Sorting and classification are fundamental math concepts that help children understand the world around them.
Sorting and classifying will provide the kids with the opportunity to develop logical reasoning skill and divergent or independent thinking analysis.
Sorting and classifying involves the kids finding the things that are the same, or alike and grouping them based on certain attributes.
The difference between Classify and Sort. When used as verbs, classify means to identify by or divide into classes, whereas sort means to separate according to certain criteria.
This knowledge also helps children in developing numerical concepts and the ability to group numbers and sets.
The process of sorting involves grouping objects or events according to their similarities (e.g., all the books, all the bags) can be sorted out whereas the process of classifying involves grouping objects or events into pre-determined groups (e.g., when an educator asks students to sort the cutlery by putting all of the forks in one or classifying learners based on their sex or gender . The may also be classified based on their means of transport to school which may be by school bus or by dad”s car or motorcycle or okada
