**How do students solve word problems?**

Helpful Approaches

- Provide daily problem-solving opportunities in the context of students’ lives.
- Practice specific skills such as determining the critical information without having students actually solve problems.
- Provide from the concrete, to the representational, to the abstract.
- Teach problem-solving strategies.

**What is the main goal of mathematics education?**

The aims of teaching and learning mathematics are to encourage and enable students to: recognize that mathematics permeates the world around us. appreciate the usefulness, power and beauty of mathematics. enjoy mathematics and develop patience and persistence when solving problems.

### Are mathematicians the smartest?

Physicists won hands down. The tally of 46 respondents—a dozen of them in physics-related fields—reveals that 40% rated physicists as the most intelligent. Mathematicians (11% of the sample) were favored by 15%, while chemists and biologists each captured 6% of the top votes.

**What is a thesis in math?**

### How do you teach equations to struggling students?

Helpful Tips

- Draw a line to separate the two sides of the equation.
- Do Undo Line – this is another strategy that can help students.
- Color-coding to help with combining like terms.
- Making sure to actually say (and make students say), “2 times x equals 5” as opposed to “2x = 5.”
