Pedagogy | Shoutout to Maths teachers

A fascinating and compelling article. An interesting take on place value system (positional notation) on Khan Academy‘s content.

Also, a big shoutout to teachers, especially maths teachers, who are reading this. What are the really common mistakes and misconceptions that will dog a student’s life? As teachers, how can we stop the perpetuating nature of the “assumptive nature of a textbook.” Is there a method to anticipate potential misconceptions when teaching? Let us know in the comments below, after you have read the article.

The problem is that students learn names for places and rules for operating without thinking about the values and the relationships among these values that our place value system represents.
