Mathematics and Science can never separate themselves from
the scrutiny of workbooks. These are not subjects that you take lightly and
understand overnight. Workbooks are very effective measures in enhancing the
knowledge base of your students. With this in mind, here are ten ways to use
workbooks with your clients!
The primary use of workbooks is for enrichment. They contain activities that reflect the current topic you are discussing with the student. Assign a few pages every now and then to allow the student to develop a clearer understanding of the subject matter at hand.
2. Advanced Reading
3. Useful Testing Material
Workbooks make great testing material, especially since they reflect the totality of the subject matter at hand. Use this to your advantage to really ensure that your students understand the topic in totality.
4. Case Study Analysis
You can take some questions, especially science-related ones, and derive case studies. Let your students analyse how the process came to be or what measures must be taken to realize a certain concept.
5. Scenario Integration
Take some examples from the workbook and create an interactive scenario where your students can definitely relate to. This will enhance the learning process and also provide them with a smoother understanding of the topic material at hand.
6. Reverse Analysis
This is very useful for mathematical problems. Try to let your students solve workbook problems in reverse. This will allow them to develop correlative thinking, which is necessary in associating variables in mathematics.
7. Supplemental Exercises
Workbook exercises can be simple add-ons to a certain topic, especially with the material present. You can let your students answer them in class so that they understand the concepts better.
8. Memory Recall Games
9. Missing Piece Analysis
This is very effective for both math and science problems. If you take out one variable in a workbook problem, what happens next? That’s the key analysis strategy that your students must learn to realize. This introduces effective analyses and developmental thinking.
10. Role Presence
Lastly, role presence allows the student to engage in the problem with the mind set that he or she is part of the problem. This is very relatable for science problems and even some math problems.
Workbooks are very effective ways to help your clients learn the material more readily. With these ten dynamic ways to do so, you can enjoy the comfort knowing your students are willing to cooperate with these strategies for the betterment of their education.
