combinations concept

I am doing a short research paper on how to teach combinations. Here
in Malaysia, we teach permutation and combination to students in Form
5 ( age of 17-18 ). Students always have problems with this topic. I
wonder if students in other countries facing this problem? How
teachers teach this topic effectively? Students always feel frustrated
when they fail to get the correct answers. I would like to investigate
if CAI can help by using the elaborative feedbacks to give extra
explanation. Could someone please give me some comments how to teach
this topic effectively? I greatly appreciate it.
