A math lesson plan outlines the content and course of a math lesson. Math lesson plans act as guides for teachers as they introduce and practice important math concepts with their students. It is therefore important that math lesson plans are designed keeping the best teaching practices for math teachers in mind.
A good math lesson plan should allow for plenty of practice of newly learned math concepts. In mathematics, the importance of practice cannot be emphasized enough. A math lesson plan that includes time for practicing the mathematical operation just taught warrants positive results. For one thing, practicing math problems enhances retention of the lesson learned. Also, practicing different kinds of math problems makes it easier to highlight flaws in understanding, if any exist. When a child answers practice math problems in the classroom, teachers can get immediate feedback on student understanding, and review concepts that seem confusing to the students.
For better results, a math lesson plan should assign practice math problems as homework too. It is possible that while a student can solve practice math problems immediately after they are explained, he/she faces problems solving similar problems at a later point in time. In such cases, teachers can detect the problem based on the student’s completion of the homework problems, and offer to explain the math concept to the student once again.
Luckily for teachers, there are plenty of websites that offer good math lesson plans online for free. These free math lesson plans can always be modified by teachers to include as many opportunities for math practice as deemed necessary. Teachers can find many websites that offer free practice problems as well. Math worksheets can be found for any age group or difficulty level.
