[EN] Education strategies
Taped problems

Objective :
Improving math abilities and math fluency with basic calculations
Intended population :
Children (7-11 y.o.) with math difficulties or as a first intention. Individualy or in groups.
Evidence level :
Case-study / Correlationnal studies / Pre-experimental studies

Briefly :
1. Create a sheet with 10-20 boxes for answers.
2. Record simple math problems, of appropriate difficutly, then add a 0-5 seconds pause and record the answer

3. Make the student listen to the tape
4. The student should "beat the tape", or answer on the paper before he/she hears the answer

5. If the answer is correct, quickly confirm and reinforce the child or correct the answer otherwise
6. Repeat 2-3 times and reduce the delay over future tries

Potential mechanisms :
The short delay prevents the use of slowest and less automatic strategies
Instant feedback prevents a wrong answer from being memorized
Quick positive reinforcement
The longest an exercize is, the highest the anxiety a student could have
