Teaching strategies, for all practical purposes, means the same thing. The person has no readily available procedure for finding the solution. In the final instrument to measure instructional practice, you would be asked to what extent you use each strategy in your courses (at a specific level of mathematics) and you would respond on a scale. Bernice Lau Pui Wah is currently head of the Department of Mathematics in a primary school. But the effectiveness of direct teaching is evident.

They then subtract one for each bar getting 39 and divide this by three to get the answer 13. Ramakrishnan has been writing primary mathematics books since 1997. This method is especially useful when: you teach kids who respond better to visual stimuli (e.g. pictures, drawings, etc); you try to provide math homework help but the conventional methods do not really work well with your kids; and your kids has not learnt algebra yet and solving the math problems with algebra is not an option.
