The approach of teaching mathematics across the curriculum is not perceived as easy to teach by most teachers and many may feel that they need more support to teach mathematics than other subjects do, perhaps because they themselves did not like mathematics at school. It is a challenge for all teachers of the teamwork and they all have a responsibility for promoting numeracy.
Mathematics is the common language of many other disciplines, students should learn this language to understand the concepts used in those disciplines and they should connect their mathematical learning to appropriate real-world contexts. Integrating Mathematics with other disciplines helps to make Mathematics meaningful because Mathematics skills are enhanced and consolidated when students have opportunities to apply and develop them across the curriculum.
The purpose of the webinar is to introduce teachers to learning experiences that enhance their students’ mathematical thinking and skills.
After the webinar, teachers are expected to start using more integrated learning experiences along with other kinds of classical ones.
