RIEP presents mathematics training programme for education students
2007-10-30

 

The Research Institute for Education Planning (RIEP) at the University of the Free State (UFS) recently trained 19 Foundation Phase students from the UFS School of Education in the Family Math programme. Family Math is a programme in which teachers, children (preschool up to Grade 9) and their parents are exposed to the basic principles of mathematics. The aim of the training is to develop literacy levels in mathematics by using fun activities, concrete resources and generally available and less expensive material found in and around the house. Over and above the contact sessions, each student had to arrange two community workshops in order to qualify as a Family Math facilitator. The students' training was made possible by a sponsorship from Old Mutual. During the certificate ceremony were, from the left: Franzel Steyn (student), Mr Johann Faber (representative from Old Mutual), me. Elizna Prinsloo (RIEP), Prof. Jack van der Linde (Director of RIEP), Lorraine Botha (RIEP), and Olga de Ascensao (student).
