This is so hard. She can do equations - she can understand how to get the answers. She isn't quite grabbing why we make equations, what they are for - how to use an equation to find out information - WHY it is important. We talked about it over about ten different scenarios. I did more calculations and had her go step through with me. I asked her to make an equation -and she made a multiple choice question. It was a good one! But.. not an equation. We will keep working on this. I know it is not an instantaneous type thing.
