Proving One’s Ability vs.
Improving One’s Ability
Should homework allow students to benefit from their effort, not just their ability to achieve the correct answers?

Get It Guide Math Tutorials use effective questions to deconstruct and break down a math problem into simpler steps. Students work through the problem step-by-step; determining the solution steps they understand and identifying any solution steps they do not feel confident performing.
