Mathematics 24x7

There is no escape...believe it or not. Mathematics is everywhere.

# Introducing Math Concepts

## Information

The objective of setting this group is to aggregate ideas and strategies for introducing a Mathematics concept in a classroom at all levels. I think right start would definitely help in making lesson easy to understand as well as interesting.

I have a suggestion to contributors to the group: make more use of the "Start a Discussion" link. I think that will keep the content more organised, than using comments to the main page of the group. (Colin McAllister)

Assuming the concept is related to other concepts we have studied, I explain how it fits in a larger picture.  For example, when I introduce inverse functions, I explain how they are special and how they are like other types of functions and how they are different.  I also give a look-ahead to explain why we need to know about inverse functions when we study logarithmic and exponential functions.
