In these six lesson I have gain so much knowledge of teaching the children. I too have learned the common mistakes made by most teachers. Dr. Yeap, you have covered a lot of materials and included many worked examples.I have learned that Math is about problem solving. I also learned that the teacher is crucial to a student's success. The teacher must know several ways to explain certain concepts. In school I never had a teacher that I could understand their teaching method. There are several things I never thought about which I learned in your class.
Thank you for the wonderful 6 days.
