I use this method to do math in my head, but when I tried to teach my children, they just could not get it.

True, and no matter which way you split the six or the 9 for that matter it works, the basic elements remain unchanged. But that should come after a simple 9+6=15. It shouldn't be the rudimentary lesson.

Hi jb, feeling better?

Yeah, I know what you mean. When they began teaching my kids to read via memorization of words, I thought I'd better teach them how to read phonetically as well...I mean, really, what would they do when they come across a word they had never seen before but perhaps heard it spoken along the way?
