A Focus on Math Education
NATIONAL MATHEMATICS CONGRESS
Skilled teachers are one of the most critical success factors for effective education, while a focus on teacher development assures a bigger outreach and impact. Hence, LHUPL supports the Annual Mathematics Congress which targets the development and upgrade of mathematics and teaching skills of teachers across Namibia. One average, 275 mathematics educators, including primary and secondary school classroom teachers, advisory teachers, university lecturers as well as officials from the local Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture benefit from the event on an annual basis.
MATHEMATICS SUPPORT AND ENRICHMENT PROGRAMME
This Programme was initiated by LHUPL six years ago and supports gifted learners in reaching their full academic potential. Through curriculum-based after school classes provided throughout the year, it benefits senior secondary learners enrolled for higher level or extended level mathematics. Other activities include mathematics spring schools, regional mathematics competitions and teacher mathematics workshops. On average, the programme benefits 200 learners on an annual basis. LHUPL also monitors individual learner performance improvements for this Programme.
