Increasing the efficiency of teaching mathematics

Elaborating an application for financing an educational project from the European Social Fund during the new 2014‑2020 programming period

The workshops are designed for mathematics teachers from upper secondary schools. The objective of the training is to present the possibility of using the Educational Value Added (EVA) method for the assessment of efficiency of teaching mathematics within the scope required for the final examination and to discuss the methods of teaching mathematics with regard to the skills specified in the core curriculum.

The following issues will be discussed during the training:

  • Teaching strategies in the light of general requirements regarding the training of mathematical skills.
  • Modelling as the basic mathematical skill. Elaboration of problems in mathematical modeling and solving strategies.
  • EWD 100 Calculator as a tool for measuring the efficiency of teaching mathematics at upper secondary schools.

The final element of the training will be the presentation of the scope of the application and the next steps relative to the process of elaboration and submission of applications for funding. Individual consultations will be provided and are included in the price of the training.
