初中一:数学课学什么?

初中一:数学题

初中一,上了 4 周,数学课也上了大概 6 堂课 (第一周调试期、全级数学测验不算)。

数学功课,到目前为止,只有 3 次,每一次,只花 15 分钟,就做完了。

课堂教学:老师基本上在给学生复习一些基本概念,如  0.6 x 10; 0.6 x 100; 0.6 / 10 怎么算。还复习画坐标。

这些题目,看来儿子在课堂上大部分都做对了,所以老师给了G 分-- Good effort.

有做错的地方,老师特别注明:“我们有一起讨论过,看来你现在明白了!好!”

老师:”你终于明白了!”

才开学,我只希望儿子适应新环境,学习独立,对他的学术没什么要求。

再过几个星期,如果数学还是没什么功课,我想,他就得在家多做些练习了。英国孩子上学没课本,数学课也一样没课本,所以也不知道老师的教学重点。不过我已经买了几本数学练习本,可以开始给他练一练。

    1. 没错。我儿子的中学数学题,可能在中国小学三年级的小朋友都学过了。这里教得慢,不过老师挺细心的,一直鼓励他,从来没有骂他笨。

      我下周开始,再多写一些。最近太忙了。不好意思。

    1. 我当然知道。英国学生,数学学太少,这问题很大。

      中国孩子,数学学太多,太深,太多填鸭式的计算,这样好吗?难道没问题吗?

      我儿子一星期,花在数学的功课,不超过30 分钟,我再教他一点,又花了一小时。

      我说过了,在英国,数学科虽重要,但一周才上3 小时的课,功课一周才一次,不会超过 30 分钟。我也没给他上家教。他的水平,属同辈的中等/中下水平。

      11-12 岁的孩子,一周花在功课的时间,大概是 6-7 小时。http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-17250653

      孩子该花多少时间做功课?上一任政府的指南如下:

      5-7 岁:1 周 1 小时
      14-16 岁: 每晚 2.5 小时

      也就是说,11-12 岁,一天约1 小时。

      “Labour’s guidelines recommend an hour a week for five to seven-year-olds, gradually rising to 2.5 hours per night for pupils aged between 14 and 16.”

      可是,很多家长抗议,说功课太多了,现任教育部长决定不设限,老师不给作业也行。

      看到了吗?两地教育差别多大?吓死人吧!

  1. 英国学生,数学学太少,这问题很大。Indeed indeed. I remember I have to do 30 questions of maths everyday in school. I don’t have natural aptitude for numbers but my Chinese school has turned me more proficient than the national average. I worried for my two boys, I am determined to do something in the future to remedy that… I know some parents send their children to kumon twice a week.

    1. After having worked in a secondary school for more than 4 years, including working in many maths lessons, I feel that most maths teachers are well trained, and they explained concepts brilliantly. They are hardworking.

      The problem is that most kids haven’t acquired the basic skills at primary before they reach 11 years old(E.g, Lots of kids can’t do simple adding and subtracting in column methods; they don’t know their timetables; they can’t do division with the bus-stop method.) A lot of parents don’t help either.

      I like the fact that maths concepts are taught well and are explained clearly.

      Drilling and parent participation can be improved.

      Kumon and whatever training method is good. But, understanding is still the key.

      1. I still think practice is key. I blame the fact that there isn’t enough practice when it comes to maths for my sons. So obviously they are going to struggle when they reach secondary school. No matter how well the teacher would have taught the students about concepts, without practice it all boils down to nothing. It’s the same in corporate world. Too much concept, not enough practitioner experience.

        Concept gives you a framework but I think no one build a nation by vision or concept alone. It’s all down to practice and hardwork.

      2. You’re absolutely right JoV.If you could help your sons at this age, they’ll really benefit. If only most parents are like you. My son’s primary school didn’t give him much homework throughout his Yr 1- Yr 6, and his junior school even failed the Ofsted inspection.
