Tips for Teachers
This tutorials is meant to allow student to go at their own pace. I have had good success with the tutorial under the following conditions:
- The class has already been introduced to the role of units and are familiar with basic metric and English units.
- Students should be required to write down solved problems and not just use the tutorial. The tutorial gives them feedback on how they are doing, but they must transfer the learning to pencil and paper. The worksheet below prompts them to do this.
- I advise giving them the worksheet for one level and having them turn it in to you before moving on to the next level. This allows the teacher to see if they are really canceling units.
