“Math Cookies for Everyone!” is a seminar-workshop on Singapore Math. Teaching homeschool parents, teachers and non homeschooling families on the fundamentals of non traditional math. According to Wiki, Singapore math is a teaching method based on the national mathematics curriculum used for kindergarten through sixth grade in Singapore. The term was originally coined in the U.S. to describe an approach, originally developed in Singapore, to teaching students to learn and master fewer mathematical concepts at greater detail as well as having them learn these concepts using a three-step learning process.The three steps are: concrete, pictorial, and abstract. In the concrete step, students engage in hands-on learning experiences using concrete objects such as chips, dice, or paper clips.This is followed by drawing pictorial representations of mathematical concepts. Students then solve mathematical problems in an abstract way by using numbers and symbols.
The workshop will teach the fundamentals including introduction to Singapore Math: its success in the global arena, the CPA method, the bar model and an exploration activity to be able to experience first-hand on how an assigned topic may be discussed to the children.
This workshop will be facilitated by none other than Mrs. Ivy Liezl Henson-Vinluan , a Cum Laude Graduate from Philippine Normal University Manila who took a double-degree course in Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Bachelor of Secondary Education Major in Mathematics. She is about to finish her Masters of Arts in Mathematics Education in the University of the Philippines Diliman. This math enthusiast, who is usually called by her students as a cool and cheerful teacher, has been teaching math for more than a decade already. She had undergone various local and international trainings in the field of teaching mathematics. She had facilitated a couple of seminar-workshops on this topic as well. She humbly wishes to share with the seminar-workshop participants her personal belief and experiences why and how Singapore Math should be given consideration and applied in the classroom. For her, her greatest achievement as a teacher is when she hears her students say “I love math!”
