Title
(EN) MATHEMATICAL AID
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'AIDE A L'APPRENTISSAGE DES MATHEMATIQUES
Abstract
(EN)
A mathematical aid which represents relationships between numbers in a physical form so as to provide assistance in teaching or learning mathematic concepts. The mathematical aid comprises a series of symbols (A) each representing a number in a mathematically ordered sequence. The relationship between the numbers is represented by physical properties and each symbol has the physical properties relevant to the number it represents. In this way, the relationships between the numbers in the sequence can be determined by examination of the physical properties of the symbols representing the numbers. The physical properties may include shape colouring and surface texture applied to the symbols. The symbols may be of a three-dimensional form such as beads (A) strung together on string B. Alternatively the symbols may be of a two-dimensional form such as pictorial symbols on a chart.

Le dispositif décrit, qui représente les relations entre les nombres sous en forme physique, sert à faciliter l'enseignement ou l'apprentissage des concepts mathématiques. Ledit dispositif d'aide à l'apprentissage des mathématiques comprend une série de symboles (A) représentant chacun un nombre dans une séquence correspondant à l'ordre mathématique. La relation entre les nombres est représentée par des propriétés physiques et chaque symbole a les propriétés physiques correspondant au nombre qu'il le représente. Ainsi, la relation entre les nombres de la séquence peut être déterminée par observation des propriétés physiques des symboles représentant les nombres. Les propriétés physiques peuvent être le coloriage de formes et la texture de la surface appliquée sur les symboles. Les symboles peuvent se présenter sous une forme tridimensionnelle, tels que des perles (A) enfilées ensemble sur une ficelle (B). Dans une autre variante, les symboles peuvent se présentés sous une forme bidimensionnelle, telle que des pictogrammes figurant sur un tableau.
