### A Beginner's Guide for Teaching Mathematics

• 1. A Beginner’s Guide for Teaching Mathematics Content Curation Investigation This assignment was made possible by:
• 2. NATURE OF MATHEMATICS • Mathematics is practical. • Mathematics is a language. • Mathematics is derived from real life. • Mathematical knowledge is abstract.
• 3. METHODS OF TEACHING MATHEMATICS • Teaching and Learning – no easy task – complex process. • Each pupil is an individual with a unique personality. • Pupils acquire knowledge, skills and attitudes at different times, rates and ways. • Eight general teaching methods for math: • For effective teaching use a combination of these methods: 1. Co-operative learning 2. Exposition 3. Guided discovery 4. Games 5. Laboratory approach 6. Simulations 7. Problem solving 8. Investigations
• 4. HOW MATH CURRICULUM CAN BE USED TO MEASURE INTELLEGENCE • Should we be making use of a different measuring implement for intelligence?Your homeschool syllabus lets the flexibility of integrating aspects of this philosophy into all of your training in all subjects. • Using the various intelligence theory with your homeschool math curriculum is particularly effective for the reason that math is often the most perplexing subject to teach as well as learn. Most of the kids will usually exhibit more than one of these. Linguistic-Auditory Intelligence 1. Your child loves to read, compose, recite, as well as talk. 2. Children feel most contented curled up with a book or listening to or telling a story. 3. Integrate stories like "The Seven Swans" or "TheTwelve Months" into primary grade number acknowledgment lessons, and word problems are an indispensable ingredient at all levels.
• 5. CONT. Linguistic-Auditory Intelligence 1. Your child loves math and are also good at problem-solving, different patterns, and likes to conduct scientific trials. 2. Concentrate on the relationship amid patterns and numbers, which is geometric forms and numbers, such as the triangle and the number 3, the square plus the number 4, etc. 3. Use number "tricks" to boost and pep up math practice, and point out outlines in the time's tables, influences, etc. 4. Relate math notions to some of those science experimentations.
• 6. EFFECTIVE TEACHING STRATEGIES : A simple strategy teachers can use to improve math skills is repetition. By repeating and reviewing previous formulas, lessons and information, students are better able to comprehend concepts at a faster rate. : Taking a short test and then grading the test in class will help teachers assess student understanding.When the test shows that students are answering more questions correctly within the time period, teachers are able to determine that students have mastered the basic skills. : Group work is a simple strategy that allows students to work and problem solve with a buddy.When a teacher has provided the basic instruction, it’s helpful to split the class into pairs or groups to work on problems. : Manipulation tools make it easier for students to learn and understand basic skills.These are ideal when students learn best through hands-on experience and building rather than traditional lessons and repetition. : Reinforcing the information learned in class is not always the easiest task for teachers, but math games provide the opportunity to make the lesson interesting and encourage students to remember the concepts.
• 7. KEY PRINCIPLES FOR EFFECTIVE TEACHING OF MATHEMATICS Principle 1: Identify key ideas that underpin the concepts you are seeking to teach, communicate to the students that these are the goals of the teaching and explain to them how you hope they will learn. Principle 2: Build on what students know, mathematically and experientially, including creating and connecting students with stories that both contextualise and establish a rationale for the learning. Principle 3: Engage students by utilising a variety of rich and challenging tasks that allow students time and opportunity to make decisions, and which use a variety of forms of representation. Principle 4: Interact with students while they engage in the experiences, encourage learners to interact with each other, including asking and answering questions, and specifically plan to support students who need it and challenge those who are ready. Principle 5: Adopt pedagogies that foster communication and both individual and group responsibilities, use students reports to the class as learning opportunities, with teacher summaries of key mathematical ideas. Principle 6: Fluency is important, and it can be developed in two ways: by short everyday practices of mental processes; and by practice, reinforcement and prompting transfer of learned skills.
