Please help me, my son struggles in the 6th grade. I am afraid that he might have to repeat again. He has low grades in reading and math.I have spoken with his teachers, and they say lack of motivation. How do i help him so he can do what he needs to. I really cant afford alternative schools, maybe you have some suggestions. I want to help my child.

Math and Reading 
Ms. Sue,
Here's one possibility. Tell his teacher or counselor that you think your son may be learning disabled. By federal law, the school must then evaluate him and make recommendations.

Math and Reading 
Writeacher,
Ms. Sue's recommendation is a really good one. And the sooner you get this testing done, the better, even if the results show that he does not need special education in any form. As he gets older, it'll be harder and harder  and eventually impossible  to get this testing done.
Do it now!!

Math 
Martha,
Place the digits 2, 4, 5, 6, and 8 in the boxes to obtain
(a) the greatest difference
(b) the greatest product
I came up with
A. 865  24
B. 865 * 42
