Topic (follow-up to Friday, 28th January 2011): Why do we need to teach mathematics to under 16s? As it happened on Monday, 31st January 2011, 20:30 - 22:00 GMT

RT @ColinTGraham: Today's topic is: "Why do we need to teach mathematics to under 16s?" That is serious question! Mathematics vs functional numeracy #mathchat

RT @suburbanlion: Perhaps an interesting point of discussion might be "neuroplasticity". Build mathematical connections early & then reinforce them. #mathchat

RT @suburbanlion: Yes! RT @dweksler Is it especially important to show young Ss that math is interesting, beautiful, out there to be discovered? #mathchat

RT @dweksler: Math portfolios for Ss to look at development over time. Certainly all Ss won't be at the same level, seeing improvement is vital #mathchat

RT @ColinTGraham: Let's change focus a little: Is it ok to investigate topics and leave questions totally unanswered until much later, if at all? #mathchat

RT @ColinTGraham: Someone needs to prove it... do students? RT @bucharesttutor: Pythagoras theorem needs to be proved b4 it is shown as examples... #mathchat

RT @republicofmath: By having teacher close mouth often. @ColinTGraham How to integrate student Qs in a 'tight' timetable such as HS teachers have? #mathchat

RT @ColinTGraham: @republicofmath My grandmother was fond of saying: "You have two eyes, two ears and one mouth. Use them in that proportion!" #mathchat

RT @republicofmath: Talk is fairly cheap. Listening is skill & art that needs to be practiced, does not always come easily. Rewards are great #mathchat
