31. Subject Knowledge and Academic Skills

Knowledge is a familiarity with someone or something, which can include facts, information, descriptions, or skills acquired through experience or education. It can refer to the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject. It can be implicit (as with practical skill or expertise) or explicit (as with the theoretical understanding of a subject); it can be more or less formal or systematic.

Academic skills are those skills that allow students to be successful in their studies. Many of these skills sit on a continuum with graduate skills, which will allow our students to be successful employees and citizens. Student academic skills can be developed in a variety of ways. The most effective way is through explicit development in your teaching linked with assessment.

Objective:

  • To strengthen the students’ arithmetic abilities give them a practice to recall and judge with accuracy.
  • To develop students’ mind calculations and measure basic critical reading, math and writing skills.
  • Develop techniques of speed and accuracy.
  • To create awareness of the contribution of great mathematicians and scientists.
  • To inculcate competitive temper. To invoke curiosity.
