INTRODUCTION

Pedagogy can be defined as concept or method of teaching, by which a person can gain attention of students towards a particular subject. It is considered as an academic discipline that shows how teachers make interaction with children during learning sessions. Pedagogy gives various ways through which a person can change own style of teaching and generate interest level in students so that they can do their work in own manner. Present report is made a critically discussion on strategies used by faculties to help students in studying a particular subject. For this process, special attention is given to children of 2nd class of primary schools who are not doing work in maths independently. In this regard, an investigation is done on current good practice and ways to improve skills of faculty members in primary sections. A reflection report is also highlighted in this assignment to elaborate the need of using different methods of teaching mathematics.  

TASK 1

1.1 Justification on area of interest for investigation

To guide children of small age through the maze of mathematical concept, is really a tough and demanding task. Faculty members in primary sectors, are required to use different-different strategies to bring and keep attention of students towards maths. In this context, activities of this subject can be incorporated in many ways into various curriculum areas. For example: Presenting a project of maths in art form which shows mathematical shapes and diagrams in colourful and attractive manner, brings attention of primary students. They will set their minds that maths include various geometrical figures, which have definite compositions. But as have observed through psychological point of view that in primary sections, children have faced various issues in doing homework in own manner. They always need support of adults and their guidance for the same. Therefore, as a researcher, to made an investigation report, “ The need of using different methods of teaching mathematics in primary school” seems to a perfect topic.

Another reason behind choosing this topic is- use of new technologies for specific needs of students. High technologies in educational sector give opportunity to faculty members to teach  in more efficient manner. Through this process, they can bring attention of children as keep their concentration as well towards a particular subjects. For example: Through digital technologies,  knowledge provide to students help them in understanding the concept as well as remembering it for long time also. In context with primary learners, they have own specific needs to understand a particular subject. Especially mathematics, as this subject seems to difficult to realize and read in own manner. Therefore, teachers are required to develop their skills and change pattern of teaching because if students in early age feel unable to do own task and afraid from maths then they will never overcome from threats. It will develop hypertension in minds of students and interest of them in this subject also not generated. Thus, through investigation on this topic, researchers can find ways through which teachers can help students in doing their homework independently.  

There are various ways by which teachers of primary sections can develop learners' interest in maths. It includes lecture, heuristic, inductive-deductive, analytic-synthetic methods and more. But before adopting any method, it is necessary for primary faculties to determine catching power of students and ensure that they are understanding the concepts teach to them or not. For this process, faculties can walk throughout classroom to observe how students work on assigned problems and look out their dynamics. Ask some creative or interesting questions with children on individual level before starting a topic, will generate interest and curiosity of them that what teacher will teach today. After completing the session, use formative assessments to test how much students learned by a particular way of teaching. In this regard, testing criteria should be done in particular manner and should be integrated into planning procedure. For example: Instead of quick exit question, use a five-minute quiz program to ensure if students have mastered after teaching a topic of maths or how much they covered in a particular lesson. This would help in determining catching or learning power of children of year 2 in primary sectors. Along with this, through testing process, a teacher can judge effectiveness of own teaching method also. They can determine the need to change own pattern of teaching and adopt best technique as well.

1.2 Ways through which knowledge from investigation of an area of interest could improve subject

Teachers in primary sections play an important role in life of students as they help in fostering academic skills. In context with maths subjects, it is considered as big challenge for educators to overcome from socially acceptable thought i.e. 'a person can never be good at maths'. For students of primary sessions, their minds are not set on a particular subject. Therefore, this is the only age where a teacher can develop interest of them in studies. Through different learning and teaching patterns, tutors can help kids in having a growth mindset. By promoting practice and persistence, they can aid learners in making good at maths. In addition to this, they can tell students about importance and power of this subject with high expectations and enthusiasm.

As investigation is done on “The need of using different methods of teaching mathematics in primary school”, therefore, through this research, it has evaluated that there are many ways by which primary faculties can improve their way of teaching or specific pedagogy. Such improvement can be made on the basis of mapping into teaching programme, opportunities to engage students in study, negotiating responsibilities, planning dissemination and more. For example: By asking questions in between lecture, educators can judge students' level of understanding. They can determine if children are paying attention towards what is taught to them or not. Through this observation, tutors can analyse need to change their way of teaching pattern. Program mapping allows teachers in creating a visual map of teaching session which helps in exploring how learners are meeting program-level outcomes with course-level. With this assistance, curriculum mapping is used to examine in what manner, maths has to be taught so that learners of primary sections become able to solve questions in own manner. While by bringing digital technologies at classroom, aid teachers to show concept of maths in artistic and visualise manner. They can gain attention of primary learners through this technique as well as develop their interest also.  

TASK 2

2.1 Justification on selection of sources for investigation

For conducting investigation on present topic i.e. “The need of using different methods of teaching mathematics in primary school”, I have used both primary and secondary sources. As both methods helps me in making a critical research to judge specific needs of primary learners to solve maths problem independently. In order to determine what type of problems they face in studying such a difficult subject, I have used primary research methods first. Under this process, I have taken an evaluation session to observe learning skills of students of year 2. For this purpose, I have asked some basic questions to examine performance of students by organising some curriculum programs. Under this program, students are asked to solve some puzzles in individual and others in group manner. This would help in determining creativeness and interest of kids in maths. Along with this, to identify whether teachers are good at their part of work or they need to change teaching pattern, I have taken feedback of each student of primary sessions. For this assistance, an authentic problem has been given to students and let them struggle to figure out various ways to solve it. As an investigator, my main job is to make all learners engaged in problem by putting time to time right questions. This has helped me in exploring creativeness of students and determining their level of concentration. In addition to this, by provide little bit information in between solving a task, helps in increasing productivity of students. Thus, in this regard, interest level of students may increase and they will analyse the effectiveness of maths subject. In addition to this, I have analysed that kids get curious and excited about maths when they get chance to solve real-life problems in mathematical manner. For instance: Tasks related to redesign a house redesign by providing them with some dimensions of walls and different size of windows. Further, let them to determine in what manner they can construct a new house aid them to get knowledge about several geometrical figures and their uses.Disseration writing service at pocke-friendly prices.

In addition to primary methods, I have also used secondary source for further investigation on development of teaching methodologies. For this purpose, I have go through some books and journals which was available on internet sources. Under these books, various authors and writers have given their views and opinion about specific needs of primary students. Through ju
