I felt intrigued with today’s mathematical learning. The materials used highlighted the elements of fun learning with a component of creativity or innovation. Challenging students to think and try of ways to manipulate the materials. The CPA approach – concrete, pictorial and abstarct, is further elaborated and enhanced. I realized that it applies to our daily encounters of trying to figure out solutions.
However, a problem story as the final activity of the day was mentally stimulating which required a lot of thinking skills on my part. It was not easy for me to conclude the answer but there is a need to dig deep into our mental/intellectual capacity to understand what is required to solve such problems.
