Rationale for a maths activity using 3D shapes

In the first year of QTS, for my placement I was allocated a place in a multi- cultural school, in a year 5 class. Having been in this class for a few months, I was now familiar with the class routines, the teaching staff and the children. I was also aware that at the end […]

Children learning Mathematics

The placement for the second year of my course, took me to a small village school; the class I was assigned too, covered two-year groups, in total 37 children of varying abilities. The stage of mathematics that the teacher required me to teach was an average attainment group in year five. The subject I planned […]

Mathematics

The origins of mathematics come from the classical Greeks and then those scholars prior to Augustus in Rome. Also the Arabs and Egyptians along side the Hebrews and Babylonians were making many advances. Amongst all of them they invented the decimal point, pi, the place holder and our current numerals. During the Renaissance in Europe […]

Comparing Math and Biology

Math and Biology Math is one of the most important subjects to learn in school. Math is a subject that a lot of people seem to have problems with and the one that seems to get to a lot of people. But math is also one of the most helpful for certain careers having to […]

Tabulation System

The development of technology, in terms of computing, have unexpectedly altered the means of making the world a better place to live into something far greater. From old to modern computing systems, things have become more convenient and accurate – in terms of tracking progress, communication, etc. – and are still unceasingly discovering new innovations, […]

Solving Math vs Comprehension

The problem is the failure of the Grade VII students section B of Davao Winchester Colleges, Inc. with regard to the analysis of mathematical word problems due to poor reading comprehension skills. The class is composed of 28 students (17 boys and 11 girls) with 25% identified above average performing level which means ? of […]

Langauge Model for Mathematics

The construction of a fundamental understanding of numeration and place value concepts forms the foundation for all additional branches of mathematics (Booker, et al. , 2010). Computational processes and patterns of thinking require a clear understanding of these concepts, as they underpin the learning and use of mathematics (Booker et al. , 2010). Developing mathematical […]

Mathematics

Math has been around for quiet a long time. We all see math in a different way some can grasp it and some cannot. Learning math concept is very frustrating some will master it and some want. I have struggle with math myself. In fact, every time the word math was said throughout my school […]

Exploring Student Engagement Through Teacher’s

I carried out an action research project at State School, involving four of Year 5 students. The primary purpose of my research was to see whether teacher scaffolding practices support students’ Mathematics learning. The target group for this research was Year 5 weaker students in Mathematics. This research took place during Mathematics problem-solving group activity. […]

Transfer

After four months of carefully studying the current economic situation, I have decided to major in mathematics. I have been consistently following Financial and economic reports in the Wall street journal and I have keenly observed that financial experts and many scholars anticipate that the economic situation at the moment and in the near future […]
