Mathematical modelling teacher day

29 July 2017

The International Community of Teachers of Mathematical Modelling and Applications (ICTMA) invites all Intermediate and Senior Phase teachers to participate in the first South African Mathematical Modelling Teacher Day. The Teacher Day will take place on the day after the 18th International Conference on Mathematical Modelling and Applications (ICTMA18) and will provide teachers with productive ideas for incorporating mathematical modelling into their classroom teaching. Four renowned colleagues from a group of international experts in Mathematical Modelling will act as facilitators. We believe it will be a rewarding experience for you.

  • Location: The SANLAM Training Centre Corporate Office, 2 Strand Rd, Bellville, Cape Town.
  • Date: Saturday, 29th July 2017 from 08:30-16:00.
