Core Maths – layout

November 3, 2019

One thing I’ve realised I need to work on more is how to help students lay their work out.

Here’s an example:

This is, obviously, very hard to follow.

I had tried to impress upon them a structure along these lines:

  • What are your assumptions/simplifications?
  • What do you need to know?
  • What are your estimates for those things?
  • What calculations are you going to do with them?

It can be a useful guide to an estimation question but it doesn’t really get to the nitty-gritty of how to lay your work out.

Something to work on then…
