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!
