abacus math for kindergarten has been around for centuries yet only in the last few decades have different techniques and approaches been invented to teach students to work to the best of their capabilities.
RSVP now to see the following approaches being observed and used by students to help them learn and educate themselves in the field of maths.
1) Co-operative learning approach – the teacher conducts activities which the students must perform in groups. The teacher guides and supervises the students as they carry out this activity.
Any queries, doubts or errors are solved by the students with the assistance of the teacher. The teacher monitors the student’s behavior and evaluates the learning outcome.
The teacher also helps formulate the conclusion or solution.
2) Context learning approach – based on the students memory of past concepts and everyday situations, new information or knowledge is provided to them to process and logically reason out the information.
The student can easily imagine the situation and draw solutions to given problems when the student experiences these things on a daily basis.
Each student actively participates. In case the child draws a wrong solution, the teacher gives other life experiences to explain and help the student derive the correct solution.
3) Mastery learning approach – the curriculum is broken down into small portions and the students are to achieve mastery over each portion before moving forward to the next portion.
The teacher must have mastery over every portion himself in order to help his students. Every student must have mastered the expected learning outcome which can be done by assessment at the end of that portion.
In case the desired outcome is not achieved, remedial or enrichment activities must be carried out.
4) Constructivism approach – the student constructs knowledge by testing concepts and ideas based on previous knowledge and experience.
Because it is easy to construct based on known facts, new concepts can be made interesting and the teacher can build curiosity in the student’s mind.
As the new concept is being taught, references to the old concept help make the abstract idea a concrete one.
The connection between the old facts and the new concept helps in co relating formulas and rules which helps in a continuity in the thought process of a student.
RSVP now and find your child being nurtured with such interesting and fun filled approaches to education. Learning does not seem like learning when such approaches are put to the test.
