Curtin’s Professional Learning Hub invites teachers who are new to lower secondary mathematics to a one-day workshop.
If you’re new to teaching maths, this workshop will explore topics within the mathematics curriculum and experiment with inquiry-style teaching, hands-on activities and software.
- Friday 17 November 2017
- 9am - 3pm
- Building 501, Curtin University Kent Street, Bentley
- Standard: $300. Current Curtin staff/students: $150. Includes lunch and any materials needed for the workshop.
In a high school? Not originally trained as a maths teacher? Has your principal asked you to teach a maths class next year? This will put your mind at ease.
By the end of this session you will gain:
- A sound idea of what the mathematical curriculum contains.
- Broad knowledge of useful teaching resources.
- Greater confidence about how you will teach and assess mathematics.
You will receive a signed certificate that can be used as evidence of your professional learning.
