Practical Ways to Develop Students’ Mathematicical Reasoning and Academic Performance
NEW YORK, Jan. 15, 2016 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — This Teacher’s Blog series provides practical and informative advice on how mathematics teachers can improve their students’ mathematical reasoning abilities and ability to problem solve. It also can help improve students’ productivity and overall academic performance.
This first in a series is written by MIT math professor, Eric Mack, Ph.D., professor of mathematics at Northeastern University and former creator of the Cambridge Mathematics Project. Dr. Mack’s book, “The Recipe: How New Math Makes Old Problems Flourish,” (ISBN: 978-1737081158) suggests how educators can improve their students’ mathematical reasoning capabilities. In this first in a series of articles, Dr. Mack discusses his suggestions and how they can affect the success of students’ mathematical reasoning abilities.
According to Dr. Mack, “Mathematics and science can be too rare and mathematical reasoning – which is more like thought – is too commonplace. The key to change is to provide more scientifically and historically grounded explanations as well as more analytical strategies to help students sort through the intricate data available from these areas. The more mathematics and science is introduced, the more mathematically robust students can become.”
Part I – 1
Note: This article provides a detailed explanation of how students can learn to problem solve as well as their academic performance improvement.
Part II – 2
Note: This article provides more examples, including how this approach might improve students’ mathematical reasoning abilities.
Part III – 4
Note: This article provides more practical solutions to specific mathematical problems for different grade levels, including those that require more study.
“The Recipe: How New Math Makes Old Problems Flourish” provides practical ways that math teachers can improve their students’ mathematical reasoning skills.
Dr. Mack’s book, “The Recipe: How New Math Makes Old Problems Flourish,” (ISBN: 978-1737081158) is available on Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com and Goodreads.com.
