Building Students' Confidence in Learning Mathematics - Using Algediscs to Learn Algebra
13 Mar 2013
At Bedok View Secondary School, efforts are being made to level up the numeracy skills of low-progress students. Teachers focus on addressing learning gaps and motivate these students by a variety of intervention strategies. One of these strategies is to use concrete manipulatives, such as Algediscs, to relate to abstract operations in Algebra. This method makes learning a more hands-on experience, and helps to build confidence and interest in Mathematics.
This levelling up effort is being piloted in 14 primary schools and 15 secondary schools so as to extend support and help students achieve a higher level of competency in numeracy.
