Description:

 

In our one-hour professional development session, we delve into the art of making mathematics tangible and relevant. We explore strategies to bridge the gap between abstract concepts and real-world applications, engaging students in meaningful learning experiences. From incorporating everyday scenarios to utilising technology and manipulatives, we empower educators with tools to make mathematics come alive in the classroom. Through collaborative discussions and hands-on activities, participants discover innovative approaches to foster deeper understanding and appreciation for math. By the session's end, teachers leave equipped with practical techniques to ignite curiosity, promote critical thinking, and inspire a lifelong love for mathematics in their students.

 

Please note that this session will be recorded and sent out after the session to all registered participants.
