An elementary math teacher in Australia, Dennis Roeder knows the subject is one that students struggle to understand, especially at early ages. It requires extra concentration and effort, something that differs with every student. As Roeder has experienced in his time as a teacher, teaching math also requires the instructor to employ various methods, some of which are explained below.

Add a visual element

Explain solutions

Teachers are encouraged to get students to describe, verbally, how they reached an answer as this can help other students learn the basic concepts. As Dennis Roeder knows, many students hesitate to raise their hands to ask questions. If those who answer are required to explain their process, they are helping other classmates.

Individual feedback

Many students benefit from having personal feedback from their teachers about what they did right and where they can improve upon going forward. Rather than just provide the correct answer, teachers should also give students an opportunity to see where they made mistakes. Doing so helps students figure out solutions on their own.

Dennis Roeder is a graduate of the University of Sydney, where he undertook a degree in Education.
