DAY SIX 28 SEPTEMBER 2013

28 SEPTEMBER 2013

 Logic and mathematics are nothing but specialised linguistic structures. 
-Jean Piaget 

Friday, 27th September 2013, Elementary Mathematics brought us closer to Art.


We hunt for an artwork that can create a series of interdisciplinary lessons; for group assignment.  And we learn how to appreciate art, of course. 


Saturday, the last day of EDU 330 Elementary Mathematics with Dr Yeap Ban Har. 



Dr Yeap actually showed us the easy division that will be useful for struggling learners.

354       / 3 = 100 + 10 + 8 = 118
/     /     /                                               
300 30 24                                                  

Here is a video I have watched for the simple division,

                 
                   

SALUTE!
Great game for multiplication.
The person standing in front of the two people who are holding the cards has to sum up both cards.
The two people holding the cards have to figure out their numbers.


I love getting hands-on.  
This time around we have to create a rectangular box few times bigger than the box we received.  


Note taken: When teaching children shapes, show children the thin ones like tangrams.

Quote for the day, 
"Mathematics is an excellent vehicle for the development and improvement  of a person's intellectual competencies."

I found this Math website, maybe teachers can view it;
