This is a paper I wrote for teachers, based on my experience of teaching math at the grade 10 as well as grade twelve levels in Canada and in Malaysia. The key is to proceed step by step, and define all terms when they are first introduced into the lesson. Peer tutoring is also enormously helpful.
A number of commentators noted the persistence of a “science deficit” in Muslim education. Math serves as a foundation of the present-day quantitative sciences. Thus, a suitable mathematics program is indispensable in addressing the “science deficit.” After providing a historical perspective, the paper explores the nexus between science and present-day knowledge. It also recommends several strategies for enhancing the teaching of science, with a focus on mathematics.
