Today I had a student who though 7x - 7x =x

To translate he/she thought 7 times the variable x minus 7 times the variable x was 1 times x or x (see my article on The Secret Ninja Invisible One (http://inhometutoringhonolulu.com/index.php?topic=30.msg30#.mathtutoringtip))


When you tutor this type of problem you want to student to find the answer himself/herself. This understanding gives permanent learning and understanding as opposed to simply giving the answer. Use small numbers in the example so the student can think more of the process as opposed to large numbers.


I asked the student what 3(2) - 3(2) =

To translate that's 3 times 2 minus 3 times 2

The student said 0

I then asked the student what 7x - 7x was

He said 0.

Enjoy math. It's all around us.
