Botha, Hanlie; van Putten, Sonja – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2018
Mathematical literacy (ML) is a compulsory subject in South Africa for those learners who choose not to do mathematics to Grade 12 level. ML is designed to enable a learner to become a self-managing person by providing opportunities to analyse and solve real-life problems through the mathematisation of contextual situations. The subject thus lends…

Essien, Anthony A. – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2018
The purpose of this study was to provide a systematic review of research that has been carried out between 2006 and 2016 on the role of language in early grade (Grades 1-4) mathematics teaching and learning in three countries--Kenya, Malawi and South Africa. These countries were selected because they have similar characteristics: teaching and…

Chirinda, Brantina; Barmby, Patrick – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2018
The South African curriculum emphasizes the teaching of problem solving in mathematics. However, little is known about South African teachers' views on the teaching of mathematical problem solving (MPS). The purpose of this study was to establish Grade 9 South African teachers' views, teaching strategies and the support required in their teaching…

Umugiraneza, Odette; Bansilal, Sarah; North, Delia – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2018
What teachers teach, how they teach it and when they teach it should be guided by the curriculum. This paper focuses on teachers' reports about how they integrate the curriculum documentation in teaching mathematics and statistics concepts. Questionnaires containing both Likert scale and closed and open-ended questions were administered to 75…

Tsakeni, Maria – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2018
The realisation that education may, in part, have contributed to non-sustainable environmental practices warrants rethinking about what learners experience at school. One approach could involve the promotion of education for sustainable development (ESD). This study analysed the opportunities to integrate ESD presented by the chemistry component…

Chani, Fungisisai; Ngcoza, Kenneth Mlungisi; Chikunda, Charles; Sewry, Joyce – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2018
Chemical equilibrium is one of the most important yet difficult topics to teach. The purpose of this study was to examine how two science teachers experienced the mediation of and how they mediated learning of this topic, chemical equilibrium, to high-achieving students. Data were collected using semi-structured interviews, lesson observations and…
