Pact about the development of higher level thinking skills on Geometry within the teachers of Mathematics and the students

geoThe Mathematics Branch of the Ministry of Education has made arrangements to create a pact about Geometry which gives an upper level thinking ability in order to improve the education of the teachers of Mathematics and the students who learn the subject.

The Geometry included in the subject of Mathematics is helpful to develop the higher level thinking abilities such as logical thinking, scientific vision and problem solving skills within the students. But according to the evaluation reports prepared by the Department of Examinations it has been identified that during the last few years, selection of questions related to Geometry for answering by the students in the Mathematics paper at the G.C.E. (O/L) examination has been low and also the answers given by the students were not up to the expected level.

Meanwhile The Minister of Education Akila Viraj Kariyawasam has instructed the relevant officers to take necessary actions to improve the teaching and learning process through evaluation of subjects on a scientific basis.

Accordingly, in this pact it is expected to identify the past, present and future tendencies of the Geometry and the ideas and proposals raised there to be directed to the Academic Committee of the Mathematics Education of the Ministry of Education and to use them for the development of Mathematics education.

It is scheduled to conduct this pact from 9.00am to 4.30pm on Wednesday 14th of May with the headship of the Secretary of Education at the Sri Lanka Foundation Institute that is organized by the Mathematics Branch of the Ministry of Education in collaboration with the J.E. Jayasooriya Foundation to mark the hundredth birth anniversary of Mr. J.E. Jayasooriya who rendered a yeoman service to the Mathematics education in this country.
