Hello Everyone! My name is Xavier. smile I am in 6th grade, and I am not that good at math. I recently took my math NWEA, and got a 233! (I'm shocked still).
But even after that, I still have no idea how to do the math that we're learning. (Note: I came from a mainly reading school, and then switched to a different one).
See, at the school i'm at, we do math a grade above our level, which me and my parents don't understand why. And now, we're doing square roots. I just found out about mathisfun after I was searching up "Best ways to remember multiplication" at school. After that, I fell in love with the website. I just found out about this forum now, and here I am now. That's all! big_smile

Hi Xavier,

Welcome to the forum!

Hi Xavier

Great to hear from you.  You've come to the right place. There's loads of excellent teaching materials on the MathIsFun main site and you are welcome to ask for help here on the forum.


I'm from the UK so I don't know what a score of 233 means.
