Mahlaba, Sfiso Cebolenkosi – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2020

Mathematics in its nature is exploratory, giving learners a chance to view it from different perspectives. However, during most of their schooling, South African learners are rarely exposed to mathematical explorations, either because of the lack of resources or the nature of the curriculum in use. Perhaps, this is due to teachers' inability to…

Venkat, Hamsa; Askew, Mike; Watson, Anne; Mason, John – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2019

In this paper, we provide an elaboration of the notion of mathematical structure -- a term agreed upon as valuable but difficult to define. We pull apart the terminology surrounding the notion of structure in mathematics: relationship, generalising/generalisation and properties, and offer an architecture of structure that distinguishes and…

Graven, Mellony – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2016

In this article, South Africa provides an "outlier" case study that illuminates the tensions that exist between interventions, aimed at tailoring initiatives to the vastly unequal contexts of schooling, and the systemic "one size fits all" interventions of the state. I draw on the experiences of two teachers involved in an…

Venkat, Hamsa – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2013

The notion of temporal range is introduced and discussed in this paper. Two dimensions of temporal range are identified: mathematical temporality relating to mathematical ideas, their precursors and horizons; and a mathematical learning temporality where what students say/do provides the ground on which future learning can be built. These…

Ntenza, S. Philemon – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2004

This article arises from a broader study that investigates the benefits and forms of mathematical writing and written texts produced by twelve- to thirteen-year-old students in grade seven classes in six junior high schools in KwaZulu-Natal, particularly in the context of major curriculum changes within South Africa, These recent changes in…

Graven, Mellony – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2003

This article arises from a broader study that investigates mathematics teacher learning in relation to teachers' participation in a two-year In-Service Education and Training (INSET) programme, structured to enhance participation in a community of practice, in the context of current South African curriculum change. The broader study focused on…

Brodie, Karin – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2000

Describes a study which took place in a grade 9 classroom that consisted of five groups with 3-5 pupils in a group. Pupils were required to calculate the areas of a number of shapes on a geoboard. Concludes that a teacher working with pupils in small groups brings new challenges for mathematics teachers. (Contains 11 references.) (ASK)

Breen, Chris – For the Learning of Mathematics, 1993

Discusses a methods course for preservice mathematics teachers that addresses the affective side of learning mathematics. Students are encouraged to reflect on their experiences in relation to themselves as learners, teachers, and mathematicians. (MDH)
