Still very much in the rough-draft stage...
...but I'm starting on a video series targeted at students who are trying to study for the SAT but are too far behind to get much out of the standard prep materials. You can check out the early efforts here.
I would suggest writing the type of step you are doing next to each line e.g.ReplyDelete
convert to same base 2^(k+2) = (2^3)^k
simplify 2^(k+2) = 2^(3k)
How about finish off with one they can try themselves and leave a gap and then work through it.
The other thing is you may have to remind them about the order of operations.
