why do we need to practice
Why do we need to “Practice”
  • Reinforce and extend student learning.
  • Working independently and most of the time. (does not mean in isolation)
  • Problem solving and modeling situations

From BES Mathematics/Pangarau(2007)

Tasks that require students to engage in complex and non-algorithmic thinking promote exploration of connections across math's concepts

Tasks which are open ended rather than procedural provide students with something they need to think about, not simply are disguised way of practicing already demonstrated algorithms.
