To develop mathematical proficiency is to develop tasks that enables a child to build connections. These connections are ideas gathered to form a big network of ideas.
When a child acquired this, he will be effective in learning new concepts and procedures.
When the network of ideas is well constructed, he will have less to remember as the retrieval of information from the memory bank will process information quickly.
This increases retention and recall processes and thus enhance the problem-solving abilities.
Overall, it will improves the attitudes and the belief of a child as he has developed a more positive self-concept and confidence in learning mathematics.
