Just recently I learned about there Fit 4 Algebra screener. Algebra is a subject that Morgan shys away from as much as possible. Math was never my strong subject, so I understand her fear. I had her take the screener today and it made me feel a lot better about where she is with being ready for Algebra.
Now don’t get me wrong, she has done some Algebra, but we are still focusing on other areas of math until she is more confident. The kid is smart, she just doesn’t like it.
The main thing we liked about the Fit 4 Algebra screener is that it was pretty quick. I think she was on it for about 15 minutes tops. She liked that too.
Some of the online placement tests we have done drag on forever, so at first she was not wanting to do it.
When you click on the sections under build it will pull up video resources that you can go over with your child. I think she may have slacked a bit on the screener, because I know that Morgan knows a lot of this stuff! Teenagers…ugh!
I think this is a great resource for parents and students and I think you should try it out if you have a tween or teen.
According to Sylvan: “A critical gateway subject, algebra is the foundation for higher-level mathematics and science courses in high-school, which in turn can open doors for college and lead to better careers and lifetime earning potential.“. I do believe that Math is definitely a needed skill for everyone, it just depends on what you do to determine how far that math knowledge needs to go. Does that make sense?
Sylvan did an Algebra study and found that almost six in ten (58%) parents confess that algebra is difficult for them to help their children with – even more so than other math-heavy subjects like statistics (31%) and economics (18%). Close to half (49%) of their offspring also place this high on their lists of hardest topics.
They also found that over seven in ten (71%) parents even believe that helping children with algebra work is harder than a much more dangerous milestone: teaching kids how to drive a car.
I’m so glad to see that I am not alone in that feeling! So check it out! Let me know what you think about the Fit 4 Algebra screener. Let’s talk!
I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Sylvan Learning and received a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
