the ability to see the mistakes and keep working on it. He's developed a lot of independence. So much so, that he finished a level and went straight to the quiz, on his own. While I hoped more had stuck, he only managed 40% on this level - an all-time low. Since he got 80% on the pre-quiz, it also shows that he probably wasn't as careful with the language and making sure he really worked through all of the answers before making a choice - something I still have to remind him to do. So he took the initiative, but rushed to finish and missed a lot.
In ST Math there is a little self-evaluation section where the student can rate how difficult, interesting or educational the unit was. I watched him correctly assess that it was "Very Difficult," "Boring (he says that when it's hard and not moving forward)" and that he learned "A Little."
Fortunately, with a class of ONE, we can stay here a while, until he REALLY gets it. Once more around the perimeter and through the area!
