Hi, I'm trying to write about the pros and cons of using practical activites to aid learning in maths classrooms. Everywhere I read says that 'evidence' proves young people learn better when the lesson is more active as opposed to teacher-centred but nowhere can I find actual evidence! Have any of you ever seen results from a study that might help me? Or even if any of you have had experiences in your classroom where you have seen children who carried out practicals retain knowledge and have a deeper understanding than children who did not carry out practicals? I will of course reference you in my essay Any help would be very much appreciated!
