Universal Active Mathematics
Activities > Teacher Training
NavNirmiti has developed a comprehensive Universal Active Math (UAM)
system and a complete classroom kit to teach all primary level school
mathematics through joyful methods. Our DO AND DISCOVER
method for learning of mathematics is implemented in 106 schools in
Maharashtra, in a classroom situation where teacher-student ratio is
as high as 1 : 40 to 1 : 60.
The program implemented in each school is custom-made considering the
children to be benefited, fee-structure, resources with the school both
material & human, and the requirements of the school. Our training
and material charges are also based on these factors.
We are especially interested in developing long-term relations with
schools, which share our learning objectives.
UAM – Introductory workshop: For primary school
teachers. The workshop covers basic concepts of the primary school curriculum.
It is an introductory workshop to ‘Universal Active Mathematics’.
It gives hands on experience of the activity-based, do & discover
method of teaching and learning. Participants explore creative ways
of math learning with the innovative math kit developed by Navnirmiti.
This is a 2 – 4 day workshop depending upon the range of subjects
and concepts to be covered. Usually this workshop is conducted for trainers
who train other teachers. The workshop covers the topics more intensively
and with deeper conceptual understanding / knowledge about the subject.
However many participants who have attended the Introductory workshop
also register and participate for the sheer joy and fun of learning
math more intensively.
