This time of year many students tackle multiplication times tables. These resources can be of help for parents and teachers alike:

 

Math two: Keep in mind the Goals

What are the goals of your math teaching? Are they...

My student can add, simplify, and multiply fractions
My student can divide by ten, 100, and 1000.
These are all "subgoals". But what is the final objective of learning school arithmetic?

to finish the book by the finish of school year
make definite the kids pass the check \.\.?
Or do you have goals such as:

Think about these goals:

Students require to be able to navigate their lives in this ever-so-complex modern world.
This involves dealing with taxes, loans, credit cards, purchases, budgeting, shopping. Our kids require to be able to handle funds wisely. All that requires lovely understanding of parts, proportions, and percents.

Another important objective of arithmetic schooling as a whole is to enable the scholars to understand knowledge around us. In today's world, this includes a tiny bit of scientific knowledge. Being able to read through it and make sense of it requires knowing sizable and tiny numbers, statistics, probability, percents.

And then more. They must prepare our students for further studies in math and science. Not everyone ultimately needs algebra, but lots of do, and teenagers don't always know what profession they might select or finish up with.

I'd like to add more broad objective of math schooling: teaching deductive reasoning. Of coursework geometry is a lovely example of this, but when taught properly, other areas of school math can be as well.

Then more objective that I personally feel strongly about: let students see some beauty of arithmetic and learn to like it, or at the least, make definite they do not feel negatively about arithmetic.

The more you can keep these sizable actual goals in mind, the better you can connect your sub goals to them. And the more you can keep the goals and the sub goals in mind, the better teacher you will be.

For example, adding, simplifying, and multiplying fractions all connects with a broader objective of understanding parts or part and whole. It will soon lead to ratios, proportions, and percent. Also, all fraction operations are a needed basis for solving rational equations and doing the operations with rational expressions (in the coursework of algebra studies).

Tying in with the goals, keep in mind that the BOOK or CURRICULUM is a device to accomplish the goals -- not a objective in itself. Don't ever be a slave to any math book.
