Math problems involving time can make a
child’s love of learning come to an abrupt

solve their problems. “Practice” button shows how the digital clock
corresponds with the analog clock. So wherever you put the hands on
the clock, the digital clock version displays at the bottom. This is where
a teacher or parent can simply explain how and why the hands move,
etc. My daughter is good at showing 2:00, 3:00, etc. She can also do

game without any instruction and then after we practice. If you had to

an hour. If your child was tutored ONCE a week. That would cost $100-
$200 a month. That is $1200 to $2400 a year. Save that money for
