Hi,

My DD has no problem in answering questions independently in maths and that includes Onsponge questions. However, she always make careless mistakes like adding or subtract wrongly and not able to spot her mistakes even she double check. Some questions she knows should be subtract but she use addition. These caused her lost many marks in her SA2.

How do you help if you have this type of students?

Dear Catddy,

From a teacher's point of view, your DD obviously know her work. Carelessness is an area which can be avoided with more practices and caution.

Try getting her to highlight key words from the question. Key words such as total, sum of, difference, more than, less than etc. After which, write down the correct operation above these key words.

This extra step will not take her more than 1 minute. However it serves as a reminder on the correct operation to use.

I have many students who are just like your DD. This method works for them.

Hope it helps you.
