Action Plans for Weak Students in Mathematics

Action Plans for Weak Students in Mathematics

Many of the students find it challenging to learn Maths and understand its concepts. This makes them weak in the subject leading to failure in the examinations. Though they are good at learning and brilliant at other subjects, they are nevertheless, sometimes incapable of solving mathematical problems. Therefore, teachers need to make each student prepare for all subjects. Here are a few tips or plans by which teachers and even parents can help their children to improve their mathematical skills.

Objective to Learn

Before the teachers start teaching Maths and ask students to solve problems, it is required for them to explain the objective of learning Maths and its concepts. Say, for example, what is the need to learn about Roman numerals? They are used for ranking or expressing the classroom numbers such as I, II, III, etc. Also, they are used in analog watches to display time.

Build a Threat-free Environment

While students do require to realise that there are outcomes to their actions, way far motivating for students than threats are positive support.  When educators create a protected, supportive atmosphere for students, asserting their belief in a student’s capabilities rather than putting out the consequences of not doing things, students will feel more motivated to do their job.

Make Students Responsible

Distributing students classroom works  is a fabulous way to create a fellowship and to provide students with a spirit of motivation. Most of them will see classroom duties as an opportunity rather than a load and will work hard to meet the expectations. They can be allowed to take turns driving activities by the teachers so that each student feels honoured and appreciated.

Use Innovative Methods of Learning

Learning could be made interesting if teachers could use new methods of teaching. They can make use of Maths working models to explain different types of concepts. Like when they have to teach circle theorem, where theories or notions are described based on the circle, teachers can use the model of a circular object, to show its diameter, radius, chord, tangent and other related things.

Apart from these, teachers can also begin with positive competitions to encourage students to learn more effectively. They can offer rewards to the performing students or ask them to work together with their classmates, provide them with feedback for their work and always keep track of their progress.
