My sonīs maths teacher rang me last night at home to talk about my son. I had asked all teachers to write a brief note about his progress because his pdoc likes to check his progress, which I think is great.

The teacher said that my son sits at the front of the class, is able to understand and do the exercises, but the next day will make errors. His main problem at the moment is formulas for equations. He continually makes the same errors. However if the teacher sits with him or my son does an equation on the blackboard in front of the class he manages very well.

Left to his own devices he just canīt remember how to do them. His teacher has spoken to my sonīs maths teacher from the previous year and he said more or less the same, he can understand and complete the exercises but not "learn".

My son failed maths last year, he is 14 so has extra classes one evening per week provided by the school so that he can retake his exam. He is just scraping by.

He also has extra maths during school time instead of French, plus extra maths and other subjects with a private tutor.

The teacher said he isnīt the only student who struggles but he is at a loss as to how to help him.

He has problems with other subjects but Iīm singling out maths because he has the most help with this.

Any ideas on how he can remember formulas. He had no problems during primary school with numbers.

thanks
