Education cell, DSGMC  Under the Chairmanship of S. Harmeet Singh Kalka organized a workshop on “IMPLEMENTATION OF SINGAPORE’S ELEMENTARY MATHS PEDAGOGY IN CBSE AND ICSE CURRICULUM” by Dr. Kevin Mahoney, first American to earn a doctorate focused on the study of Singapore’s Elementary math curriculum. The workshop was organized in collaboration with E3 Edusolutions WOW Maths at GHPS Punjabi Bagh on 3rdSeptember’2016 and was attended by teachers of all branches of GHPS and other private schools across Delhi.

It was a very informative and enriching experience. Around 100+ teachers attended the workshop and reported it to be very interesting and interactive. The innovative ideas and tools were introduced by the International Resource Person – Dr. Kevin Mahoney on the concept of   “learn by doing” and understanding the reason and justification of making students understand the various concept of Maths.

S. Harmeet Singh Kalka, Chairman School Education seeing to the increasing Phobia of Mathematics in children decided to upgrade and motivate teachers to use playway method to teach Mathematics as he realized that each child’s way of learning is so diverse that a standard style of teaching followed by teachers using text books doesn’t suffice. 

The Workshop highlighted this gap in teaching-learning process by adopting experiential learning in everyday classroom practice using Singapore Math Pedagogy. Further emphasizing  the specification mentioned by NCERT,  the teachers were trained regarding Modeling situations using quantities, shapes and forms as the best use of Mathematics with due reasoning and proofs that can help in reducing the Maths phobia from the children’s mind.

All teachers were given skilful training activities to understand Maths concept using various problem solving techniques. Teachers were also awarded with certificates after the session.

Dr. Maninder Kaur Dean attached to Education Cell thanked Col Jasbir Singh Nirmal, Director School Education and Ms. TPK Gujral, Principal, GHPS, Punjabi Bagh for giving such a platform for organizing this workshop and look forward to such interactions in future as well. She also highlighted that such an endeavor is to make classroom teaching more meaningful and holistic.
