My daughter hates math and immediately shuts down when it's time for homework. She doesn't seem to absorb the information, or focus. Need ideas for making math fun, especially fractions. She is in the 4th grade. Thanks

First get a computer game with math that she will enjoy find out her favorite sport or hobby to do and turn it into math

I agree with Alexlove...There are several good computer math games websites if you have access to a computer. You can also go online at your local library. Coolmathgames.com is a great site, and Brainpop.com, Brainpopjr.com are also good. Search a little. If the websites don't work (that's a big "if", since most kids love this!), maybe try a high school student tutor. It might be easier for her to relate to another kid. Good luck.
