Aline Zghayyar Review of Literature There is an increasing recognition that affective factors play a critical role in the teaching and learning of mathematics. A number of researchers have investigated the relationship between the affective and the cognitive domains. Maker (1982) emphasized the importance of this relationship: It is impossible to separate the cognitive from the affective domains in any activity….The most important is that there is a cognitive component to every affective object
Why mathematics is important: Devlin believes that mathematics has four faces 1) Mathematics is a way to improve thinking as problem solving. 2) Mathematics is a way of knowing. 3) Mathematics is a way to improve creative medium. 4) Mathematics is applications. (Mann, 2005). Because mathematics has very important role in our life, teaching math in basic education is as important as any other subjects. Students should study math to help them how to solve problems and meet the practical needs such
computer science. But in computing, we need more of a particular branch of the so-called mathematics: discrete mathematics. Discrete mathematics has become popular thanks to their applications in computer science. Notations and concepts of discrete mathematics are used to study problems in algorithmic and programming. Development From the historical point of view, computing has roots dating back to the mathematics of antiquity, through two main currents: algorithms, which systematizes the notion
Math is a variety of complex skills. It helps us with everyday life. It also helps us prepare for the future such as jobs. Math is an essential subject of study. Mathematics is a very important subject. No matter which profession you choose in future it is used everywhere. That’s why it is significant to have an excellent understanding of math. The two math goals I have are to get better with geometry and the order of operations. This is because last year on NY State Common Core Math test I’m
hope to change the mindset of teachers and students so that they will be enchanted in learning Maths and enjoy exploring the subject. For these reasons I have chosen to pursue a degree course in Mathematics and Computing. I participated in various international competitions such as the Australian Mathematics Competition where I obtained a Credit in 2010 putting myself in the top 45% in Brunei and the World Maths Day organized by the Com...
Mathematics - The True Universal Language The true universal human language is not punctuated by accents or vowel intonations; it does not spring from any particular continent; it rises above ink on paper, scratches on the earth or daubs of paint on the wall of a cave. No, I am a firm believer that the true universal human language is composed of numbers. For while numerical characters may vary across the globe, the logic they convey transcends borders, localities, and customs. The "language"
Mathematics I have always enjoyed mathematics from an early age. As I progressed through A-level, I began to appreciate the importance of mathematics in other science and in commercial life. I believe that a degree in mathematics will leave me very versatile in terms of a future career choice. From 1992 onwards, I was selected every year to represent the school for Hans Woyda Mathematics competition between Home Counties schools. In 1997/98, I was captain of the team. Previously, we have reached
Hindu-Arabic Mathematics Several cultures have influenced the advancement of mathematics throughout the years, causing controversies and breakthrough discovers over time. Although the Greek and European civilizations have been accredited with majority of the innovations associated with mathematics, the Hindu-Arabic culture has put forth some of the greatest contributions to the subject. It is believed that Indian mathematicians were not given the deserved credit or acknowledgements in the history
Expressing Creativity through Mathematics After his visit to a Shell Research Laboratory, my high school teacher in math told us in class that he was so happy with his education, because mathematics had helped him to understand the explanations and demonstrations that had been given by the Shell researchers. He said, "If you master mathematics then you can understand everything." That was certainly an exaggeration, but it nevertheless sounded like a golden message. Since I definitely wanted to
