A well-established practice being used in many Maths Centre projects to change the physical environment of teaching, learning and assessment in many schools, to share resources amongst all teachers in a school and inviting other schools in the vicinity.
Hubs are rooms/ spaces within the school made available to be set up as dynamic environments for teaching and learning of Mathematics, Science, technology, accounting and ICT based learning.
Maths Centre trainers and teachers plan the hubs together. Community, local industry and parents’ involvement is crucial. Local supermarkets donate furniture, paints, paper etc. to create a highly effective learning environment in one classroom. It is a resource room to be owned by the whole school, teachers, parents who will sustain and maintain both the environment and the resources. Parents can borrow some resources for free to use at home with the learners. It is a very strong sustainability mechanism. 1-2 newsletters per year are distributed to all role players. Articles are also written for the donor magazines.
