My other blog…
This blog is to provide information and resources to parents of teenagers. Please share if you know anyone who would be interested. Thank you!
A global learner needs to understand the concepts and see how they fall fit together before they are able to understand the steps needed to solve a math problem.
It’s the global learner who is more likely to ask me “why do I need to learn this?”.
On the other end of the continuum, the sequential learner needs to approach a problem systematically and will want to see the list of steps needed to solve a problem before they can understand the “big idea”.
It is the sequential learner who will request that I “just show them the steps”.
A simple analogy – a sequential learner will be able to start working on a puzzle by playing with the pieces, probably putting the edges together first, then working inward.
A global learner won’t feel like they can start unless they can see the picture of the finished puzzle first.
