Mini-PD January 15, 2019
Peter Andres and Jayesh Maniar hosted a fantastic evening looking at mathematics through an EAL lens. We explored the new draft Provincial LAL Numeracy Courses that will offer newcomer students with refugee backgrounds the opportunity to develop essential knowledge and numeracy skills to transition easily into mainstream mathematics classes. Participants learned how to use manipulatives such as cuisenaire rods, pattern blocks, and two-sided coloured counters to enhance understanding of mathematics concepts.
