Maths Laboratory

(Category: Numeracy)
This initiative will provide schools with the opportunity to investigate the effectiveness of the Maths Laboratory in developing enhanced mathematical and numerical understanding among participating JCSP students. The Maths Laboratory contains a suite of standardised, graded, colour coded and differentiated workcards.The individual needs and existing knowledge and competency levels of the individual student determine and indicate the specific and most appropriate learning route to be taken through the laboratory assignments. Parker(2000) states that the Maths Laboratory provides schools with a 'flexible and systematic programme that can be easily implemented to fit into a variety of school calendars and schedules'
