What is Mathematics?
Mathematics involves the study of topics such as number and operations, algebra, geometry, measurement, data analysis and probability, problem solving, reasoning, and more. A fundamental aspect of daily life, mathematics has been in use for thousands of years for such varied activities as calculating the latitude and longitude, developing an understanding of the orbits of the planets, determining the trajectory of rockets returning to Earth, building roads, and assisting chefs to add the correct proportions of ingredients to their recipes.
It has been usual for many years to engage younger students with mathematics lessons that focus on time, calendars, and money—three areas in which many people use math on a daily basis. Counting, adding, and subtracting are three of the most common mathematics skills, but it is becoming more typical to engage students with all aspects of mathematics throughout their schooling. This includes topics that have been reserved for older students in the past, such as data analysis, probability, reasoning, and structuring proofs. Since mathematics topics underpin learning in other subject areas, developing students’ engagement with mathematics and ensuring their learning is solid contributes to their education and lives far beyond the math classroom.
For the student who has the passion, dedication, and natural ability that lead to further study in mathematics, the opportunities are endless. There are many jobs and avenues that can be pursued with mathematics skills and qualifications, especially with a college degree or graduate study. This is because learning mathematics teaches students many different skills, such as logical thinking, problem-solving, communication, analysis, data handling, and decision-making. Some of the jobs that require mathematic competence include: engineering, animation, design, teaching, science, research, investing, analysis, cartography, architecture, and many more.
Unfortunately, there are students who find mathematics either hard or boring. This is usually due to a lack of understanding and relatability to everyday life, rather than the content of the mathematic topics themselves. Students who come to understand how the mathematics they're learning in the classroom can be applied to everyday life will be able to not only better understand complex topics, but also find mathematics lessons more interesting and enjoyable. This will in turn, lead to greater engagement in lessons, more motivation for independent learning and subsequently, better mathematics fluency and understanding.
Using a wide variety of educational games and apps helps in encouraging your students to have fun with mathematics while working together, all while still learning key mathematics skills and gaining new knowledge. These games could include traditional board games, puzzles, hands-on activities, or something more high-tech, such as interactive quizzes. Whichever form of educational entertainment you choose, your students will appreciate a break from typical calculations whenever they share informative learning time with apps and games.
Mathematics posters can provide benefits across age and ability groups through their use of straightforward language and concise explanations that will help students to grasp key mathematics topics without feeling overwhelmed with unnecessary jargon. Many of the posters use color not just for design, but in meaningful ways to group and highlight key concepts, thereby supporting the concepts being taught and contributing to understanding. The careful design of poster elements contributes to students being able to understand the basics of mathematical concepts, building their confidence along with their foundational skills. Posters can be used to assist students in coming to understand key pieces of mathematical understanding, such as the times tables, formulas for area and volume, ratio and proportion, and graphing on the coordinate plane. But they can also serve as an easy reference so that students who may not remember all those details can easily employ the correct formula or algorithm when the focus is not on having memorized the details but employing them in problem solving contexts. Displaying key content in poster form will also help students to focus on the most important things that they'll need to remember for tests and exams.
