I would walk the student through the process of borrowing. I like to use manipulative such as money to help the students understand the process. For instance, I would use 100 dollar bills, 10 dollar bill, and 1 dollar bill to help students understand the process of moving from the one to the hundreds place while maintaining the same values.

What is an EPD?
EPD's or Expected Progeny Differences are estimates of the genetic value of an animal that predict the expected performance difference of the offspring of an animal within the same breed. For instance when comparing the Weaning Weight EPD of two animals. If the first animal has a Weaning Weight EPD of 30 and the second has a Weining weight EPD of 27. You would expect the offspring of the first animal to weight 3 pounds more at weaning than the offspring of the second animal.
Most students have an identity, an interest, or a talent that defines them in an essential way. Tell us about yourself.
Helping others to reach their full potential through education is a talent that I uncovered as I began my journey in education. Being successful in school is dependent upon gaining the skills needed to master the material and practicing those skills. My talent is helping students to master the needed skills and believe that they can achieve success in school.
