Accuracy: precise solution, which will motivate to make a right decision.Save time: Everything has to deal with time. He will be a lot benefit if he can save as much as he could.Speed and calculation would just be the same. He will have to calculate how much work he needs to be done in a certain duration.Computer graphics are so precise that it needs a precise measurement.
They are able to solve + or - problems involving large numbers even before they have been taught arithmetic.Children response the questions with their number sense when they are presented in symbolic arithmetic even they are not taught place value or exact addition facts.Even though children are not taught symbolic addition and subtraction, they still perform well on the tests without guessing.New findings suggest us that symbolic arithmetic will be difficult for children and it will take years to learn.Teachers are concerned that children would be frustrated but amazed at children’s success and engagement.
In general, math is not logical. There is always at least a solution for problemsIt would need several practices. However, certain people such as Einstein, is a math genius.
Children are in favor of Shortcut without realizing and start ignore the numbers.According to my experience, one should not just depend on its intelligent. Sometimes, he should go through consciousness.A tougher math challenge means taking higher level math courses.
Understanding social world means that a person can see the world differently. Therefore, he will have different solutions and thinking.As age becomes older, a person earns more experience. He thinks widely and openly and solve the problems masterly. However, he will also learn in details.Response differently in certain conditions motivates a person to see things widely. In addition, it is outstanding to response many ways in everyday life not just one similar answers to every questions.
It is important to know how to teach children when the children are still young because their life just begin and they need to be in the right route.However, a lot of people cannot really follow a drastic change. However, I believe everyone is used to technology now. It would not be problem anymore.
Teachers face a dramatic challenge when teaching technique changes. For example, a country will face a great confusion when the policy changes. A family meets difficulties when they move to a new home.Unlike our time before 21st century, the technology is not much developed as today. Students do not have such internet and laptop to do research. What they have is the precious lectures around them. In deed, technological teaching helps a lot in the study.In some rural areas, the government cannot support teaching programs due to difficult transportation and cost.
Of course, Math is important to children.Budgeting money won’t be necessary for children. However, it will be important in future.Memorizing phone number is important to children. Emergency can be happened anytime.Estimating distances as well as estimating time need to be understood because it is asked everyday.Learning is most effected in younger age.Math numbers are even related to art (musical instrument notes)
The cause will not only lead them to dislike Arithmetic, but also later will dislike to everything else that relates to technology.Nowadays, math is mainly composed of Arithmetic, Geometry, Algebra, and Calculus.The field of Logic and Topology started to grow rapidly. Therefore, we need to find ways to introduce these ideas into our children’s earlier years
Math homework had been my most annoying one and my favorite one. It is annoying because the problems are not all the same. Unlike history, a student cannot memorize everything to answer. In math, they need to think in order to answer.Moreover, math always requires a precise answer.
Younger children need parents’ attention. Parents are also important in children’s homework. They can also help their kids and give them confidence.For example, parents can help setting a time for children or schedule. I understand that kids like to play and don’t want to do homework. Study environment is also important. If the study environment is near noisy places, it will effect the children greatly. Therefore, parents can find somewhere silence or quiet place.Nobody can be doing well without guidance. Parents who have a lot of experience can lead the kids in better ways by guiding correctly.
Teacher interaction1. Able to stay with one small group2.Able to offer immediate feedback3. Less students in class, more teacher attention4. Less students, less noise.5. Quiet and more concentration
It is important for younger children to understand that the world is different based on that animals come in different colors and shapes.It even allows them to think creatively.
The children will deal with time and money lately. It is also the basis of life.Working with a partner can be described as team work. Team work is important and the children need to know how to work with their partner and how to get along with them.
Math is pretty much based on the stuff we do in everyday life. Measuring weight, height and temperature are necessary to know.Of course, counting money is money. However, I believe no children will miss that.
8 total intelligencesVerbal-linguistic (easily produces language)Math-logic (shown above)Spatial (ability to create visual representations)Musical (sensitive)Bodily-kinesthetic (uses body to make things, solve problems, convey ideas)Intrapersonal (understand its own emotions and goals)Interpersonal (child works effectively with others, understands others’ goals and motivations)Naturalist (able to recognize plants/animals, in touch with the natural world)
In career, it does not always happen as the way we expected. For example, speaking of engineering, it sounds easy but it requires a lot of creation, intelligence and brain storming.Formulating problem does not only exist in engineering field but it is also required in financial/economic field such as Gaussian copula function.Advanced concepts are necessary while building big blocks such as airports, football stadium, bridge, air crafts, cars,…etc.Nowadays, technology is much more advanced. Everything is related to math and math is used in every seconds.
Above popular careers are all based on math, meanwhile, they also require brain storming.Mostly, children who dislike math will think that why they have to do with math in real life. By providing interested careers would affect them in liking of math. Therefore, it is good for their future.Those are all popular careers with high salaries. Nonetheless, designers need to scale and graph for their products.However, many math related careers usually have high salaries. In the mean time, people in those fields are stressful but their working environment is much better than any others.
Google office is the greatest office I have ever seen. They gives the employers everything they needed.Accordingly, math can bring anyone to this kind of job.
