Study finds cash and coins help engage primary maths students  8 views

"Primary school students are more likely to understand and engage with maths if classes use real money and reallife projects, according to a Western Sydney University pilot study.
The findings come as Australian students lag behind other countries in maths, with Year 4 students dropping from 18th to 28th out of 49 countries in year 4 maths in the latest Trends in International Mathematics and Science study."

How I Rewired My Brain to Become Fluent in Math  Issue 17: Big Bangs  Nautilus  2 views

By championing the importance of understanding, teachers can inadvertently set their students up for failure as those students blunder in illusions of competence. As one (failing) engineering student recently told me: “I just don’t see how I could have done so poorly. I understood it when you taught it in class.” My student may have thought he’d understood it at the time, and perhaps he did, but he’d never practiced using the concept to truly internalize it. He had not developed any kind of procedural fluency or ability to apply what he thought he understood.

Time after time, professors in mathematics and the sciences have told me that building wellingrained chunks of expertise through practice and repetition was absolutely vital to their success. Understanding doesn’t build fluency; instead, fluency builds understanding. In fact, I believe that true understanding of a complex subject comes only from fluency.

I'm using this video demonstrating how to solve a multiplication problem using partial products as a model for when I create my own. I think having a video like this available on my blog for parents or students when they get stuck on homework, or don't understand why we use this method would be very helpful.
