Every child has different learning ability and therefore it will be a good idea to determine each child’s maths literacy level for them to succeed.

It says that people construct their own understanding and knowledge of the world, through experiencing things and reflecting on those experiences. Constructivist teaching is based on the belief that learning occurs as learners are actively involved in a process of meaning and knowledge construction as opposed to passively receiving information.

Learners are the makers of meaning and knowledge. In both cases, the theory of constructivism suggests that learners construct knowledge out of their experiences. However, constructivism is often associated with pedagogic approaches that promote active learning, or learning by doing. The history of constructivism and how it has changed over time, TIn this century, Jean Piaget and John Dewey developed theories of childhood development.Piaget believed that humans learn through the construction of one logical structure after another. He also concluded that the logic of children and their modes of thinking are initially entirely different from those of adults. The implications of this theory and how he applied them have shaped the foundation for constructivist education, what is now called a Progressive Education, that led to the evolution of constructivism. Among the educators, philosophers, psychologists, and sociologists who have added new
