Further Education and Training (FET) Mathematics Certificate Course (University of South Africa ...

Further Education and Training (FET) Mathematics Certificate Course (University of South Africa (UNISA), Pretoria, South Africa) Adapted by Ronel Paulsen UNISA offers certificate courses for maths teachers wishing to improve their knowledge for the teaching of maths in specific areas. Ronel Paulsen adapted the full ACEMaths module for the purposes of an FET (Grades 10,11 and 12) certificate course. This adaptation was versioned to include maths examples and activities appropriate to the FET Mathematics teacher in the place of some of the original activities which were more geared to primary school teachers. There is also one full new unit (Unit 3) which presents FET mathematics content and four additional readings appropriate for FET teachers. One of the original ACEMaths units (Unit 6) was omitted from this adaptation.

In April 2006, the World Health Organization (WHO) released new international growth charts for children aged 0--59 months. Similar to the 2000 CDC growth charts, these charts describe weight for age, length (or stature) for age, weight for length (or stature), and body mass index for age. Whereas the WHO charts are growth standards, describing the growth of healthy children in optimal conditions, the CDC charts are a growth reference, describing how certain children grew in a particular place and time. However, in practice, clinicians use growth charts as standards rather than references.

Urban Ecosystems 1: Cities Are Urban Ecosystems
Conditions of Use:

Rating

The purpose of this lesson is to understand that cities are urban ecosystems which include both nature and humans, in a largely human-built environmental context and that urban ecosystems have emergent properties that cannot easily be seen by simply looking at the different functional parts of a city: The whole is more than the sum of the parts.

Urban Ecosystems 1 introduces some of the principles of ecology, including the definition of an ecosystem as a community of living organisms interacting with its non-living environment. Students will be introduced to the study of ecosystems and models that are used by urban ecologists. The class will be invited to visit websites to see where the cities are on the planet, and they will have a chance to try some hands-on urban nature education activities.

This lesson was developed by Dr. Penny Firth, a scientist, as part of a set of interdisciplinary Science NetLinks lessons aimed at improved understanding of environmental phenomena and events. This is the first of a strand of five lessons.

Primary grade students need extensive experience with graphic organizers and math manipulatives, but it can be difficult to provide this practice in ways that are engaging and interactive. Kidspiration software helps to meet this need with graphic organizer activities and math manipulative activities in a colorful, easy to navigate interface with extensive audio. In addition, Kidspiration can provide a creative outlet for students’ self-expression. This software can be used to teach and reinforce content across the subject areas, and it is also well-suited to interdisciplinary projects. When integrating it in a kindergarten or first-grade classroom, Kidspiration does require a significant investment of teacher time for planning and scaffolding.
