Subject: Help for fifth grade student

I need to know the best ways to teach my daughter stronger math skills.
For example, these are some of our problem areas: consecutive time, word
problems (she does not know how to figure out what steps to take to get
the correct answer), metric system and money.  She also makes a lot of
careless mistakes. She really enjoyed fractions and most mistakes were
careless ones. She does not like math and we will go over and over it with
her and she looks at you with this blank look on her face because she does
not understand. We are keeping her math book over the summer. I donít know
how to help her have more confidence with math. Any help would be greatly
appreciated. We are getting frustrated.
