If you are not sure what level to start at, aim low, start with easy numbers and see how your child goes, the self-esteem boost they will get from acing the first worksheet will give them confidence for more difficult math problems.
Many people think that showing a student once how to correct the mistake and having them practice that one problem is sufficient. WRONG! It will take having the student do hundreds of similar problems correctly with constant supervision to replace the incorrect method in the brain. Many freshmen enter Algebra with learned multiplication mistakes-the most common of which is 7 x 8 = 54. (I will trust that you know the correct answer is 56.)

And the Algebra teacher does not have the time it takes to fix these errors.
