When I was a kid I also had a problem with fractions. The best advice that I can give you is that you have to address this problem inmediatly. Math is taught in through the years but each class is built on the previous one. Unlike history or other subjects that you can pretty much start from scratch every year, math is based a lot on the foundations. I have met a lot of people that disliked mathematics only because they did not have a good foundation in it (don't we all dislike the things we are not good at?), and it is my believe that if they had a better foundation, they will like it better.At that level the best you can do is to help her with homework, sit down with her and try to get the concepts to her, help her with the problems (but don't solve them for her- you want to help with homework - not do the homework!).Good luck
