Why do you need a tomato, apple and sweets at the lesson?
What lesson? It is holiday time. There are still classes in our school, though. AISU is an international school, meaning that we work in June, as children in all international schools do.
Thus, the children are continuing studying, remotely but it is as always interesting. Ms Nastia, the maths teacher, started a lesson with two objects. A red tomato, a green apple and delicious sweets. The children were intrigued but the topic of the lesson was simple, “The parts of the whole”.
Since primary school students find it easier to memorise things visually and most of our students are visuals, the teacher uses interesting visual stimuli. It was the tomatoes that helped the students to learn fractions, whereas halves and thirds were taught using apples and sweets. It was exciting and efficient as always.
