Better approaches needed to teach the mathematics subject

first_imgLocalNews Better approaches needed to teach the mathematics subject by: – October 3, 2011 Sharing is caring! Hon. Petter St. Jean. (file photo)The Minister of Education and Human Resource Development has called on educators to adopt new strategies that will assist them in successfully teaching the mathematics subject.The Minister made the appeal during his address at the first annual general meeting of the Dominica Association of Mathematics Educators (DAME) on Friday morning.The Annual General Meeting was held under the theme; ‘strength in numbers’.“Today we need to appreciate that whatever we do as a nation hinges upon how well-rounded we are and that student performance in every walk of life rests on how he can function properly mathematically. There is a need for a well-structured, well-organized core of people that can address the critical needs as it relates to students development.”The Ministry of Education is reporting that over the years, a large percentage of students on the island and the region, by extension; continue to show signs of dislike for the subject.Senior Education Officer, Mr Nicholas Goldberg believes that teachers must now look for new strategies to teach the subject to receive a successful response from their students.“As we have said mathematics is a subject that a lot of children dislike for one reason or another. When we did a survey a number of years ago we found out initially in grades four and five children liked mathematics but by the time they reach secondary school they dislike the subject. The teachers need to focus now on how to teach mathematics so as to get the children to perform. And one of the key things is motivation. There are two types of motivation: the intrinsic type and the extrinsic type.”President of DAME, Mr Christopher Charles pledged the association’s commitment to working with the Teacher’s Association and the Ministry of Education to assist mathematics teachers in developing the necessary skills to teach the subject.“One just need to take a look at the prerequisite to enter many of the top programs at the State College or listen to a few job advertisements. Then we need to ask ourselves what is going to happen to the rest of the sixty percent who fail. This shows that the problem does not reside at the secondary schools but rather through our education system. This is why we; mathematics educators must stand in unity, pull our resources and show our strength.”DAME has developed a constitution which all members will be adopting, enshrined in a booklet which was presented to the Minister of Education.At Friday’s ceremony, the Convent High School was awarded for being the most outstanding school in CSEC from 2006 to 2011.The North East Comprehensive School was also awarded for using their initiative and innovation in celebrating the achievement of students and teachers while the Dominica Community High School was awarded for registering the highest percentage of students for CSEC in the past five years.

Wenger targeting title race

first_imgArsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes the frantic Christmas schedule can expand the Barclays Premier League title charge beyond a two-horse race. “The fact that we got so many important injuries at the back has cost us too much.” Wenger would like to see the Premier League’s traditional festive schedule preserved, but has called for the introduction of the type of winter break seen in Germany. “Maybe it would be good for the English national team to have a break in January. Respect the English tradition and give a winter break in January,” he said. “If you look at the history, is it a coincidence that the German national team has always done well in the big tournaments when England hasn’t done so well? “It is just Germany who has the longest winter break in Europe, among the big countries. “And by coincidence, they always do well in tournaments because they have refreshed players.” “It can still change. Let’s see how the schedule goes over Christmas. We’ll have a much better idea at the beginning of January,” Wenger said. “The next three or four games are important. Chelsea will be in the fight for the title, for sure, but will it only be Chelsea and Man City? “Today you can say maybe, but it is still a long way off. Chelsea are in the Champions League, Man City as well. “Then you have the FA Cup and Chelsea play in the League Cup. There is still a long way to go. “But what is for sure is that the teams like us and those around us need to be massively consistent to have a chance of coming back.” Arsenal topped the table on January 1 of this year only to finish the season fourth, seven points adrift of City. Wenger denies his team have regressed, however. “I don’t think we have gone backwards in the quality of our squad because if you look at the five players that we bought, you cannot say that one of the five is a failure,” Wenger said. “I can’t deny we are behind much more than last year, but we have had a depleted squad since the start of the season and no stability. The Gunners trail leaders Chelsea by 15 points and while it appears to be a straight shootout between Jose Mourinho’s side and reigning champions Manchester City, Wenger insists the landscape can change over the next week. Three games in seven days has convinced Wenger that if Arsenal and those trailing the pacesetters can stitch together a series of results, a new contender could emerge.

USG committee discusses diversity fund amendment

first_imgSenator Michaela Murphy (center) is the co-chair of the diversity fund committee. Murphy explained that there is no precedent for senate vetoes in other USG funds. (Krystal Gallegos | Daily Trojan)The Undergraduate Student Government held a committee meeting Tuesday to discuss a potential amendment to a $50,000 diversity fund. The fund, which was created to provide funding for events that would promote diversity on campus, has undergone a process to create an amendment that would make it more accessible to cultural assemblies at USC. The first topic of discussion Tuesday concerned whether the senate should have the ability to veto a fund request that has already been granted. Senator Michaela Murphy, the co-chair of the diversity fund committee, explained that there is no precedent for USG senate vetoes in other USG funds.“I don’t think it’s fair to make it seem like we don’t trust the discretion of the people who would be sitting on this oversight board when we haven’t given senate this discretion on any other fund in the past,” Murphy said. Senator Meagan Lane said that in light of the Ben Shapiro event last week, there should be more checks to how certain events receive funding when they could potentially present harm to students.However, she explained that the diversity fund would not endorse any kind of event that would risk people’s safety and well-being. She said that any complaints against the use of the diversity fund would come from outside of the senate, not from anyone within USG. Speaker Pro Tempore Matthew Crane said he was concerned that denying funding to certain groups could lead to lawsuits from certain organizations. However, several cultural assembly representatives said that they have never witnessed such lawsuits at USC.Co-chief Diversity Director Shaghayegh Ebadi said that because of the makeup of the fund’s oversight board — which includes the USG treasurer, the chief diversity officers and a representative from each cultural assembly — it would be unlikely for the diversity fund to pay for anything that would harm students. “You have the most qualified, the most impacted communities that should know what’s good for them [and] should know what’s going to be of value to that community,” Ebadi said.Murphy echoed this sentiment, saying that the oversight board is not at risk of funding anything problematic.“The clear and most present and most explicit and most important stakeholders for conversations like these, for funding applications for different marginalized communities are not only present at the very beginning, but they are empowered at the very beginning,” Murphy said. “A senate veto is paternalistic … I don’t think that it’s important.”The second part of the meeting delved into whether or not the language of the amendment should set $50,000 as a floor for the fund.“Do we [as USG] want to get roped into funding things that admin should be paying for themselves, but now have an excuse not to fund them?” Murphy said. Murphy said that if USG puts its own money toward promoting diversity, the administration will follow their lead. She said that because the administration is not funding certain diversity-based initiatives already, it is up to USG to start a trend with the hope that the administration will follow suit.“If we use the belief system that … where we put our money is a reflection of our values, then that is a very strong statement to make to the USC administration to say that what we value is diversity-based initiatives,” Murphy said.last_img read more
