Courses I have taught/am teaching/will teach:
IN-SERVICE COURSE FOR TEACHERS / ENRICHMENT COURSES FOR PUPILS
a. These are short courses to prepare inservice teachers to handle their teaching requirements. These include prepare them additional content
“top-up” to face the challenges of the changing mathematics curriculum.
b. The enrichment courses for Secondary School pupils include preparing the higher achieving pupils to handle higher order thinking (HOT) problems, e.g. Mathematical Olympiad problems. Activitity-based learning of Mathematics include allowing pupils to “play” and explore mathematics by giving them more time for hands-on and exploring at their own time own target.
The courses are described below.
1) Enrichment for Primary and Secondary School Pupils
a) Problem Solving Heuristics (Maths Olympiad Training)
b) Activity-based Learning of Mathematics
2) NIE – MOE Workshop for Teachers
