Talking Maths and Thinking Skills


  TTLCIC - Talking Maths and Thinking Skills

Did you know that talking about maths problems is beneficial for students learning maths? The process improves reasoning skills and helps them understand why a solution works, rather than memorising and rote learning. When children enjoy writing or doing maths, they actually grow in confidence and enjoy learning more. They feel comfortable thinking and talking about maths.

Talking about mathematics improves reasoning skills and helps children understand why a solution works, rather than just memorising and rote learning. Structured group work develops individuals' competence in solving problems.

In formal teaching environments for many learners mathematics is a topic that teachers control. Encouraging learners to come up with their own examples enables them to experience being mathematicians.
