MAV remote learning support

Home Learning Tasks

During COVID-19 disruptions, MAV produced weekly home learning guides. The aim of these guides was to assist teachers who were supporting families with mathematics home learning. There are three learning levels F – 2, 3 – 6 and 7 – 9 and each contained 5 tasks that have been developed for two content areas. In additional an app of the week had been suggested.

Largely, tasks had been developed to rely on minimal materials. Playing cards, dice and access to a computer had been interwoven for various tasks. The tasks are a mix of open-ended, rich tasks, challenging tasks and small investigations.
