Mathematics is one of the most difficult subjects to teach. It is a subject that is extremely dependent on previous knowledge and requires a rigorous understanding of the material (past, present and future course material) on the teacher’s part, as well as thorough consideration of each student’s prior knowledge. It requires an ability to break down each concept into its various components and then to design effective teaching strategies to help students learn, understand and retain this knowledge.
PDec provides teachers at all levels of experience with:
- A deep understanding of the course material
- Development of effective lesson plans
- Understanding appropriate teaching strategies
Successful mathematics education relies on:
- Effective Learning
- Sound Curriculum
Through individual teacher mentoring (see above), specialized mathematics workshops and curriculum design, PDec can help create more effective mathematics education. PDec helps schools effectively implement the Quebec Education Program (and others as requested) in classrooms across the province.
