patricia kissinger Posted over 4 years ago What do you think about the teaching of maths at different levels of education? How do you think it could be improved not to be so feared? As a Mathematics teacher I think the best thing we can do as teachers is to share our enthusiasm for Math. Our own enjoyment will spread to the students. I also believe in keeping the explanations simple throughout grade school and high school. Just teach what they need to help them taste success and build confidence. As their mental capacity for logic and numbers improves with age, they will be ready for the higher level Math courses taught in college. I also think it's imperative that the kids NOT use calculators throughout grade school. They need to memorize the multiplication tables right at the beginning.
