In this article we have dealt with the concept of using some strategies to enhance the performance in basic mathematical operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division among rural upper primary children.
The strategies are Arithmetic games, Rhymes and Educational activities. The rural upper primary children find it very difficult to do the
basic mathematical operations as they were taught in the conventional method of teaching. By giving proper training in basic mathematical
operations through the activity based strategies, we can enhance the learners’ performance in mathematics. When they become thorough in
basic mathematical operations, they themselves get ready to do more complex operations in mathematics. They become more confident than
before in doing sums. Continuous practice in these strategies and proper guidance leads to the best performance of the rural upper primary
students in basic mathematical operations.
