Stimulate Static Mathematics Learners

Learning mathematics has been an age-old challenge for students of all ages. I myself have had challenges in learning mathematics while growing up as a child. However, I have conquered such challenges. I am in a better position to help students who may appear to be static in learning math. The following resources will certainly give teachers firsthand knowledge in understanding how to teach students who may appear to be static in their learning of this wonderful subject.

    This Teacher’s Guide on Maths Lesson Plans is extremely helpful for teachers who are looking for ideas for creating interactive and student-centered lessons. I have used this Guide in tweaking my lesson plans according to the students’ needs. Also, this guide provides real-life situations so students can relate to the mathematical concepts.

    This site has various activities such as fun games, quizzes, video lessons, online tests, worksheets and printables to enhance the learning process. I am sure that students that appear to be static in their learning will certainly enjoy these activities. The fun activity will be selected based on the grade and topic for the students. I found this site interesting, simple, fun and interactive to use.

    It is important to note that parents play an integral role in stimulating the mathematical intelligence of their children. As educators, we have the responsibility to inform parents of their role in using hands-on tools at a very early age so that students can develop maths skills through play. This article highlights the different ways in which parents can make math come alive for their children.

    This article provides the different types of questioning techniques and the different levels of thinking that help to stimulate the mathematical thinking process. I enjoy using some of these questioning techniques in teaching Mathematics. As Educators, we are encouraged to make a concerted effort to use these questioning techniques.

    Static Instruction Is Just That - Static

    Being static means no movement or change. However, many times we are aware of students who are not learning Mathematics. This article drives home the point that learning in general calls for discovery, especially in teaching Mathematics. Learners are encouraged to explore and find answers for themselves and the teacher should provide the environment for discovery learning.

    This video provides vivid problems that happen in a typical Mathematics class, including that of giving answers and not giving the students the opportunity to think. As an educator, I encounter many students who will say “I hate Math.” Dan Finkel has helped me to see that I am not an answer key and that Math should be taught in an environment that incorporates play.
