On the first day of each month the canteen cooks hamburgers. The Cook needs 1/10 of a kg of mince, 1/8 of a lettuce and 1/5 of a lettuce for each burger. How much of each item does the Cook need to have on hand if every student (except 5) order a hamburger? It takes Principal Jones 20 minutes to walk from his house to the school. If he walks to the school in the morning and home in the afternoon. How long will he walk in total in 1 school week? How long will he walk in total in a 9 week term? The school day starts at 9:00 a.m. First break is from 11:00 a.m to 11:20 a.m. The second break is from 1:00 p.m to 1:40 p.m. The school day finishes at 3:00 p.m. How much time do the students spend in class in one day? How much time do the students spend in class in one week? How much time do the students spend on break in one day? How much time do the students spend on break in one week?
A lot of teachers I know use worksheets for different purposes and when used effectively, it can be a good filler or fulfill the purpose of what you want to teach. A good handout always supplements the lesson. You need to pre-teach material and information before it is to be processed via a handout. When these are given too much emphasis however, students can become demotivated by the learning process, which in turn, lowers their self-esteem. You obviously want to avoid this.
I believe the program I have created can solve the problem of how to teach math concepts through play. It provides a clear and progressive framework but also needs the commitment of a parent or teacher to guide, direct and pose the challenges that will create a stimulating, stress free but highly challenging learning environment. Are you ready to make that commitment? If you are you may be as surprised to discover just as I did that learning math can be extremely fulfilling on many levels. I really hope you are interested enough to read my next article as we take a close look at the math model your child will need to play with every day.
