The power of drawing during a tutorial

When a child draws on their touch-screen their mind lights up connecting visuals with maths and understanding.

More useful even than writing on paper, a drawing on a touch-screen can be erased and redrawn lots of times with clarity.

If a child makes a mistake it is easy for the tutor to draw over it, correct it, then rub it out and ask the child to redraw and explain it as they go.

I have observed many times that by drawing a fraction, a percentage or a chart makes a huge difference in the child’s ability to not only understand a concept but to also recall it later.
