Teaching Fractions – a course for Intermediate Phase teachers of Mathematics.
South African learners continue to perform poorly in Mathematics in both national and international assessments. The most recent TIMSS report (2015) shows that whilst there are small improvements, South Africa still ranks at only 38 out of 39 countries.
In order to provide practical support for teachers, NAPTOSA has included several courses on the teaching of Mathematics. A topic that is regularly identified as being poorly taught in the Intermediate Phase is FRACTIONS. Prabash Gordon will be offering very practical guidelines on how to teach fractions in her workshops on Wednesday, 22 February; Wednesday 1 March and Wednesday 8 March.

Professional Development Workshops
Term 4 of 2016 saw 250 teachers attend various courses despite campus disruptions, and the first 3 terms of 2016 saw between 600 and 700 teachers per term support the NAPTOSA term programmes. We applaud the commitment and dedication of the teachers who attend these courses after a tiring day of teaching so that they can better serve the learners in their care.
The Term 1 (2017) Programme runs from 23 January to 9 March 2017
