When you teach maths, do your children learn? Research suggests we can achieve better outcomes by starting from their own ideas - and misconceptions. But we often make great efforts to avoid mentioning misconceptions altogether.
Primary school children sometimes seem to pick up mathematical misconceptions more easily than the ‘proper’ methods and concepts we try so hard to teach them. We shouldn’t shy away from these misconceptions though; research suggests we will develop better conceptual understanding if we confront them head on, discussing and exploring them explicitly with the children.
