I'm sorry your son is frustrated with Accelerated Math. I have been using the program for almost a year. I review every single TOPS report with every single student. This is a big job, but it is essential to ensure sucess with the program. This is the first thing they teach you at the AM conference! By the time my students have missed a problem three times they have received whole group instruction on the objective at least once, and they have received individual help from me at least twice. It sounds like your son's teacher may be new to the program. You might suggest that your son skip the problems that he doesn't get (because no instruction has been given), this way he will get the intervention from the teacher faster. Tell him not to struggle with problems he has never seen before. But, make sure he takes his time on the problems he has received instruction on. Also, you might check out the advantage learning web site. Ask them to send you information on how the program should be run. It is my belief that the program should be run with a text book. The teacher should teach from the text book first, then assign objectives from Accelerated Math. Good Luck, Dawn