In order to make sense, always need to have a strong explanation. For example, always need to have a perfect answer for “why”.Always testing the kids (at least the kids can do simplify and multiply fractions)Strategies such as measuring gamesAs an instructor, need to love the work what one is doing
Parents are the one who can influence and encourage kids the most.A positive attitude is required no matter where.Hard work and effort are important to the kid’s success than ability.Young children have an intuitive sensitivity to small numbers.
In everyday life, though children will not like math but they still understand doing the facts listed above.Younger children can understand why it's important to know how to measure how tall something is or how heavy it is, and they can usually understand how to do things like wallpapering or hanging window shades call for knowing how to measure.
Problems solving is the key in being able to do all other aspects of mathematics. Through problem solving, children learn that there are many different ways to solve a problem and that more than one answer is possible. It involves the ability to explore, think through an issue, and reason logically to solve routine as well as non-routine problems. In addition to helping with mathematical thinking, this activity builds language and social skills such as working together.Children are naturally curious about everyday problems. Invite your children to figure out solutions to everyday situations. We can do this by talking about the problem, ask children for ways to solve it, and then ask how they came up with those solutions.Encourage children to suggest problems and ask questions, too. Children will learn how to figure things out and will learn that many problems can be solved several different ways.
Communicationmeans speaking with children and listening to them. It means finding ways to express ideas with words, diagrams, pictures, and symbols. When children talk, either with you or with their friends, it helps them think about what they are doing and makes their own thoughts clearer. As a bonus, talking with children improves their vocabulary and helps develop literacy and early reading skills as well. Reading children's books that rhyme, repeat, or have numbers in them (available at your local library) is a great way to communicate using mathematics.All communication does not have to be in words. We can represent math in ways other than talking. Children can make diagrams or draw pictures to solve problems or represent numbers. They can use concrete objects like pieces of paper or even fingers to represent numbers.
Reasoning is used to think through a question and come up with a useful answer. It is a major part of problem solving. To promote reasoning, askchildren questions and give them time to think about the answer. By simply asking questions and listening to answers, it helps children learn to reason.Ask children to figure out why something is the way it is and then check out their ideas. Let them think for themselves, rather than try to figure out what answer you want to hear.
Mathematics is not isolated skills and procedures. Mathematics is everywhere and most of what we see is a combination of different concepts. A lot of mathematics relates to other subjects like science, art, and music. Most importantly, math relates to things we do in the real world every day. Connections make mathematics easier for children to understand because they allow children to apply common rules to many different things.Ask children to think about and solve problems that arise in your everyday activities. For example, ask children to help you put the groceries away. They will practice sorting—the cereal boxes and the soup cans—and experiment with relative size and shape and how the big boxes take up more room than the smaller ones.Look for mathematics in your everyday life and don't worry about what the particular aspect of mathematics might be. Something as simple as pouring water into different sized cups and thinking about which cup will hold more is a low-key activity that actually involves estimation, measurement, and spatial sense.
Mainly caused by George Soros (a speculator), for his debacle in country’s currency and stock market.However, Speculation is irrelevant to the project but it is still relevant to Math. Math played a part in financial crisis.All the currency exchange rates had to do with math. Exchange rates change every second and most of the international business are inseparable with U.S currency. However, the currency is also changing every seconds as well as stock market1. Malaysia: the currency moved in a 10% range of 2.7 to 2.5 ringgits to the dollar.2. Thailand: eﬀectively ﬁxed in a narrow 25.2 to 25.6 to the dollar.3. The Philippines ﬁxed at 26.2 rate to the dollar4. Korea traded in a very narrow range of 800 to 770 won to the dollar.5. Indonesia allowed the nominal exchange rate to move to keep the real exchange rateﬁxed.
The Gaussian copula function has made surplus amount of money for investors and it also caused the market breakdown Reason why it killed wall street was bond market, which allowed trillions of dollars in profits from David Li’s copula function.Math has certainty. Investors like risk as long as they can price it. What they hate is uncertainty (not knowing how big risk is).The reason why I want to tell about this is that math can either help or ruin.
Some students go to college and some do not but math course is required no matter what.College is the place where it trains people to have experiences and prepare for careerEven though a person who majors in History, Music and Language, he is still required to take math class.
I remembered that I experienced this anxiety in seventh grade. The reason was that I do not understand and helpless. Therefore, I give up and did not even want to go to math class.However, the turning point was in eighth grade when I started to do a lot of practices.It always causes the children to fear math. If they fear math in such young ages, it will be hard to develop their skills in future.Teaching methods often cause the children math anxiety. For instance, some instructors don’t allow students to solve the problems in different ways and the problems have to be solved by the way they teach.Some students are just lazy to memorize formulas, which makes them failing in the exam.
In order to be understood, teaching techniques must be changed.Math classroom should have a positive atmosphere Many students are willing to participate in classroom activities such as cards, dominoes, and yahtzee. Also in household activities such as sewing, cooking, and home repairs. They all use measurements and problem solving skills.Practice always get betterGroup work can have different solutions and different ideas. It will allow to solve the problems effectively.
