Cobar High School recently hosted the Virtual Maths Faculty, a gathering of mathematics teachers from schools encompassing the central western region.
The 21 educators, with experience ranging from less than a year teaching to several decades in the industry, sat down and discussed all things mathematical.
Virtual Maths Faculty western area co-coordinator Brock Ford said the majority of the two-day conference was spent with the teachers trying to better themselves as educators of nathematics.
“Teaching numeracy to teenagers has, and always will be, a challenge and events such as this are of vital importance, as they give us fresh insight into education strategies and resources.
“We received presentations on the Numeracy Continuum, video game development and engaging tasks, among others, and all attendees left with renewed spirits,” Mr Ford reported in the school’s newsletter.
“It was a pleasure playing host to such an array of teachers and we all learnt a great deal.
“We will use the skills we have gained to create more engaging mathematics lessons and with a little hope, instil upon our students the importance and indeed magnificence of mathematics.”
