Mukwambo, Muzwangowenyu; Ngcoza, Kenneth; Ramasike, Lineo Florence – Pedagogical Research, 2018
Learners in lower primary and even some in upper primary grades grapple to perform mathematical operations which involve fractions. Failure to solve these mathematical operations creates a gap in the teaching and learning processes of mathematics. We opine that this is attributed to use of traditional mathematical approaches of teaching and…
