ENHANCING MATHEMATICS LEARNING THROUGH MATHEMATICAL DISCUSSIONS

Abstract

Mathematical discussions provide a platform for students to talk and exchange ideas and thoughts about mathematical concepts they have learnt. These discussions allow them to reflect on their own understanding as well as ideas put forth by others. Through these mathematical discussions, students learn to be more critical about their learning and understanding. Hence,they become more confident mathematics learners. How do we encourage such discussions in the mathematics classroom?
