honestly, math is the Achilles heel of most homeschoolers. many of us are not math gurus and math is one thing you can't teach yourself unless you are naturally gifted in it. If you struggle with math at all, you need a good teacher, live, who really knows their stuff, and is not just a step ahead of you in the textbook, to walk you through problem solving. Having an answer key is not enough, not at all, because it doesn't teach you the method of how to think about the problem. Math at this level is not about just learning methods and formulae and rules and content; it's learning a way of thinking, of setting up problems in your mind, of developing strategies. You can't get that in a workbook, no way.

Call your local college math department and find out how to get a math whiz student to tutor, or possibly your child can attend their math tutoring center.
