Teaching in Secondary School

Of couse I knew the subject very well but I had considerable difficulty in persuading the young boys to think logicaly when solving problems rather than working to the answer decided to deal with the matter in a special way. Whenever I marked their seripts (whethe homework or tests), Iwould award some marks to those who tackled the problems logically but ended up with the wrong answer due to some error(s) on the way. However, those who presented illogical steps but ended up writing down the correct answer were scored zero. It took some tìme and effort but, I believe, the message gradually sank in.

The members of the council treated my suggestion as a joke; however it was intended to draw attention to a veryunsatisfactory situation.”
