Literacy is the basic foundation of almost all learning in school. If you are unable to read or write then how are you able to become an independant learner as you will have to rely on others to assist you. Our numeracy initiative takes on the same vision. How are students to become competent in math when they cannot compute basic math facts or operations? We use Teacher Assisted Instruction (TAI) that was developed by Linda Eberhart in the USA. TAI is an individualized math computation program that differentiates math instruction to meet each student’s needs. A series of over 40 booklets provides practice for each computation skill - ranging from basic addition to decimals and percents. Students work at their own pace as the teacher gives immediate feedback on a students progress giving intervention if errors are being made or the go ahead to move onto the next booklet. This program is typically done for 15 minutes a day.
