The Pedagogy of Mathematics in South Africa
Is There A Unifying Logic?eBook - 2018
This book offers an overview of the research into the reasons behind South Arica's poor performance in mathematics and offers an overview of that research, reasserting some of the findings of previous studies, such as the fact that today's mathematics teaching and performance reflects the impact of its colonial and apartheid past. Key issues to emerge are the importance teaching math in a way that links to learners' concrete social environment and the necessity for joint efforts on the part of government, teachers' unions and private partners. In addition, the book argues for the importance of teachers developing a deeper understanding of math and of creating learners with productive math identities capable of making sense of the subject in South Africa's 11 diverse official languages.
