MATHEMATICS WORKSHOP USING 'MATHEMATICS LABORATORY KIT'

The National Curriculum Framework (NCF) lays emphasis on Activity Based Learning and  recommends that Mathematics be integrated in our daily life. With this objective in mind, a  One-day Mathematics Capacity Building Programme was conducted for the teachers of  UKG to Std. II to equip them with a variety of activities in 'Teaching and Learning Mathematics' using 'Mathematics Laboratory Kit'.

The workshop was conducted on 22nd June, 2019 by a team of teachers - Ms. Jaishree Sridhar, Ms. Mini Nandan, Ms. Vidhya. G, Ms. Vasumathi. V and  Ms. Valarmathi.

All the topics in the Mathematics Textbook from UKG to Std. II were covered. Every Concept was handled with the Mathematics Laboratory kit and the participants had a  hands-on-experience with the kit.

All the basic concepts were included during the workshop. The participants were trained to sample the topics of Introduction of Numbers, Ordering of numbers, Concept of Ones, Hundreds and Thousands, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division, Odd and Even numbers, Shapes, Money and Fractions using the Kit.

The participating teachers understood the nuances of handling the Mathematics Laboratory Kit and integrating the activities into real life situations for better conceptualising of Mathematical topics.

It was an enriching learning experience for all the teachers. It enabled them to strengthen their skills and teaching strategies and make learning Mathematics enjoyable. The day long session  proved that 'Learning by Doing' will stimulate interest in children and develop a favourable attitude towards Mathematics.
