Tips for Tutoring Algebra
Algebra worksheets are perfect study tools for blossoming mathematicians. If your child needs extra help working through algebraic equations, try these helpful tips:
- Give your child a quiet space to work on his printable algebra worksheets. This could be a desk, the dinner table, or even a portable clipboard and an armchair. Make sure that your child has a couple of pencils, an eraser, and a pencil sharpener nearby.
- Sit with your child and solve the first few problems together. Have your child work through the first problem. If he gets stuck, prompt him to tell you why.
- Show your child how you would solve the algebra problem. Make sure to write down each step and explain what you are doing as you are doing it. Check in with your child after each step to make sure he understands what you did.
- Have your child try the next problem with your supervision. Show him how to check his answer by 'plugging in' the value of the variable. For example, if your child is solving the equation 6 + x = 10 for x, he might come up with the answer 16. Have your child 'plug in' the value of the variable by replacing x with 16 in the original problem, to make 6 + 16 = 10. Since 6 + 16 does not equal 10, your child will see that he has come up with the wrong value for the variable, and need to reattempt the original equation.
