Chapter 1 – Teaching Mathematics in the 21st Century

As an educator, there are principles and standards that can guide us when we are teaching Mathematics to the children.

We must give equal chances to the children and also rendering assistance to them. To allow the children to grasp better, we must always teach the children to see Mathematics as in integrated rather that isolation. Nothing is much more critical as a teacher who teaches Numeracy that is to know the content very well before we can teach the children well too. We also need to do assessments as it allows us to check on the student’s understandings and how we can guide them further. With the changing landscape of education, we need to use technology when we are teaching Numeracy to the children. These tools will help the children to focus on the mathematical ideas and finding solutions.

“To teach effectively a teacher must develop a feeling for his subject; he cannot make his students sense its vitality if he does not sense it himself. He cannot share his enthusiasm when he has not enthusiasm to share. How he makes his point may be as important as the point he makes; he must personally feel it to be important. George Polya
