Question:

Simplifying fractions such as 32/4 or, if this was a word problem: if Johnny has 32 apples that he wants to divide between 4 friends, how many apples does each friend get?

I always start out with a simple(r) example: if I have 1 apple that I want to share with 2 friends, how much of the apple does each friend get? And then I will use a visual aid (or ask your child to grab a couple visual aids) to demonstrate. I can take a piece of paper to represent the apple, and split it in half to show how it can be divided between two people. Then, I will give your child a couple more examples and ask them to solve them (to demonstrate understanding) before asking them to solve the actual problem.

Question:

A typical college admission will have 2 essay portions: 1) a personal statement, and 2) a problem-solving question where you are asked to provide a solution to a problem.

In this instance, I will ask your child what the specific questions per school are. I will ask them questions to guide their thinking (ex. why did you pick this school? What makes you special or unique? What hobbies do you have?) We can talk out what kind of issue or problem they would like to solve (ex. what do you think is the biggest problem in the world today?). We might create charts or columns to jot down ideas. Then, I will ask your child to write these essays out, and we will go from there.
