ENRICHING DAY FOUR! ( 4 April 2013)

Can you solve 1/2 divided by 3/8? Well, I was not able to as my school days division have been forgotton. After Dr Yeap’s demonstration, I realised that it was easy and I did it!

He covered topics like area, multiplication and division. He highlighted that when teaching multiplication we have to use the CPA approach and also conduct enrichment to extend their learning under the same concept.

 The problem’s we solve today were funon tangrams. We had to visualise how to make a bigger shape using the smaller ones. Although I was confused at first, I did it at last!
Dr Yeap also explained on Assimilation and Accomodation which were Jean Piaget’s theory. He also explained on schema where children are allowed to do problem solving.
It is the 4th day of lesson and it very enriching.
