When did maths become fun?

I came across this today and wanted to share with you what I feel to be one of the best things about being a teacher. Giving students the chance to create their own understanding. I wish my maths teacher had taught like this. This video is a testament to the saying “seeing is believing”.

This program is available as an iPad app and I have it downloaded ready to explore. It could be a great addition to my prac lessons.

  1. Totally agree with your comments there. I left school twenty years ago and it would have been great to learn Maths like this also. Thanks for sharing video.

  2. What a great resource for students, it makes learning look like fun, and that’s how we need to teach. The constructivist approach worked for this little boy. It just goes to show how concrete materials work for the students understanding.
