Subject: Re: Problem solving

I ask students to write out a solution as though they are trying to explain it to someone who doesn't quite understand the problem. In a sense they become the teacher and need to include the details about why they did what they did in order for someone else to learn how to do it. This method usually makes sense to a student. I hope this helps! -Kristina, for the Teacher2Teacher service Visit us again at http://mathforum.com/t2t/
