Math can be either a really fun subject to teach-or really boring.
It doesn't have to be boring though, since it's the easiest subject that can be "spiced up" for the students-by simply relating it to their lives.
Mastering math skills does not have to be a chore. Sitting at a desk doing drills will help a student become proficient in math, but such tedious tasks will not instil a love of learning.
Make math enjoyable by playing games to reinforce the lessons taught each week. Playing games will help students strengthen their math skills while showing them that learning can truly be fun.
Al-Hidayah in collaboration with Scitech did just that. The whole floor of our Musallah was filled with maths activities. Students were manipulating objects and having fun but at the same time learning the concepts of maths like fractions and decimals.
One student's reaction says it all: "Brother Jamiel, I never knew maths was so much fun, can we have this kind of Maths all the time?"
