Study support for a junior high school student who has difficulty with solving graphic problems and word problems
This study is a case report of the cognitive counseling for a student who has difficulty with solving graphic and word problems. The student in this study was a boy of a junior high school first grader. He felt the difficulty in some arithmetic problems. He didn’t know how to solve graphic problems and word problems. He could solve computational problems fast, but he often made careless mistakes through the process of solving the problems. To reduce his troubles in arithmetic, we supported his learning based on three points. The first point, we explained to him formulas of figures to present figures made of paper. The second point, we supported his troubles in word problems by using charts to understand word problems. The third point, we tried to make his habits of review arithmetic problems after he finished them. This study, we could solve his troubles in graphic problems. However, we could not support enough having his strategy to solve word problems and making habits of review to reduce mistakes. He will master using charts with solving word problems and making habits of review when understanding the role of them in arithmetic problems.
