It is my guess that your student needs assistance with arithmetic as well as problem solving. I will first point you to some of the lessons that I have done with my seventh grade students. Some of them involve Internet access but some of them are just on the Internet and you can get ideas from them. If you go to: http://www.rialto.k12.ca.us/frisbie/coyote/math/unit7.html and from that page if you use the links on the left side of the page you can also go to Units 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12. There is a particular shareware program that I like to use with my students to reinforce arithmetic and integer skills but it only comes in Macintosh. So, if that happens to be your platform, you can download it here: http://www.kidsdomain.com/down/mac/mathstars.html Another resource that I would suggest would be using the Ask Dr. Math Archives here: http://mathforum.org/dr.math/drmath.elem.html http://mathforum.org/dr.math/drmath.middle.html http://mathforum.org/dr.math/drmath.high.html If he needs practice on arithmetic skills you might check out some of the ideas here: http://www.rialto.k12.ca.us/frisbie/coyote/math/arithmetic.html Then, someone else recently wrote asking for worksheets on the Internet and this might be a way for your student to have some drill and practice in case you do not have texts available for him. Here are some possibilities: http://www.mathgen.com/ http://www.shearwater-boats.com/improvingeducation.org/math_worksheets.htm http://www.caverns.com/~mkt/Mathematics/worksheetGenerator.html If there are specific topics that you need help in finding ideas on I will be happy to narrow the focus but I hope some of these ideas are helpful for you to get started. -Suzanne A., for the Teacher2Teacher service
