Practical teaching and learning process in the labs helps students in internalizing scientific method and understanding mathematical science concept introduced. Several approaches have been suggested to improve teaching and learning, which among others, by integrating the elements of software use in the course curriculum. Using Cases to Transform Mathematics Teaching And Learning: Improving Instruction in Geometry And Measurement (Ways of Knowing in Science and Mathematics (Paper)) by Margaret Schwan Smith, Marjorie A. Henningsen, Edward A. Silver, Mary Kay Stein, Melissa Boston and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at .

1. Introduction. Education is fundamental to all other human rights (Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, , UNESCO, ).As noted by Lee, “[I]f children receive basic primary education, they will likely be literate and numerate and will have the basic social and life skills necessary to secure a job, to be an active member of a peaceful . Teaching and learning mathematics are complex effect on student learning of changing a single teaching practice may be difficult to discern because of the simultaneous effects of both the other teaching activities that surround it and the context in which the teaching takes place. Thus, as teachers seek to improve their teaching.

Yet mathematics and science teachers often say that they feel the least prepared to teach students how to read to learn: “I'm a math [science] teacher. I wasn't trained to teach reading.” Helping students with mathematics and science texts, however, is not the same as teaching students to read. Effective teachers of mathematics create purposeful learning experiences for students through solving problems in relevant and meaningful contexts. There is ample evidence showing the need for problem-solving to be an integral part of all mathematics learning. Teaching through problem solving, however, means that students learn mathematics through.

The paper focused on the effective use of science and mathematics teaching and learning strategies for the improving students’ academic performance. It highlighted on the concept of teaching and learning strategies, teacher’s and learners’ centre strategies, advantages and disadvantages of each strategy.

This book focuses on how to improve the teaching and learning of primary level mathematics education within resource-constrained contexts. It builds on two large numeracy projects within South Africa which speak to broader, global concerns and highlight how research and development not only enables one to meet ethical imperatives but also explore how further.

This approach to improving teaching and learning in departments fulfils many of the requirements proposed by the literature on effective professional development (for example: Cordingley et al., ; Desimone, ; Timperley, ), including active learning, a collegial approach and a focus on subject knowledge.

It is hard to imagine learning to do science, or learning about science, without doing laboratory or field work. Experimentation underlies all scientific knowledge and understanding. Laboratories are wonderful settings for teaching and learning science.

A third reason cited by critics of science textbooks is that textbooks emphasize product rather than process (Donahue, ). In an inquiry-based approach to learning that accompanied the post-Sputnik era of the s, science education has focused largely on doing science rather than reading science.
