"Rashmi, all of geometry seems to go back to the circle. I start with the circle and introduce it as unity (Whole) as well as a unit. Then we explore that properties of a 3-D circle by observation; not from books that only talk about circles as a…"
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.
"Shahzad, I have not found there is one place to go to showcase new discoveries in mathematics. Math is too big and fragmented, and solidified as a discipline, particularly in the educational field. I would question Colins statement about " the…"

"(-)+(-)= (+)
Since movement is a right angle function; one line added to one line, when combined at right angles is a plus sign.
(-)+(+)=(-) the second line is missing to make a plus sign, so it remains one line.
(+)+(-)=(-) this is simply the…"
"The only true way two negatives will ever make a positive is for us to make friends with our enemies. That said, let's look at it another way. When we fold a circle in half we put any two imaginary points together and crease. This give us a…"
I find confusion when trying to understand the principles behind Mathematics. If we can not be clear about the principles that regulate the subject we teach how can we expect students to understand? Some clarification from math educators would be helpful.
"All the information that is being done in the above activities can easily be achieved by a simply process of folding the circle (doing) and observing (seeing) with attention to the information generated and discussing with others the observations…"
"What I hear are attempts to think anew within confines of what is already in place in the social mind of how we define mathematics and education . It is based on a curriculum that is fragmented and strewn with isolated pieces of information. We can…"
There is a growing need to learn math for those who have had a bad experience with math in the past, or who have been away from math for a long time.I am interested in improved techniques for teaching math to this group of people.See More
"The math I understand did not start with formulas, logic proofs, text books; I did not like that stuff. Math came from my own experience in observing patterns in my life; loosely called art, nature, informal kinds of geometry that informed me about…"
Welcome to Mathematics 24x7. The purpose of this network is to just talk about all possibilities in Mathematics .There are people who love this subject and at the same time there are ones who are struggling for it.
Let us join our hands and look for creative ingredients to make it interesting for everybody.
Thanks for joining this network.
