Taking the Struggle out of Teaching Basic Math

This workshop reviewed some basic strategies for School on Wheels tutors to help their student understand the concepts behind the four basic operations of adding, subtracting, long division, multi-digit multiplication, and multiplication facts (times tables). With these tips, tutors can assist students to work beyond memorization and increase confidence through understanding how math works and the relationships between the operations.
