Teaching/Learning approach:

The training course aims to introduce a unique maths programmes and approaches used in the UK schools, including Oxford developed methods.

This approach recognises the importance of maths in our daily lives and helps our children to learn the skills of numeracy, geometry and measure that can be used in everyday life, to develop problem-solving and reasoning skills that are so vital in day-to-day life and to develop thinking skills.

The participants will increase their knowledge of the UK educational system with special focus on structured and coherent mathematics curriculum for the whole school.
