Recap of Week 3

Based on the experiences of both course leaders and students, we provide a summary of week 3.

Welcome to Week 4!

In Week 3 we focused on the Two Basics and Variation theory as Asian mathematics teaching methods. Based on the experiences of Educators and learners, in this video, we provide a summary of Week 3, and respond to some of the comments and questions made during the week.

I have added one more visual explanation of the ‘animal problem’ at the bottom of this step.

In Week 4 we will look at one final principle and then explore how Asian countries manage to integrate these principles into their classroom activities. The key term here is ‘professional development’. We will give some examples from a variety of countries.

We hope you enjoy this final week!

This video was uploaded on Friday, the 21th of September, 2018 and is based on the comments made in the second run of the MOOC.
