Most people, children or adults, usually dread mathematics. Why does this happen? We believe that the problem is due to the way mathematics is usually taught from early school on. In this awareness level practical-oriented programme we look at ways in which we can teach mathematics to children in a way that will make them feel positive about it.
This programme consists of two courses of 8 credits each. Both the courses are built around detailed examples of way of communicating mathematical concepts/processes/skills to children upto the age of 10. Thus, the programme is aimed at pre-primary and primary school teachers, as well as parents of young children.
The programme also requires the learner to undertake a project worth 2 credits.
