"If A equals success, then the formula is A equals X plus Y plus Z.
X is work. Y is play. Z is keep your mouth shut."
You're not going to get anywhere with either your teacher or your mom by criticizing/blaming your teacher. Let the adults talk. You just sit & listen. (Yes, I mean even if the teacher is not a great teacher!) If they ask you something, then speak. Otherwise, listen.
Here's some great sites to help you with your math. I like the Cool Math site the best.

here is what you do, you stay for after school tutoring so your teacher can make a good comment to your mom about effort. Ask a lot of questions because that shows that your interested. Do all your homework so your teacher doesn't complain about lack of assignments being turned in. Be good in class, don't talk and don't daydream. If you do that, your teacher will think that that's the reason you don't understand the lesson. Do extra homework, and show it to your teacher, so she know that your actually making an effort. Look at the teavher when she's teaching, she will notice that you're listening. Ask questions about the night befores homework.

You should say something to the teacher and tell them bluntly I don't understand. I would want my students to tell me they don't understand, and I have had my students in my maths class tell me they don't understand my explanation. Teachers need to be told and I suggest you tell him. If you just try and impress him then it wont do you any good because you still will not understand anything. Understanding is the most important thing. Somethimes you could also ask a friend to help you as well, they may be able to explain what you don't understand in a language you do understand.Source(s): student teacher
