23 Sep 2013 - It takes to build a good foundation

This was the first class, topic on 'Creating a Mathematical Climate in the Classroom'. I was introduced to four math story problems and it seemed tough when I tried to do these sums. I feel that if I do not have a good foundation of mathematics, it is tough to make connections to the sums I am doing. I truly agree with what Professor Yeap mentioned that if you do not managed to do the sums using the right idea or method, you will continue to do the wrong way even after umpteen tries or practises.
