MAV is pleased to offer members a very special offer: 10% off the price of the seminar:
'Direct Instruction at Work: Math Mastery Series Seminar'.
Based on meticulously scripted lessons the Farkota Direct Instruction model strikes a balance between teacher-directed and student-directed learning. Recognising that some skills are better acquired through one approach and some through the other, the Math Mastery Series maximises every benefit a mental math program is capable of yielding.
Dr Rhonda Farkota, a Senior Research Fellow at the Australian Council for Educational Research, will give a practical overview of the Math Mastery Series programs Junior Elementary Math Mastery, Junior Elementary Math Mastery+, and Elementary Math Mastery.
Attendees will learn how these programs help all students, but particularly those who:
Have not reached required numeracy level for their age
Have low motivation to learn, or low self-efficacy
Are classified as at-risk learners
Have difficulty concentrating, and would benefit from repeated structured teaching and practice.
Dr Farkota will also address self-efficacy, and the pivotal role it plays in both teaching and learning. An opportunity for questions and general discussion will follow.
