Mathematics is the
study of the measurement, properties, and relationships of quantities and sets,
using numbers and symbols.

*“Mathematics is an excellent vehicle for the development and improvement of a person’s intellectual ability in logical reasoning, spatial visualisation, analysis and abstract thought*” CPDD MOE

Ms Peggy Foo taught
on lesson study, enrichment lessons and about differentiated instruction. The
activities are engaging, challenging and fun.

__Activity: Card Trick__
Arranging the cards in a row and moving cards which have been removed by
moving them upwards and another method is to draw our thoughts on solving the ‘trick”

*Implications for Instruction:*

- Working with teachers
- Manipulation of poker cards
- Spelling the numbers,
- Challenging and interesting.
- Prior knowledge
- Patterning & generalization

__Activity: Paper Art (cut out figures from paper__

- Anticipate a pattern
- Relate similarities
- Simple to complex

*What do you see?*- Describe
- Observe
- Visual

*What do you think?*- Inferring from patterns
- Relationship, able to connect

*How do you wonder?*- Reason
- Infer/generalization

__Activity: Story- telling:__- Before reading- story express
- Predict the story based on given words
- After reading - retell story through pictures or text

**What have I learnt for this final session?**

The
following activities that reinforce what we as teachers and children need to
develop for learning Mathematics:

- Card trick: Patterning and generalization
- Paper art: Visualization and patterning
- Story telling: Pattering and differentiation – content, process, product
