PETS in partnership with volunteer teachers from schools in Barrydale, has created a unique short course tailored for local conditions. The course aims to improve the teachers’ cognitive understanding of fractions and equip them to teach this vital topic more effectively.

The course material has been specifically designed for teachers in Barrydale and similar small rural communities in the Little Karoo. Please feel free to share the practical suggestions for use in your classroom with your colleagues. 

We look forward to your comments when you have completed the course.
