Playing Games; Learning Math
Playing games was the method used by Hannah Missir, Math lecturer in New York, at her math clinics to teach her students mathematical concepts.
Ms. Missir said that it is necessary for students to not only be able to do math, but to apply concepts.
She added that several teachers here in Dominica would like to see change in the methods used to teach Mathematics.
During the math clinics, Ms. Missir said that she tried to facilitate all the students and their different methods of learning.
Ms. Missir said that she hopes her students at the math clinic develop an appreciation for math after the clinics are done.
