# Learning Strengths: Map Readers and Explorers

I recognize Map Readers because they often like to work independently, but they are most comfortable when they have specifi c instructions or procedures to follow. Th ey often take more time and work deliberately, showing all their steps on homework or taking detailed notes in class or during group work. Explorers are the students who want to skip the detailed instructions and jump right into fi guring things out by trial and error. Th ese students are not likely to use estimation, even when required on homework, because they want to get right to the solving of the problem. When they make errors on tests, these students are often able to solve the problem correctly when I require them to talk me through the sequence of their calculations or write out all the steps. They also tend to understand and give good examples of concepts, but they need to be reminded that showing their work lets their brain focus on one thing at a time and reduces the errors they make.
