This allows the students to be productive with students of a different culture. Students performed math problems with students who may have learned certain things differently than them. This acknowledges the progress of students learning from each other and working as one. The mathematics teacher also provided his students every opportunity to ask questions and tackle any problem that they needed help with. The diversity of the group brings out different approaches to confront any math problem.
Math is useful in my career, because I will be responsible for teaching young children the fundamentals of Math which they will need to understand. The children will rely on the teacher to transmit the information which is necessary in their formative years. In addition, being able to understand and solve mathematical problems is not only necessary and important for me but also the young minds that I will help to develop. Math is also very necessary for day to day functions. Many people would say that they do not see how Math is necessary to certain aspects of life; although it is being used every day.
Measures such as these require a translation of the complete misunderstanding of the concept contained in the matter. This resulted in learning difficulties among some students. Problems and difficulties are likely to be addressed through the use of a computer (calculator). Based on the objectives of the seventh, which uses hardware and software technologies that are appropriate to build conceptual understanding, mastering math skills and problem-solving, is compatible with the argument that will be deliberated in this paper.
Concrete manipulatives allow for learners to understand concepts before creating connections. Concrete manipulatives also encouraged to be used with learners wo have learning disabilities which makes them understand key concepts even better (Deborah 2004:11). As learners progress in mathematics, they also go through the different stages of using concrete manipulatives. Stage 1 is known as the Concrete Stage; Learners use concrete manipulative extensively when participating in mathematics tasks. For example learners use a lot of counters to perform addition and subtraction bonds.
The teacher should never give up trying to help the students succeed in Mathematics. The teacher needs to give specific examples and applications of Mathematics. The teacher should review basic Mathematics skills with the students. c- Learning mathematics is a building block process. Each step builds on another one.
When it comes to the language of math, it can become confusing because a simple word in English may have a different meaning in math. This is another task teachers need to take upon themselves to teach. This ways students will understand their math problems better if they understand the vocabulary. For some students it may not be that difficult to figure out what the vocabulary stands for in math. For instance, word problems sometimes sound like a complete foreign language and you have to dissect how to solve the problem.
Business involves analysing every detail using logic and objective reasoning in making a competent decision. With the progression of technology leading into the future, both the theoretical and practical aspects of IT and business are combined, which makes it extremely appealing to me, as both are so closely integrated. My analytical and problem-solving nature stems from my study of A-level Mathematics, where complicated equations must be assessed and logical steps are needed to be taken to solve problems statistically. I believe my study of Math’s is extremely important in business as it can be used to give an understanding of how to interpret and use financial data. My passion and curiosity in increasing knowledge in the field of Mathematics lead me to
Students use math skills not only in math classes, but also in other classes such as chemistry, physics, and economics. By teaching students spatial reasoning skills at a young age, they have the ability to acquire the necessary math skills to achieve in higher-level math classes and math-related career fields. Spatial reasoning is an essential aspect of math education. By acquiring spatial reasoning skills, students also acquire mental rotation, visual spatial reasoning, and spatial vocabulary. Students are taught to think about how an object will look if they rotate it before they do it.
Part B Introduction The importance of Geometry Children need a wealth of practical and creative experiences in solving mathematical problems. Mathematics education is aimed at children being able to make connections between mathematics and daily activities; it is about acquiring basic skills, whilst forming an understanding of mathematical language and applying that language to practical situations. Mathematics also enables students to search for simple connections, patterns, structures and rules whilst describing and investigating strategies. Geometry is important as Booker, Bond, Sparrow and Swan (2010, p. 394) foresee as it allows children the prospect to engage in geometry through enquiring and investigation whilst enhancing mathematical thinking, this thinking encourages students to form connections with other key areas associated with mathematics and builds upon students abilities helping students reflect
Background to the study Mathematics is an important subject of study that is given much priority in school curricula worldwide. Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) opines that the universe cannot be read until we have learned the language and become familiar with the characters in which it is written. He postulates further that the universe is written in mathematical language, and that the letters are triangles, circles and other geometrical figures, without which means it will be humanly impossible to comprehend a single word. Without these, one is assumed to be wandering about in a dark labyrinth (Marcus, 2010). Mathematics is considered as one of the fundamental subjects of education due to the numerous benefits it provides to human life.
