Interactive and Lively Math Workshop

Sept 6, 2008

OUM Perak once again rise to the occasion to organize yet another workshop for the benefits of its students. The Mathematics workshop held from 12 noon till 4.30pm was attended by 25 students and 3 tutors; Puan Siti, Mr. Lam and Mr. Vincent. The workshop was a success taking into consideration the very short notice issued to students. Student from as far as Bagan Serai turned up for the workshop. This is the second time OUM Perak is conducting such workshop. The last workshop was held last year witnessed by Prof. Dr. Abtar Kaur.

The workshop was facilitated by Richard Ng, Director of OUM Perak, who also acts as a tutor for Management Math subjects for undergraduate students. The workshop is part of a research fully funded by Open University Malaysia to assist students in increasing their readiness as well as to improve on their performance.

The workshop was divided into three sections where participants are taught on how to handle problems related to numbers and algebra. The participants were also shown hands-on on how to use the Equation Editor Software to type mathematical symbols useful for them to post questions or answer questions posted in the online forum.
