5 Ways To Share Math With Kids: Dan Finkel
Published by:
In the TED Talk "5 Ways To Share Math With Kids," Dan Finkel, a mathematician and educator, shares his insights on how to make math engaging and enjoyable for children. He outlines five key strategies: Start With a Question: Instead of presenting math as a set of rules to follow, begin with a compelling question that sparks curiosity and invites exploration. Encourage Play: Treat math like a playground, where children can experiment, make mistakes, and discover new ideas in a fun, pressure-free environment. Use Visuals: Visual representations can make abstract concepts more concrete and accessible, helping kids to understand and retain mathematical ideas better. Embrace Mistakes: Normalise making mistakes as a crucial part of the learning process, emphasising that errors are opportunities for learning and growth. Be a Guide, Not an Answer Key: Encourage children to find their own solutions and strategies, guiding them with questions and hints rather than providing direct answers. Finkel emphasises that these approaches can help foster a love for math and develop critical thinking skills in children. https://youtu.be/ytVneQUA5-c?si=A4ks_5ITfpltwWCB
