Personal Experiences: My mentor teacher used a strategy: Let’s let students teach adults and see the comprehension level of their math. Also I remember the guest speaker, Mr. Jamie Burla from Rundle Academy spoke about how they use whiteboards for students. I decided to apply those ideas at home.
My fiance is taking an engineering course and he studies a lot of math related problems…..Before his exams, he is always worried if he understands everything. One day, I gave him a whiteboard and asked him to teach me what he has learned. Of course I don’t understand what he is trying to teach, but he was able to organize on whiteboard and he seemed confident when he saw what he wrote on whiteboard (picture above).
