ACTION PLAN JICA – CRICED Tsukuba University Cecilia Beatriz CASTRO LAZARTE March 5th, 2010 PROBLEM TREE Students don't use basic mathematics properly Bad teaching training structure for Mathematics at schools in Cochabamba. Students don't like mathematics Pre-service teacher training Program doesn't have enough methodological contents In - service teachers at CEIVO school use always the same lesson plan Teachers don't enjoy teaching maths. Lesson Study is not included in the contents of Science Didactics Teachers don't have a structure to review the lesson. Teachers don't use concrete materials in Math classes other than to count. OBJECTIVE TREE Students can use basic mathematics properly Improve teaching training structure for Mathematics at schools in Cochabamba. Students enjoy mathematics Increase pre-service teacher training Program methodological contents In - service teachers at CEIVO school will make their own lesson plan Teachers enjoy teaching maths. Include Lesson Study is in the contents of Science Didactics Implement "Lesson Study at this School" Teachers use Hands on Math to teach "base 10 system" for example. Improve Plan LESSON STUDY see Improve Reflect do Posing Problem - We have 12 cakes. - We have eaten 5. - Later, mom gave us 3 more cakes. - How many cakes do we have now?
