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 do not envy the challenge you face, and lament that these requirements are what (in my view) has lead math to become more of a "learn it quickly" than "learn it well" exercise in many school districts. I have taught math on and…"
"I don't know if you have already tried this, but my first inclination would be as follows.
College level students should be developmentally better at conceptualizing, so I totally understand and agree with your concern. Tactile visuals may not…"
"Yes to all of the above. Help each student find success, respect their past experiences while not letting them get in your way. Bring the world into the math classroom... some possible examples are:
Marbles rolling along a hard floor should be…"
"I cited the walking example as a way to try help someone understand *why* a double negative is a positive. The rules you cite certainly are often used in life, but if a young student is questioning why the rules are true in the first place... well,…"
"I prefer and expanded version of the (brief) number line explanation that was given:
- Multiplication represent repeated addition, so (3) x (5) represents three fives added together
- To represent this on the number line, I start at 0 then move…"
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 all possibilities to make it interesting for everybody.
Looking forward to your valuable sharings
