Reflection _ 5 apr 2013

As teachers,  we are continually reflecting on our learning and teaching by assimilating and accomodating new information ourselves. We retrieve the existing information stored in the filing cabinet of our mind,make the decision of putting away incorrect perceptions taught to us when we were students, after getting clarity in understanding in the principals and ideas behind formulas and seeing things in a bigger perspective.

I am beginning to see maths as observing patterns, generalising these patterns into mathematical expressions to cause a deeper thinking through the initial stage of visualization.

I appreciate the use of geoboards and dots in helping us to make sense of abstract concepts through the exploration of  shapes and their properties.
