Constructivist method in teaching Mathematics

New way of teaching mathematics in elementary school.

Traditional teaching of mathematics in elementary school puts emphasis on practicing addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. When doing so, however, we may give to pupils considerably more. They can develop their ability to examine different situations, seek appropriate solutions to problems. We can help them to gain experience in organizing events, in processing data putting together different ideas of arithmetic, geometry and combinatorics. Most of these skills can be developed through different means listed in special textbooks which were developed for this teaching method.
