I think some times the teachers themselves are to blame. [ not all the time]
If a teacher doesn't explain the the "how to" to figure a problem out, then of course it's hard for a student to understand.
Back when I was in school, in the 5th grade I had Spanish class. Fun too.......
However, we had to move to another region of the country and there I had to wait until 10th grade to take Spanish.
And the teacher I had was terrible. I learned more from my 5th grade teacher than my 10th grade teacher. Two totally different ways of teaching. The
first teacher was a hell of a lot better than the second one.
The only thing I can think of is that maybe a teacher assumes the kids should already know something when in actuality, they don't. So therefore the
teacher skips a few important details. Or they are not articulate in the explanation.
