My youngest son has always had numerical blocks, we suspect dyscalculia when I look at his maths progress over many years of secondary education I do see progress to relational stages on some aspects of number bonds.
Then today a college homework on averages, medians… We seem to slip back to pre structural. Ideas he has used previously founder again. Is it the mental block to maths achievement? Any suggestions? Seriously ideas appreciated.
We have moved on time, money are not the barriers they used to be but longer term retention of ideas still seem a long way off.
