Can computers help us in math areas?
Without a shadow of a doubt any Ill-tech gizmos lean lend us a hand with mathematical problems. It can be clearly seen at university when students are often required to calculate an enormous amount of data. Thanks to some softwares installed in the computer, any undergrads can freeze through the calculation process by simply inputting the data and then after some minutes of, waiting, the problems are solved by the computer. The role of human participation in this process is to check whether the method used is correct, the calculation rest with the machine itself.
What it the first subject learned by children in childhood?
If I remember rightly, the very first subject that every child is taught is dictation. It’s a module in the mother language subject. In this, kids are required to write down the words clearly and slowly pronounced by the teachers without committing blunder regarding grammar or spelling. This also trains children in calligraphy as they are told to write down beautifully the characters spoken by the teacher, which helps them have eat handwriting and meticulousness.
What methods can be applied to make math class more interesting?
In my opinion, I’d strongly recommend that teachers Relate the math lessons to real life issues! Say, how they should add or multiply a sum when they go shopping in the market, or the homework should consist of more real-life problems, less on theoretical knowledge so as to kindle the interest of the kids. Another approach worthy of consideration is that schools should organize some field trips to certain places such as the market so that they can apply the knowledge acquired at school into practical issues.
How do schools teach math in your country?
In my country, teachers often focus more on the transmission of theoretical knowledge father than prioritizing the practical aspects of the subjects! Students are required to cram huge amounts of formulas and theorems, which are only useful in solving theoretical problems, It’s saddening to say that most people are weak when it comes to applying the knowledge obtained from maths into real-life issues.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of using calculator?
A calculator is especially useful in working out a maths problem that involves big data, and if students calculate the sum manually, it may take half an hour. By simply inputting the figures into the calculator! the Solution pops up right in front of you! However, the drawback of over reliance on calculator is that students may forget how to perform simple calculation formulas! or become slow in mental calculations. So if children want to be sharp in their calculation, they should less rely on calculators for simple calculations.
When do kids in your country start to learn math?
Quite early, I’d have to say. Math forms the foundation of many other science so the importance of teaching maths is recognized by governments worldwide. Kids in primary school start to familiarize themselves with the multiplication table and the methods to solve basic calculations. The process may start as early as when the kid reaches grade 1.
