Part #2

From Chaos to Cohesion: The Benefits of Spiraling in Math Education

3 Things You Will Learn In Part 2

Idea 1: Spiraling

Spiraling is a teaching approach where concepts are revisited and reinforced over time. Instead of teaching one strand at a time, concepts from different strands are interconnected and taught together. It helps students understand the interconnectedness of math concepts and prepares them for real-world problem-solving.

Idea 2: Contextual Learning

Spiraling encourages teaching math in a contextual way, where concepts are connected to real-world applications and themes. By focusing on key themes and questions, teachers can integrate multiple strands and skills. For example, planning a birthday party or a trip can involve various math concepts like measurement, data management, and probability.

Idea 3: Long-Range Planning

When implementing spiraling in the classroom, it's important to create long-range plans that cover all curriculum expectations. Teachers can use provided resources from the Ministry of Education or adapt them to fit their classroom's needs. However, it's crucial to consider the pacing and timing of concepts, ensuring they align with students' readiness and the flow of the school year.
