    Who knew Peter was that smart? Putting a dollar sign in front of it ALWAYS makes math more interesting.

    This is how we raised my nephew’s grade point by 1.5 when he was 11. We used money on the table, price lists of the toys/games he wanted, and his first savings account. His mom wasn’t happy that she had to help out with the savings account when he came home after his visit that summer but was pleased they didn’t have to spend so much time on homework anymore.

    Ahhh, the joys of being the uncle, not the parent.

    My algebra students can learn to handle the original problem, but nearly every one will freeze up at the sight of a word problem. It doesn't seem to matter whether it's about something that interests them.
