Philosophical Organic Approach--Logic of Teaching Numeration and Number "Zero"
Odigie, V. O.; Odionye, A.
Journal of Education and Practice, v6 n2 p163-168 2015
In the past years, rote learning, especially in the teaching and process was the usual practice. This takes the form of indoctrination; Children do not learn through rote memorization, it is only an end in itself. True learning is that which is achieved through the understanding and insight of the problem at stake. An application of philosophy through the play-way method was suggested. This is because it could assist the child develop his mathematical capacity for independent logical thinking and increase his perceptual abilities through the use of all his senses. The writers have prepared materials to represent the numbers under geometrical forms and with objects, which will simplify the combination of numbers, under the organic approach.
