How do you help a good student become faster when working math problems? They get the right answer, but it takes them longer to do the problem than your average student. Is it just personality, or learning style, or do they just need more practice to become faster? Would love to hear feedback on this.
Teaching Math is more than just showing someone how to do the problem. It involves connecting with your students to make sure they understand the concepts being taught. You should read their face and body language to see if frustration is building. Then it's time to take a break and try a different approach. I like to use a technique I used when studying for Actuarial Exams. I would get an empty study room at the local college library, and pretend I was teaching the chairs. If my students can teach me what we have been working on, then I know they've got it. I would love to hear your ideas on what has worked for you in teaching a difficult concept.
