My son Justin is in 5th grade He has 100's on all work except spelling and math facts. On the FCAT (Florida version of the TEST) He scored 4 in math with 3 being average. He's got a D in math because he can't pass his subtraction, multiplication and division facts. He's no where close to passing. He's losing privileges at school because he can't pass the tests. I had a conference with his teacher who told me he was lazy but very smart. I immediately contacted the guidance counselor to get a child study going. He refused because Justin got a 4 two years in a row in math. He even pulled Justin in and quizzed him. He knew his facts just not fast like they have to for the test... 100 facts in 5 min. We've done flashcards for three years and it's not working. Anyone know what works? Should I request testing in writing? HELP!
