You deal with numbers during numerous instances everyday. Have you ever wondered what kind of numbers these are? Nominal? Cordinal? Ordinal? Or neither? Well, I didn't know either, till today. It was interesting how Dr Yeap explained the different uses of numbers and what they are used for, using examples, which include videos, pictures and charts.
Here's a link that shows you the different types of numbers. Click Here!
Dr Yeap, also covered a segment on theories by Vygotsky and Bruner, which were useful in understanding why he used some techniques as a Teacher himself. These include learning in a social setting and teaching using the CPA approach.
Number Games, which Dr Yeap refers to as 'PROBLEMS' are interesting ways to keep his students alert after a long day at work, as they tried their best to figure out the answers. The first problem was easy to solve. For the first time, I was thankful that my name had only 6 letters! The second problem was challenging. I couldn't figure out the answer till he went through one possible way of finding it. It was interesting!
