Fantastic Fractions Fundamentals
Adele Piccolo and Belinda Kither have more than 50 years of teaching experience between them. Both have taught across the Foundation, Intermediate and Senior Phase, and have taught a number of subjects including Mathematics. Adele has also worked as a trainer upskilling teachers, subject advisors and coaches, as well as, writing material for Grades 4-7 Maths teachers. Belinda was trained in Australia, and brings a wealth of knowledge and pedagogical skills. Being passionate about teaching Maths both have taught different types of mathematic curricula and draw from the best of these methodologies, focusing on improving the mathematical skills of children who find the subject difficult. Over the years they have developed and fine-tuned material which helps to develop understanding of concepts from the concrete to the more abstract.
Webinar is open for SAALED members and non-members . The cost to attend the webinar is R100.00 for members and R150.00 for non members.
This workshop will focus on the types of manipulatives, anchor charts and concrete tasks teachers can use in the Intersen Phase to develop children’s understanding of the concepts needed to negotiate fractions. The activities will be hands on and we shall develop materials that teachers can take away with them to use in their classrooms. We shall touch on what is needed for each grade and we can then see the progression and scaffolding that is needed for teaching fractions successfully.
