Maths all around you – shining a mathematical spotlight on where you live « ICT for Teaching & Learning in Falkirk Primary Schools

Maths all around you – shining a mathematical spotlight on where you live « ICT for Teaching & Learning in Falkirk Primary Schools | Mathematics | Scoop.it
Mr. Alexander O'Connor's insight:

Maths is all around you is about encouraging students to take their mathematics learning into the outside world. This blog not only outlines just how brilliant maths in the outside is but also has a lot of great links to websites to help with this concept. This is an important innovation because as outlines in http://gettingsmart.com/2013/12/4-tools-connect-students-real-world-math/ unless the mathematics has been connected to a real world source instead of just a list of problems in a textbook the learning can be very short lived.

Jokes add fun to maths tasksConnex Education

Jokes add fun to maths tasksConnex Education | Mathematics | Scoop.it
Students have been learning maths through jokes, magic tricks, video clips and brain-teasers as part of a new focus on the subject at their college.

Mr. Alexander O'Connor's insight:

Using humor in all teaching works very well to help the brain engage and the frontal lobe retain the information. As shown in the in-depth article on http://www.middleweb.com/5053/humor-in-the-classroom/ many doctors and professors of the field agree. This article goes through the points made by several key figures such as Sidney Harris, a man who has made maths fun through cartoons for years. As well as this it will give the students a reason to remember the maths behind it so that when they want to relay the jokes to their classmates they will want to get it right.
