Using spacial learning tools of numbers and shapes to explore the relationship between them. Unleash the sprit of makers and try creative stacking. The application of numbers and shapes can briefly be divided into two, either using the accuracy of to describe certain attributes of shapes or adapting shapes for intuitiveness to describe certain relationships between numbers. By integrating numbers and shapes, abstractive mathematical languages and quantity relationship can be combined with intuitive geometric graphics and spacial relationships. By this integration of abstractive and integrative thoughts, complex questions can be simplified and abstract ones intuitive, optimize the methods of solving a problem.
With twelve different colors, explore the wonders of the pentomino. The pentomino, also known as the “5-omino” involves geometry, topology, operations research, graph theory and other fields within the mathematic world. Through arrangements of two-dimensional graphics, student’s two-dimensional spacial perspectives can be enhanced, allowing them to use methods such as shifting, turning and flipping when solving a problem.
By observing, discussing and categorizing scattered information, seek the arrangement patterns of the beans, which then leads students to find the four basic forms and complete all possible arrangements. Using simple games and rules to cultivate student’s speculation, verification and logical thinking abilities.
Using the arrangement of various Soma cubes to make creative graphics and represent the graphics in forms of numbers. Through splitting and combing operations of three-dimensional shapes, student’s spacial perceptions can be enhanced and can then realize that one graph can have various assemble ways.
Peg Solitaire, also known as “Sole Noble”, is a self-challenging board game that can be traced back to the France nobles in the 18th+G18 century. The French Peg Solitaire, Chinese HuaRong Path (Slide Block Puzzle) and the Hungarian Rubik’s Cube are known as the three impossibles of the puzzle world. Through completing various numbers of Peg Solitaire challenges, student’s thinking and problem solving abilities can be enhanced. Along with trying out other solutions, which can allow students to gain multiple ideas of how to solve a mathematical problem.
Understand the purpose of multiplication, along with multi-level understanding of math and realization of applying math to real-life problems. Allowing students to through sorting and distributing activities to understand the meaning of division under certain circumstances.
