__Day 6- Last Day of Class!__Here's a review of what the 20 + problems that we did over the last few days taught us to do...

**1. Promote Visualisation**

**2. Spot patterns**

**3. Gain number sense**

**4. Think about communication**

**( explaining the reasons behind the methods used, how teachers choose appropriate words and terms to use when teaching math)**

**5. Promote metacognition ( higher order thinking)**

**We discussed about how important it is for teachers to choose appropriate words and terms when teaching math!**

**This example of division is too confusing, having too many symbols present!**

**This is how it should be done!**

We also talked about graphs and how we can extend learning from a simple graph.

__A possible progression__
1. Simple bar graph in proper arrangement ( as shown)

2. Have specific counters to represent a certain number in the bar graph

(eg. Yellow= 10 people)

3. Plot them in a pie chart format or a line graph format

Using poker cards and our foreheads, we played a game of multiplication and division with our friends!

The SALUTE! game is to have us take a card each, place it on our foreheads and have us guess the number on our card, using our friends' cards as clues.

The more number of players, the more times u need to multiply and the bigger the number is for you to divide!

**I truly learnt new methods of teaching and thinking over the span of these few days.**

**It was mind-boggling at times, forcing my brain to think of various ways to deal with a single problem and thinking deeper into a problem and how to explain it succintly.**

**Nevertheless, it was a fruitful journey for me!**

**Thank you Dr Yeap for your time and effort!**

**Till next time!**
