|A Teacher practices the Finger Multiplication in Cape Town|
A Teachers Training Workshop was held in South Africa recently.
It was conducted by Mrs.Neshni Naidoo, Director, Vedic Maths Forum South Africa at the West Riding Primary School and it was attended by almost a score of Maths Teachers.
Some feedback from the sessions:
- Thank you for
allowing the educators to really be actively involved during the sessions – the
educators were able to discuss along; explain and show their understanding and
- Interesting methods that we can definitely
implement: learning the 9x table using our fingers;
The presenter was
very helpful and willing to assist.Feedback
from Mr. Anthony Mitchell (Grade 7 Educator)I
found the Vedic sessions to be useful. I think their approach to Maths is very
interesting, something I would like to pursue further. The presenter had a
passion she wanted to share.From
a Grade 7 perspective, it would be very interesting and valuable to look at
more examples specifically relevant to the grade/phase. This said many of the
topics she discussed had universal value.Personally,
I find working with numbers fascinating and inspiring. I am always keen to
learn more and get as many points of view as I can.
