Issues in Learning Math and Science

Instructional weaknesses’ in teaching maths and science

In broad terms it is the ‘technical’ term for teaching

Good teaching is quite an art, but good teachers know the science of teaching too, i.e. the universally effective practices in teaching. The science of teaching includes certain fundamental steps to be followed by teachers while teaching in classrooms (‘in-class processes’) and certain follow up activities after every teaching period (‘post-class processes’). Here is a list of five in-class processes and five post-class processes to be followed as a good teaching practice and the reality on the ground against each of ten processes.

Clearly, one of the toughest challenges in teaching maths and science is the lack of good teaching practices. School managements, principals, and heads of department of maths and science must urgently improve teaching practices of maths and science.
