  34. 34. One of your classmates noticed that there is a relationship between thedifference of numbers in the first (orlast) column and the multiples of the numbers which stays in one column. Example in the case of JANE or JOHN, the difference between numbers in the column J is 8 and multiples of 8 is always under the same letter.The ability to look for patterns andto generalize is an important ability to have and children should have ample opportunity to acquire it in early mathematics.

  36. 36. We discussed at length the choice ofmaterials. In the case of shapes,misconceptions arise when we givechildren three-dimensional objectswhen they are learning about basicshapes such as squares, triangles,rectangles, which are all plane or twodimensional.
