Mavhunga, Elizabeth; van der Merwe, Denise – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2020
The divide between theory and practice is an enduring challenge commonly attributed to disconnection in teacher knowledge between 'knowing what to do' (planning) and 'doing what you know' (enacting in class). We re-visited this divide from the new perspective of pedagogical content knowledge with the purpose of examining the ways in which…

Fritz, Annemarie; Long, Caroline; Herzog, Moritz; Balzer, Lars; Ehlert, Antje; Henning, Elizabeth – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2020
Against the background of the low mathematical performance of South African learners in international panel studies, there is an urgent need to improve mathematical education. In particular, the curriculum and its structure raise questions. It is logical that the prescribed curricula should align with learners' developmental trajectories. Given…

Juta, Abigail; Van Wyk, Chris – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2020
This paper reports on an investigation into management in Mathematics classrooms. Classroom management is contextualised in terms of the managerial actions required to manage classrooms effectively and the extent to which effective classroom management responds to contextual challenges. Relevant literature is reviewed, and theoretical perspectives…

Buma, Anastasia; Nyamupangedengu, Eunice – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2020
Recent reforms in science education highlight the need for student-centred approaches to teaching in school curriculum policy in South Africa. Science teachers are required to move away from traditional teacher-centred practices which regard students as mere passive recipients of knowledge. In this study, we examine classroom talk for the type of…

Das, Dillip Kumar – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2020
Debates continue about assessment methods and tasks in higher engineering education that would enable assessment of cognitive learning attributes and attainment of graduate attributes. This study explored the students' perceptions of the conventional and alternative assessment methods that are relevant and could be used to assess cognitive…

Iwuanyanwu, Paul Nnanyereugo; Ogunniyi, Meshach Bolaji – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2020
The aim of the study was to determine the effects of a dialogical argumentation instructional model (DAIM) on pre-service teachers' ability to solve conceptual maths-in-physics (MIP) problems. Using a quasi-experimental design the study included two equal groups of pre-service teachers (N = 40) to follow two instructional methods in which the…

Askew, Mike – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2020
This paper argues that there is a gap in the research on teaching and learning mathematics, and thus a need for research into effective teaching practices. From a selective review of literature, reasons are examined as to why less emphasis appears to have been placed on generating knowledge about teaching and effective mathematical teaching…

Juggernath, Avashkumar; Govender, Nadaraj – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2020
Ample research exists on barriers to the use of computers as a form of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in teaching. The most common barrier reported to prevent teachers from using computers in teaching is the lack of resources. However when resources are available, ICTs are still often not effectively integrated into teaching.…

Long, Caroline; Wendt, Heike – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2019
The chain of progression from teacher education to qualification to classroom instruction and student engagement, and then to learning and achievement, is not as straightforward as often presented. Societal, political and economic pressures create either a positive climate or a stressful one for both teachers and students. Nevertheless it is safe…

Bowie, Lynn; Venkat, Hamsa; Askew, Mike – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2019
The Primary Teacher Education (PrimTEd) project was established in response to concerns about the pre-service preparation of primary teachers in South Africa. In order to inform the development of appropriate pre-service mathematics courses, an initial need in the PrimTEd project was to establish the nature of the mathematical knowledge of…

Mudadigwa, Brighton; Msimanga, Audrey – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2019
Evidence from the literature supports the idea that a hierarchical and coherently organised curriculum fosters meaningful learning. We argue that the learning can only be realised if teaching complements the curricular coherence by allowing learners to make links during the teaching and learning process. The study reported in this paper explores…

Kotoka, Jonas Kwadzo; Kriek, Jeanne – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2019
Various reasons for underperformance in physical sciences have been found, such as a lack of teachers' content knowledge and a lack of resources. This study looks into the extent of alignment between the various levels of the curriculum on circuit electricity (intended, implemented and attained levels). The research took place in Mpumalanga…

Machaba, France; Du Plooy, Maryna – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2019
This article presents balanced views of Mathematical Literacy (ML) and Mathematics (M), from both an analytical perspective and the subjective perspectives of teachers and learners. From the analytical perspective, policy documents and the literature spanning the period from the inception of ML to date are reviewed. Glimpses into the subjective…

Gweshe, Lovejoy Comfort; Brodie, Karin – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2019
We investigate Grade 10 learners' mathematical identities, with a focus on influences on the learners' identities. A mathematical identity questionnaire was given to learners and their test scores accessed. Four learners were purposively selected for interviews on the basis of interesting relationships between their questionnaire responses and…

Dagogo, Ibiye Tonye; Davidowitz, Bette; Taylor, Dale L. – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2019
This study examined final year undergraduate chemistry students' choice of study programme offered at a large research-intensive university in South Africa, applying Social Cognitive Career Theory as a theoretical framework. The sample consisted of 18 students of diverse ethnicity and gender from both the extended curriculum programme and the…
