Surrounded by a vast number of educational methods one often wonders which would be the best in the teaching process. And while I enjoy having many tools at hand to assist me, I have found that no approach works for all the students. I often remind myself of Maria Montessori’s thoughtful advice to “follow the child”. Often it’s better to take time to observe the child and identify their genuine interests in order to be able to adjust the teaching approach accordingly. I believe that the teacher’s goal shouldn’t be to take away students’ freedom and turn them into submissive followers, but to let them be free in expressing their genuine interests and finding ways to incorporate math into activities of their own persuit. One would be amazed to find that use of math can be found in pretty much everything.
