What is the easiest way to not get distracted or bored when assigned textbook pages to read and take notes on?
I find that you need to first find something that motivates you. For some students, this may be something as simple as food, a tv show, or being able to answer their phone/social media. If you use this as a reward it will prompt you to stay on task and finish in less time. For instance, a student of mine used to read her history book and for every section, she read there were an M and M waiting at the bottom for her to eat. The focus is finding something that you want and then making it the reward to be an incentive.
If n is a positive integer divisible by 7, and if n is less than 70, what is the greatest possible value of n?
The greatest possible value is 63. When looking at multiples of the number 7, I can tell 70 is the multiple of 10x7. Therefore, if I subtract 7 from a multiple, I can get the correct answer. 70-7=63.
What would be the easiest yet most formal way to write a thesis statement?
I tend to lean towards this basic formula. All it is would be saying first the opposing claim, then placing a semicolon, and concluding with however followed by a comma and your claims. For instance, for an essay on what personality teaches students best I would approach it like this: Many educational courses and teachers choose to portray a strict and formal personality approach to teaching; however, I find it most important to remain open-minded as I can also improve, patient because nothing is solved with the speed of panic, and persistent as to aid the student in perseverance themselves.
