This study explored language practices of trilingual undergraduate students of mathematics as they made sense of an algebraic task. Specifically, the study set out to explore whether, how and why trilingual undergraduate ...
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of using Lakatos’ heuristic
method to teach the surface area of the cone (SAC) on students’ learning. The Lakatos
(1976) heuristic framework and the Oh (2010) model of ...
The aversion to the study of mathematics and the resultant poor performance by students generally cannot be overemphasized and this still poses a great threat to the needed skills in the science, technology and commerce ...
The aim of this study was to identify types of behaviour manifested by learners during mathematics instruction, and the impact that this behaviour might have on the mathematics performance of learners. The study was conducted ...
The study intends to investigate the nature and cognitive demands of contextual word-problems posed in the FET mathematics examinations of IEB and NSC. The analysis of the mathematization of real-life situations to form ...
The study constituted an investigation for concept images and mathematical reasoning of
Grade 11 learners on the concepts of reflection, translation and stretch of functions. The
aim was to gain awareness of any conceptions ...
This study used Polya’s problem-solving model to map the level of development of the algebraic problem solving skills of Grade 12 learners from the Oshana Region in Northern Namibia. Deficiencies in problem solving skills ...
The aim of this study was to investigate the comparative effects of Constructivist-Based Teaching Method (CBTM) and the Traditional Teaching Method (TTM) on Grade 11 Mathematics learners’ errors in algebra. The constructivist ...
Although South African teachers have ample opportunities for professional development (PD), weak results of learners show that these opportunities have had a limited effect on the development of the Mathematics teachers’ ...
South African learners continue to perform poorly in high school Circle Geometry. Lack of learner confidence and motivation in Mathematics may be the contributing factors to the low success rate in Circle Geometry. These ...
This study focused on teaching strategies preferred and used by grade 8 mathematics teachers, what they thought was most effective for learning mathematics as well as students’ perspectives of their mathematics classroom. ...
The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between High School learners‟ mathematics-related belief systems and their approaches to mathematics non-routine problem-solving. A mixed methods approach was ...
This study investigates the possibilities and implications for the teaching of the solving
of polynomial equations. It is historically directed and also focusses on the working
procedures in algebra which target the ...
There are numerous problems associated with the teaching of Euclidean geometry at
secondary schools today. Students do not see the necessity of proving results which
have been obtained intuitively. They do not comprehend ...
Die gebruik van simbole maak wiskunde eenvoudiger en kragtiger, maar ook
moeiliker verstaanbaar. Laasgenoemde kan voorkom word as slegs eenvoudige en
noodsaaklike simbole gebruik word, met die verduidelikings en motiverings ...
Piaget and Freudenthal advocated thinking levels. In the 1950's the van
Hieles developed a five level model of geometric thought. Judith Land
adapted the model in 1990, utilising four levels to teach the concept ...
Constructivist teaching strategies are undeniably accepted as effective in achieving the desired
educational goals of constructing knowledge through active and creative inquiry. Inasmuch as
teachers would love to adopt ...
The study developed and designed a pedagogical content knowledge framework to guide and support the professional development of pedagogical content knowledge to about 130 statistics teachers. It captured the experiences ...
The purpose of this study was to explore solution strategies that can enhance the achievement of low-performing Grade 12 learners in the following mathematical aspects: finding the general term of a quadratic sequence, ...
A study was undertaken to explore what constitutes instructional capacity in the teaching and learning of mathematics (TLM), with a focus on how schools (as institutions of teaching and learning) integrate resources for a ...
