I have had enough Algebra, so we decided to call it a night and I cracked open a bottle of wine. I have an email request into the teacher(she said she would monitor her email this weekend) to see if she will supply answers to the equations she sent home. It would really be helpful to this math challenged mom to know that we are coming up with the right answers to these problems so that I know Julia understands how to answer them correctly.

I'm sorry to read your child is struggling with Algebra. I totally sympathize as my son struggled so much in geometry last year to get a low C(he is in Algebra 2 this year and has an A)that we had to get a tutor three times a week-more if he had a test and even then, he failed tests.......part of the problem was he and the teacher did not communicate. When I asked her questions, she told me my son had to ask her--and even if he asked for help, she might not help him. What in the World??? I hope you get it worked out.
It was a learning experience for us, that is for sure.

hope you get the answers....I'll be getting Megan a tutor if she has issues with algebra...I totally didn't get it in middle school, know I wouldn't understand it now with my old, tired brain!

I am totally frustrated right now. She took the exit exam for this semester and did not score a proficient. I thought that they would send home that test so we could figure out what she did wrong and go from there. Nope! It is school policy not to give students thier final exams. So instead we got a 29 question exit exam additional review, but no answers to go along with it. There are at least 2 questions so far that neither Julia nor I have any clue as how to approach even beginning to solve them. She has a B for the term, I just don't get this!

OH no!! I hope she will send them.. is this Algebra I??? If you can scan them and email them I will take a look at them.. between DS, DH and myself we can figure it out...
Our teacher's use Algebra that works program... they send the answers home to the problems they do.. but NOT how to do them... then the grade is given based on the work showed and that you got the correct answer (if I remember correctly.. that was 4-5 years ago for the kids)...

at least you have some wine to calm your nerves!!
We never see the kids' tests or finals..and it frustrates me because I can help reveiw the problems with them..but what they found is the same tests were being used over again and the kids were selling the answers..

Yes it is Algebra I. I am giving the teacher awhile to email me back, that seems fair as it is the weekend and she does have a life outside of work. I am trying to be fair and reasonable, but if Julia does not pass this exit exam she will either have to attend night school or summer school, which has her really stressed and freaked out.
Yes the same tests are given each year and that is why we do not get them, I am sort of okay with that, well at least I understand that they do not want to have to make up a new test every year. I just wish that the system in general would just understand that many of us parents do not use Algebra in everyday life or that the way they teach it is sooo different from what we learned. Would it be that difficult to provide us with the support we need as parents to help our children?

Feel free to send some problems to me if you need help as well. Math was always my best subject and I tutored a number of teacher's children when I was working. And if I am not sure of it my brother who tutors college math and lives here would definitely be able to do it.

Thanks Rebecca! We got through about 10 problems last night that Julia is sure she has the correct answers and understands the concept. We are going to tackle some more of them today. Hopefully there are not many that we can't figure out.

I will definately keep you and Nan in mind if we get stuck.

I am so grateful to both of you for your support!
