As a primary school teacher, I understand that a basic foundation of number and number skills is paramount. Students who don't have a firm grounding in base ten would benefit greatly from my visually oriented and hands-on lessons. I also involve real-life problem-solving investigations so that students understand the how, what and why of which basic number operations to use. Looking at the properties of numbers such as primes and composites is also a major influence in my teaching. When students understand the functionality of numbers in a deep and meaningful way they will greatly enhance their skills in being able to use numbers to solve algorithms, real-life problems and form conjectures fom investigations that bring a deeper grasp of various concepts in mathematics.
I have had 17 years of experience working as a primary school teacher. In that time I have taught middle primary (year 3/4) but also upper primary from years 5-7. I have taught hundreds of students in that time and inspired them to achieve their best in mathematics and also develop an interest in mathematics from an inquiry-based learning platform which involves investigating, doing for purpose and creating new concepts.
