Teachers who are teaching Mathematics
Mathematics can be a difficult subject for elementary schoolchildren to grasp. The abstract
nature of the concept often makes it challenging to explain to young learners. Teaching elementary
math is much easier with the help of a variety of teaching tools that help make mathematical concepts
more concrete and demonstrate to students how they will use math in their everyday lives
A number line is a simple, affordable and incredibly valuable mathematical teaching tool.
When students begin to learn math, they develop number sense. Number sense is the understanding of
what numbers are and how they relate to each other. A student who knows that six is a larger number
than four has a basic concept of number sense. Number lines provide students with a concrete
representation of the number system. When students first begin counting or start to learn the basic
operations of addition and subtraction, number lines can help them compare the values of numbers as
well as remember the order of the digits.
When developing early math skills, students must learn basic multiplication facts by heart.
Times tables have been a fall-back tool for years, but they remain valuable. By practicing times tables
with students, teachers can ensure that their students can quickly recall the basic multiplication facts
needed when they move on to more advanced mathematical concepts in higher grades.
Manipulatives are hands-on tools that help students figure out simple or complex math
problems. Teachers commonly use brightly colored plastic or wooden blocks as manipulatives, but
you can use any concrete object, including small plastic fruits, little pieces of candy or toothpicks.
When students first see an addition problem, the concept is foreign to them. It can be difficult for them
to visualize a situation in which a quantity is added to another quantity. Through the aid of
manipulatives, teachers can demonstrate how the concept works. If a student is trying to determine
what two plus two is, he can easily solve the problem by taking two manipulatives then taking two
more. Then all he has to do is count to determine the sum of the numbers.
Story problems allow students to see how they will use mathematical concepts in class in real
life. Learning how to add, subtract, multiply and divide is only half the battle. The skills are nearly
useless if students cannot apply them to real-life situations. By integrating story problems into daily
lessons, teachers can effectively ensure that their students understand how to use math in everyday
life. Also, story problems help students understand the relevance of math. Through story problems,
students can begin to see that the concepts they are learning are not only useful in school, but that they
have inherent value due to real-world applications.

How can I provide enrichment within the classroom to students who are ready to think more deeply about
How can I provide Slow Learners the Appropriate Remedial Activity without compromising the quality
time of instruction for other learners?
Hoi can issues regarding lack of references be addressed.
Focus on presenting lessons through significant types of problem solving
Have students record their ideas, strategies, and questions. These could be a spiral notebook that the students
keep or a binder. Students could also write their responses to Writing/ Reasoning prompts.
Differentiation can happen during the main discussion by talking about the concepts at various levels and
modeling strategies for kids. Other ideas include: modifying Math Boxes, supplying games that hit more
difficult skills, and doing the Enrichment activities for each lesson."
Employ Role playing, Simulation, Pear Tutoring and Learning Barkada during activities.
Provide ample visual and teaching devices and various problem- solving that will enable to develop critical
Thinking and logical Reasoning.

Teaching Mathematics is an important vehicle for educating students for life by promoting interest,
developing common sense and the power to discriminate. In particular, it is an approach which
encourages flexibility, the ability to respond to unexpected situations or situations that do not have an
immediate solution, and helps to develop perseverance in the face of failure. A problem-solving approach
can provide a vehicle for students to construct their own ideas about mathematics and to take responsibility
for their own learning. While these are all important mathematics skills, they are also important life skills
and help to expose pupils to a values education that is essential to their holistic development.
