When a student is involved in active experiences, they feel competent & confident when dealing with real life problems. Putting knowledge to practical uses presents an ideal avenue for the application of mathematical skills. Math Ed Labs provide an opportunity to experience Mathematics learning through the hands-on mode because we believe that the purpose for learning is evident with a coherent, integrated curriculum, which frees students enough to reason about complex problems, analyze multiple solutions, and communicate ideas and results.
Manipulatives not only allow students to construct their own cognitive models for abstract mathematical ideas and processes, but also engage students and increase their interest in Mathematics.
The seemingly simple question of solving math has plagued countless generations of parents and children who have gone through our education system. What makes it worse is if a child has no interest in the subject. To encourage a child to learn math, we must help him or her to develop interest.
The education system needs to move away from the conventional pedagogy of teaching Mathematics especially at school level and to include methods of facilitating learning
In the present state of schooling, we are not nurturing a learner into a thinker but a product of rote learning. As an organisation we aspire to develop a culture in the schools that focuses on imparting quality education to students, which, in the first place, is always the priority of the teachers and the schools as well.
