Mathematics Workshop by Mrs Vidhya Chendhil


Mrs Vidhya Chendhil did a Maths workshop with our teachers.

It was a great learning experience and our heartfelt thanks to Mrs Vidhya for taking the time to be with our teachers!

 How do we mathematics in ABL (Activity Based Learning ) System? What are step by step approaches to teach counting in Kindergarten? How do we use modern Learning tools in Math Lab Class? How does one use group activity as a teaching technique? How does one use local (inexpensive) things around as learning tools?

These were some questions our teachers learnt hands on with Ms. Vidhya, an eminent educationist who took her time off to train our teachers of Math Department. We shared some of innovative teaching strategies too! It was really a time to share as fellow teachers. She was very impressed by the way our Math teachers teach addition and subtraction of integers by bottle caps and Class VII students shared their latest math project on Rain harvesting as a example to HOLISTIC Learning using Mathematics with elements of Chemistry, Physics and Business Studies. She was very organized in teaching strategies and concentrated well on basics of Math teaching. On the whole it was real sharing of ideas and would go a long way in learning and teaching processes of Math as a whole.

As a follow up to this program we are now to install some more models and learning tools in the Math Lab.
