Sharpen your imagination

« Go back

Using real-life examples in your maths sessions will sharpen your students’ imaginations. Just like in this beautiful poster from Tang Yau Hoong. Encourage them to see maths in everything. A good start is to provide daily mental warm-ups using our maths photographs and maths graphics for mathematical brainstorms. Try not to rely on commercial textbooks and worksheets – these can stifle your students’ imaginations. Can they work with a partner to explain what they think and why? Maths language needs to pour out of them as they argue, explain, describe, compare and extend their thinking.
