Bang!Zoom! Posted September 13, 2012 Share Posted September 13, 2012 I was telling my daughter today that when I was in grammar school, we had to transcribe our math out of our books and onto paper. They didn't use copy machines. She sat and practiced it for a while, hated it at first, then grew a little more patient. After seeing how it affected her, I'm thinking, "Ya Baby, we NEED more of this" - it seemed to create errors/frustrations, but...it evolved into a new pattern of thinking for her, she grew more patient, slower, thoughtful. (All good things to be when working on math.) Does anyone else remember having to copy it all out of a book and onto a sheet of paper (using both sides- ALWAYS) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
