AMESA WORKSHOPS & AGM
DATE: Thursday 17 October 2002
Foundation Phase: Data handling in Grades R – 3
The intention is to show how a foundation phase teacher initiates and then teaches this important component of the mathematics curriculum. A variety of activities and suggestions of how to assess these will be given.
Intermediate Phase: Data handling and probability in Grades 4,5 & 6 and how to use computers to assist you in teaching it.
Tim Dunne, Mathematics Department, UCT
Audience interactive and participatory. Learn by doing. Come and share with us some of the excitement and challenge in this "new" area of the intermediate curriculum. Numbers are limited by the number of PCs – 20, with two people per pc. Basic computer literacy required.
Senior Phase: Functions: An Introduction Through Modelling
One of the important aspects of solving a problem is having a good understanding of the relationships between the variables in the problem. In this session you will examine a few real world problems. You will find mathematical models to describe the relationships between the variables in them. We will also discuss why functions are important tools in solving problems and how they are used to make predictions.
FET Phase: The Introduction of Probability into the Classroom
This one hour presentation will give an introduction to the syllabus for Statistics for Grades 10-12 and a look at introducing probability in the FET phase. It should be fun and exciting, and will whet your appetite to teach Statistics in the GET phase!
Note that all presentations will be in English. Please RSVP to 6893141 or firstname.lastname@example.org , leaving your contact details and which session you would like to attend.
