Q:

# Suggestions for helping my daughter remember math facts?

My daughter is in second grade and they are doing 2 1/2 min timed tests. She does fine with the easy ones, i.e. 2+1,3+2....However, when she gets into the higher numbers, she can figure out the answers correctly, but it just takes her a little longer. And I don't know how to get her to understand and remember that if she just answered 8+9=17, that 9+8=17, even if it is two questions later. I remember seeing a mnemonics tape years ago, but haven't been able to find it. She can finish all the problems w/ the right answers, but it takes longer than the time allotted. And what are we going to do when she has to do subtraction in a few weeks??? Does anyone have any suggestions????
