Day 1 Reflection - My experience with today's activities

Wow! Today's activities are a revelation to me that maths is so fun and interesting. In Playing the game in problem 1, we found that there are many methods to find the solution of which letter in our name is counted number ninety nine. Through exploring the many methods to derive the solution we learnt rote counting, rational counting, patterning and multiples of certain numbers.

When teaching children how to do something, one of the successful ways to do is by using games. Games allow children to learn while they are having fun. They don't even realise that they are learning as children play spontaneously. With tasks such as counting that are learned from repetition, different games allow children to continuously having fun in the learning process. It also helps them to cultivate a thinking mind and understanding of numerical logic as they play the game.
