    Example 1
    My Pals Are Here! Mathematics Textbook 1A
  • 4. singaporemathinaction
    Think!
    What does the textbook suggest teachers do to teach numbers to 10? What is the content? What is the pedagogy?
    My Pals Are Here! Mathematics Textbook 1A
  • 5. singaporemathinaction
    Think!
    These are not suitable illustrations to teach the idea of 4. Why?
  • 6. singaporemathinaction
    ZoltanDiene’s Idea of Multiple Embodiment
  • 7. singaporemathinaction
    Content
    We count things that can belong to the same set. We count things having the same unit.
  • 8. singaporemathinaction
    Pedagogy
    How does the textbook suggest we help students learn the notion of one-to-one correspondence?
  • 9. singaporemathinaction
    Pedagogy
    Why is the unifix cubes considered a good set of materials to embody the key concept of cardinal numbers?
  • 10. singaporemathinaction
    Example 2
    Primary Mathematics (Standards Edition) Textbook 1B
  • 11. singaporemathinaction
    Think!
    What does the textbook suggest teachers do to teach place values? What is the first task? What is the next task?
  • 12. singaporemathinaction
    Think!
    Do you recognize Bruner’s theory of representations on this textbook page?
  • 13. singaporemathinaction
    Think!
    Why the five representations of the same mathematical idea of 34?
  • 14. singaporemathinaction
    ZoltanDiene’s Theory of Variability
    • Perceptual Variability
    • 15. Mathematical Variability
  • singaporemathinaction
    Study one unit from a textbook. What are the key content students need to learn? What are the pedagogies available to help them learn? Do you see Bruner and Dienes in the textbook? What else do you notice?
    Workshop
    Please prepare a poster to summarize your group’s discussion. Display the poster before lunch. Indicate the names of the group members.

    Richard Skemp’s Theory of Understanding
  • Coupled with Session 1, the textbook study aims to help us do unit and lesson planning as well as to deepen and extend our understanding of learning theories associated with effective mathematics learning. One task you should now do is the next time you are planning a lesson, put these into practice. What is the main content to be learnt? What materials embody the concept? What tasks are to be included? How to assess for learning? How to differentiate for different learners?
