K’dua set to host Maths Masterclass on Nov. 24

The African Science Academy (ASA), a leading STEM academy for girls, in collaboration with the Ghana Society for Education Technology (GSET) will hold another edition of the Maths Masterclass in Koforidua.

The Maths Masterclass, a professional development training intends to bring together about 40 Senior High School mathematics teachers based in the Eastern Region on the Wednesday, November 24.

The Masterclass programme is a free one-day open space conference designed and dedicated to bringing together Mathematics teachers with the aim of sharing good practices, broadening the knowledge and skills set of the teachers and to develop engaging and practical ways of teaching the subject.

This event also seeks to create a learning community which brings together dynamic and progressive Mathematics educators interested in enhancing the structure of our education system both at the private and on the public level.

Tullow has been funding ASA since 2017 to undertake free professional development programmes for Senior High School Mathematics teachers in Ghana, in an attempt to expand its reach across the country.

Similar to last year, in which two editions were held in Tamale and Kumasi respectively, this would be the maiden edition for the year 2021.

Commenting on the forthcoming MasterClass, the HeadTeacher of ASA, Gifty Ghansah, expressed her gratitude to Tullow for their commitment in enabling these very crucial capacity-building training programmes to continue for Mathematics Educators across the country.

Ms Ghansah said the programme promises to be a fully packed collaborative session with participants engaging in discussions on Gender and Inclusive Cultures in the Mathematics Classroom, Differentiation for All Learners, Assessment for Learning, Effective Mathematics teaching and Learning strategies for teaching topics such as Circle Geometry, Trigonometry and how Technology can be used in the Mathematics classroom to promote engagement and enjoyment of the subject.
