Maths Hysteria - Dr Peggy Lynch on Educating Australia's Teachers

Maths Hysteria - Dr Peggy Lynch on Educating Australia's Teachers

Ratings: (0)|Views: 1,402|Likes:
Why is the mere mention of mathematics enough to terrify some people? What happened to (some of) us in our formative years to make us blacklist maths for life? Did your maths teacher wear a safari suit with knee length ribbed socks and brown sandals? In any event, many of us have a love/hate relationship with maths. Yet, there are no two ways about it, we have to use mathematical skills in our everyday life.

School of Education’s researcher Dr Peggy Lynch believes every child has the potential to enjoy learning maths and to understand why maths is relevant.

Very well written Allayne, I agree if teachers make maths exciting when teaching it at school there may be heaps more people in the world who actually like maths. Bland teaching does not make for happy students, obviously this lady who you have written about had a love for numbers from a young age and has done well in her career
