Stubborn Student
Luke is a math student in Ms. Stone's class. She emphasizes in the importance of showing the mathematical work on paper and not just relying on mental math. Sometimes this causes Luke to make mistakes, as Algebraic procedures can involve many steps. Luke seems to be reluctant to listen and doesn't follow the recommendations Ms. Stone gives. She has talked to him and tried to help him understand the reasons behind her suggestions.
What should Ms. Stone do to help Luke follow her procedures and show his work on paper?

I believe Ms. Stone should reward him for showing work on paper. Same goes for the rest of the class. I believe if he has an incentive to show work he would be more willing.

Ms. Stone should allow Luke to write his answer, and then go back and have him show how he did it. Maybe for tests you could accommodate him and have him tell you the answers if thats how he does best.
