265: Nix The Tricks

Dear Students:
  • Which of the following "tricks" was helpful to you in learning and understanding what was going on?
  • Which ones just got you confused when the problem changed form slightly?
  • Did you ever confuse $\dfrac{3}{5}x\dfrac{1}{5}$ with $\dfrac{3}{5} = \dfrac{x}{5}$ with $\dfrac{3}{5} + \dfrac{1}{4}$?

Which "tricks" should teachers stop using?
