Lastly, I feel that this course has provided me with information and resources to plan for an enriching mathematics lesson for my children. Also, it made me realise the need to constantly provide children with opportunity to imagine, visualize and problem solve the thinking process. For instance, when I was teaching my N2 children about shapes using their body, I asked them to think about forming a circle using their body. The children came up with two ideas in total.
The second method:
One of the children suggested using hands to form a circle.
After the lesson, it really made me feel that it is important for children to problem solve themselves as they will be able to conceptualize concepts and create their own understanding of ideas. thus, they would be better able to grasp the concept further and build a stronger foundation at the end of the day. As the saying goes, it is the process and not the product that is important.
