Innovative Ways of Teaching Math to Children


Innovative Ways of Teaching

Classrooms should be a place where ideas sparkle and where creative activities are nurtured – where students can ask critical questions such as “Do you think you could have done that?” ”Have you ever tried this?” or and so on.  Questions like these will enhance children’s understanding of mathematical concepts and applications, which will help him or her to get good scores in competitive tests like SATs. Top colleges and universities demand applicants’ high SAT scores when it comes to admissions and awarding scholarships.

The following has some creative approaches to teaching math to children. Let’s get to it:

  1. Focus on Dramatizations

Ask children to pretend to be in a ball (sphere) or box (rectangle) and make them feel the edges, sides, and corners. You can use drama to explain simple arithmetic problems, say, there are three balls in the box, and little Sam added one more. Now, how many balls are there in the box?

  • Use Children’s Bodies

Teachers can ask the kids how many legs, feet, mouths, hands, and so on they have. Tell them to show their three legs, you’ll find them shouting in protest.  Now ask them how many hands a grown-up person has and show them to prove it. Ask the kids how old are they and tell them to show numbers with their fingers. You can also ask them to show numbers in different ways, for instance, you can tell them to show five by as three on one hand and two on the other.

  • Use Kid’s Play

Using kid’s playing blocks is a great way to make them learn mathematics. Block play allows children to do math in numerous ways, including seriating, sorting, creating symmetric designs, building block buildings, making patterns, and many more.  Teachers can also suggest kids play with toy dinosaurs or other small objects and pretend them to buy and sell them with other kids. This type of play will help them learn the basics concepts of counting, arithmetic, and money.

  • Use Children’s Stories

Encourage kids to read books that not only good stories but also talks about mathematics in a fun way. Later, tell the children if they any about mathematics in other books.  To give you an example, there is a book called, In Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey where this is explained.

  • Use Children’s Natural Creativity

Children have their own ideas about mathematics and it should be discussed with all children. Here’s a “mathematical conversation”, an example to imitate.  You can initiate a conversation between two boys, both 6 years of age and tell them to think of the biggest number they each can. Now add ten. Then, tell them to imagine if they had that many cupcakes!

  • Use The Kid’s Problem-Solving Abilities

Ask children to discuss how they would solve a problem like how many cups of tea or cakes would they need if a group of people will be joining the group. You can encourage them to use their own fingers or whatever else they may find the solution to the problem.

  • Use A Variety Of Strategies

Talk about mathematics everywhere you go in the classroom. Start by counting the children at the morning meeting or ask the kids to clean or rearrange a given number or shape of things. In addition, you can use a research-based curriculum to include a sequenced series of learning activities into the program. For instance, some tuition centers recommend using word problems to teach algebra.

  • Take Advantage Of Technology

When it comes to teaching, technology is being used everywhere from kid’s classrooms to specialized training centers. Use digital cameras to record the kid’s mathematical work during classroom work and while playing. Use the photographs to discuss and reflect your opinions with the children, designing the curriculum and communicating with parents.  Use computers to mathematize situations and to offer customized instructions.

  • Use Assessments Tools To Gauge The Children’s Mathematics Learning

It is important to access the progress of the children’s mathematics learning and thinking through observations, group discussions with children, and small-group activities. This will help teachers to make informed decisions about what each kid may learn from future experiences. We suggest using various computer-based assessment tools and programs to assess children automatically.
