It's challenging to help kids learn without telling them what to do, and most parents (most people) don't know enough about the rich and beautiful world of mathematics to be able to do this properly. I don't agree that math is a very difficult subject. It can be challenging, yet, but mathematics is a celebration of thought -- it is rewarding, creative and natural.<br /><br />Some people think I'm strange when I talk like this, but most of what is being taught in schools as 'mathematics' is actually algorithms, procedures and memorization -- almost no mathematics at all. And memorizing algorithms is difficult and boring. No wonder people have the wrong idea about mathematics.<br /><br />Several times a week I'll be sharing thoughts and bits of mathematics I see in the world around me. Mathematics is about wonder and seeing the world in a connected way. I hope in this way you can get a sense of what mathematics is!Mike Naylorhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/17729299407160694706noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-175911120407580792.post-84298367249487616872012-06-11T06:30:54.772-07:002012-06-11T06:30:54.772-07:00I think at the time math is very difficult subject...I think at the time math is very difficult subject, parents should help kids in solving math problems. and about 12 sided I want to share a simple definition as-12 sided polygon is called as dodecagon, This is one type of regular polygons, it may be regular or irregular. Itâ€™s a 12 sided closed figure.<br /><a href="http://forum-3.com/post272772.html#p272772" rel="nofollow">Volume of a Sphere Formula</a>harunhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/06221062723275477038noreply@blogger.com
