Sheree Meyn

Favourite Topic to teach: Number and Algebra

I have always be passionate about Maths.  As a child, I struggled with literacy concepts but found maths made sense.  I remember my teacher Mr Leyland (Byford primary school early 80’s) saying “look for the pattern, when you find the pattern, you will find the answer”.  I still quote him to my students.  I am a special needs teacher working at Nemarluk School.  I have used Matifics in the classroom for 3 years.  My role this year is Maths coordinator and my goal is to find ways to engage students in numeracy.

Nidhi Behl

Favourite Topic to teach: Fractions

I am a grade 5/6 teacher and STEM Leader at my school. I enjoy teaching and I am passionate about interdisciplinary learning. During my Masters, I researched about Flipped Model and I would like to use it effectively in my class. I use Matific to differentiate my maths groups, introduce a new topic, whole class teaching, group work to reinforce, to extend my high achievers and support my lower group. We also use Matific as Maths homework task instead of using worksheets. I also use the class cast feature as an assessment tool.
