Mata sa Rang (Maths Recovery) for Primary Schools 2018

Maths Recovery (Ireland) in conjunction with Monaghan Education Centre invites primary schools who are interested in having teachers trained in Mata sa Rang to apply for inclusion in this programme.

The overall aim of this project is to train teachers in the approaches drawn from the Maths Recovery Programme in order to support in-class approaches to numeracy. In 2018, there will be two modules available.

Module 1: The content of this module will be broadly aimed at first class (much of the content is applicable to Infants or second class: Number Words and Numerals; Structuring Number; Early Addition & Subtraction).

Module 2: The content of this module will be broadly aimed at third class (much of the content is applicable to second or fourth class: Conceptual Place Value; Addition & Subtraction to 100 and beyond; Multiplication & Division).

In order to participate in this project schools are requested to commit to the following:

  • Support the teacher to practice instruction/assessments
  • Pay costs of equipment and materials, tutor costs, refreshments and support (€300 per teacher for the full pack[1] or €100 per additional teacher[2]) payable to Monaghan Education Centre on application. It is essential that there is access to adequate materials for participating teachers.

Participating teachers will be expected to:

  • Attend and participate in all training; complete school-based tasks; and complete a reflective journal/brief report.

Training will take place in Monaghan Education Centre early in 2018 and will be over 15 hours, delivered as five 3-hour sessions out of school time.

If you need clarity on any aspect of the proposed project please contact the centre.

Closing date to apply extended to Friday, December 1st 2017. Download Application Form
