Mathematics can be meaningful, easy and fun

  • Maarit Rossi Paths to Math


The negative attitudes are easily growing among children when mothers are telling to their daughters they were not good at mathematics or when newspapers’ cartoonist is drawing jokes about bad mathematics memories at school. It seems that the structure of mathematics lessons have not changed during the last decades. Schools seem to put too much attention to mechanical practice and mathematics teaching is too far from student interest and life. By diversifying teaching methods and using technology like adults are using it in everyday life, we can get students engaged to mathematics and change their attitudes positive towards mathematics.
