Roseau, Dominica – May 12, 2017. Students of primary and secondary schools in the Western District were awarded for their exceptional work during Numeracy Week 2017. Numeracy Week, a signature mathematics program organized by the Ministry of Education annually, was held in April. The week culminated with a competitive exhibition at which students displayed practical and innovative ideas for teaching and learning of mathematics concepts. Student projects were judged based on effective implementation of mathematical concepts as well as for creativity.
The Ministry hopes that the annual activity will help stimulate a liking and appreciation for mathematics among students. Numeracy Week 2017 was held under the theme, Mathematics through Technology, Engineering and Play.
