Reply To: 2.3 – Number Sense Strategies
One of the strategies that I use most is group work, students like to share ideas and develop tasks in classes with their classmates. I also like to ask those faster students to do their homework that are guardians of those who require help, that way they feel useful in the classroom and can use their remaining time in helping others.
Another thing that I like to do a lot is to ask other teachers to be able to do work in sets where students must integrate different skills, both in mathematics with science, mathematics with arts, mathematics with language, etc. It is a concrete way to show students that mathematics serve in everyday life and that they are not just a set of abstract ideas.
