Problem Sums: Units & Parts
Children often cannot rearrange letters and numbers in an equation.
The + and - signs bog them down.
To them, they are just so many permutations and they are very confused.
+ + -
- + -
+ - + - ...
Letter number letter
Number number letters number
Number letters numbers letter letters
Letter - number + letter
Number - number + letters + number
Number - letters - numbers - letter - letters + numbers
However, this skill is very important to handle questions with UNITS and PARTS.
The concept of units and parts is VERY IMPORTANT for problem sums.
The good news is: NOT TO WORRY
If your child makes mistakes on this, he just needs more practice until it CLICKS in his brain.
