INTRODUCTION

Mathematics education over the world is going through a great change. Curriculum planners all over the world are recommending radical reforms in math education to prepare all students to meet mathematical needs of the society. Concept of teaching, which was assumed to be processes of direct transmission of knowledge, is changing. Teaching is being viewed as a process of facilitating students’ learning by creating a learning environment conducive to inquiry. This necessitates the teachers to upgrade and reorient themselves by:

·         Strengthening one’s knowledge of mathematics.

·         Learning to use effective teaching strategies.

·         Becoming familiar with exemplary instruction material and resources.

·         Learning effective use of technology in teaching and learning.

 

 

 

PROGRAM GOALS

The programme is conceived with two main goals:  

·         Strengthening conceptual

understanding of  mathematical concepts: There will be lectures by subject experts on various mathematical topics taught at secondary and senior secondary level. Some lectures on special mathematical topics, normally not covered in the curriculum, are also planned.  

·         Technology orientation and training: The second component will have intensive hands-on training on the use of technology to facilitate the processes of mathematics teaching and learning.

 

 

SCHEDULE AND TOPICS

The daily program will have two sessions. The pre-lunch session will

 

 

have three one hour lectures devoted to conceptual strengthening of various

topics  covered in secondary and sr. secondary level. Lectures are planned on the following topics:

·         Calculus

·         Geometry

Afternoon sessions (two each of 2 hours) will be devoted to intensive hands on training on the following:

 

·         Geometer Sketchpad in teaching.

·         Use of Autograph.

·         Use of Calculators

Secondary and senior secondary level teachers from schools / international schools (affiliated with CBSC, ICSE, ICSGC, IB and State Boards).
