A Story of Perseverance
Overall, Alex did well in math. But there were points where he struggled a bit and had to reach out for some help. He did the extra work to perform better in math and ended up with good grades.
"If I had materials like PicScience's workbooks when I was learning basic math, I think I would have had an easier time learning more advanced topics."
