We started class with a “mind reading” game.
|Think of two numbers|
The game was attention-grabbing. The learning outcome children will be able:
1 ü to practice subtraction
ü See the pattern
ü Communication skill
I agree with Prof Yeap's thought that to teach Maths the teacher’s role is very important. During my maths era, my teachers taught multiplication not using Bruner Theory (if they had , I would have done better). Most of the teachers during my days in school were basically using their previous knowledge to teach us Maths. Even today, I explain Maths to my children using my previous method.
Something new : I would like to say this sentence when I am teaching my child next time.
¾ / 3 = ¼
3 fourth shared equally among 3 = 1 fourth
The geoboard is a good therapeutic way to end the class as we were getting engrossed in designing a shape but the rule was to leave just one dot. Reminded me of our kolam (a form of painting that is drawn using rice)
Maths is making connection. Keep connected
