NFLS Teacher Zhu Shengqiang Lecturing in “Master Teachers’ Classroom”
Nanjing “Master Teachers’ Classroom” was held in NFLS on the afternoon of November 10. Master Math teacher of Jiangsu, core member of Nanjing High School Math Group, teacher Zhu Shengqiang of NFLS was invited to teach a class about Math learning.
Math is very import in high school because it is one of the subjects that are included in selective exams like College Entrance Examination. To learn Math well, one needs a solid foundation, independent thinking and a certain amount of practice.
Many students have realized the importance of Math after entering high school. In order to improve and achieve a better result in exams, they usually spend more time on practice. Is it true that the more practice you do, the more productive you will be? Now that the time they spend on study remains the same, what should they do for a better understanding of this subjec as to have better solutions to the problems?
To this Teacher Zhu Shengqiang put forward 3 essential points. First, the learner must have a solid foundation. Neglecting foundation will have a bad effect later. A good foundation enables you to deal with different problems with different application of the fundamental knowledge. Second, the learner should not aim at sheer quantity of practice, because it is not only bad for one to have a breakthrough, but also easy to arouse negative attitude that makes things worse. Third, the learner needs to think deeply, to construct a clear knowledge network, to summarize and understand the mathematical thinking behind so that he may good deep into the subject and achieve an ideal result.
In the end Teacher Zhu expressed his thanks to “Master Teachers’ Classroom” for this opportunity as a volunteer to provide service, and hoped that his lecture would be beneficial to the audience.
