Today's lesson taught me that,
when you have been taught certain for so long you find it so hard to look at it
at another way! I felt confused with the methods taught in class as I have
always done sums using the common "formulas". I thought multiplication
is just remembering the “times table” and you're good to go! But there are so
many other ways to find out the answer to a multiplication sum.

I found what Dr Yeap said about
teacher's teaching in an ethical method very interesting. Some methods that can benefit the children in
better understanding maths concepts are not taught because certain teachers are
stuck with their knowledge of previous learning and
are comfortable with that way of teaching. They tend to overlook the
ethical part of educating and teaching. But it is good to know that professional
development and regular quality checks are taking place in schools to ensure
that children are taught the curriculum that is designed for them to reach
their full potential.

Problem 12
taught me that:

It is wrong to say 1/4 as: 1 upon 4/1 over 4 or I out of 4
(unless ratios or probability)

The
correct pronunciation would be

__1 fourth__
For
example, you mention: 3 fourths shared among 3 people

I personally like the
