These principles are illustrated through the discussion of one type of experience: that of sorting multiple representations. I refer to learning experiences rather than tasks, because tasks are only one component of the design. Close attention is also paid to the role of the teacher in creating an appropriate climate for learning to take place. After a brief excursion into my own theoretical framework, I describe the educational objectives behind my design and provide a detailed explanation of it in one topic, that of algebraic notation.

High School Math Teacher Profile - Dave Sladskey On Dave Sladkey's first day of teaching high school math, his school recommended him two things – don't smile, and don't let the kids out of their seats.

How Japanese Kids Learn To Multiply – Amazing, No Need to Learn Japanese Thank you to everyone who has shared this post! Before we discuss this great method of multiplying numbers, if you are after a great power point slide show to use in the classroom to improve times tables and multiplication skills then you will find this useful. If you enjoyed using the resource above then make sure to check out the games and tricks available to help develop, practice and learn times tables skills. I came across this method though a Japanese friend and it shows how Japanese pupils learn to multiply in maths lessons at a young age. The great thing is that you do not need to learn Japanese to master this method, all you need to do is to be able to draw and count lines and dots.
