EXCELL in teaching mathematics: Teacher's manual - Junior primary phase
EXCELL is an acronym for Experience, Context, Environment, Language and Learning. This programme is based on the premise that a dynamic interrelationship of these five elements is vital for learning to take place. The easy-to-use Workbooks consist of a series of worksheets linked to mathematical topics in the teacher's Manuals and identifies the Specific Outcomes that each worksheet supports. Assistance with Continuous Assessment is provided with questions at the bottom of each worksheet. Resource cards which learners can use for quick reference are also available. The Teacher's Manuals explain the educational theory and methodology of Curriculum 2005 and mathematics education. Teaching guidelines and ideas for activities are provided to help learners develop competency in the main areas of mathematics as well as guidelines and tools for Continuous Assessment.
