Mpalami, Nkosinathi – Pythagoras, 2022
Mathematics education remains problematic in South Africa's schools. However, some mathematics educators are deliberately using learners' home languages in tasks to assist learners to understand mathematics. Research-based evidence shows that learners' home languages when used as a resource have a potential to enhance learners' understanding of…

Makina, Antonia; Kadzere, Langton – Pythagoras, 2022
The education sector, among others, was severely affected by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Because mathematics has always been singled out as a subject that needs more verbal communication and interaction, rapid adjustments had to be made by mathematics lecturers in higher education institutions to try and facilitate normal…

Elbehary, Samah G. A. – Pythagoras, 2021
Interpreting phenomena under uncertainty stands as a substantial cognitive activity in our daily life. Furthermore, in probability education research, there is a need for developing a unified model that involves several probabilistic conceptions. From this aspect, a central inquiry has been raised through this study: how do preservice mathematics…

Vale, Pamela; Graven, Mellony H. – Pythagoras, 2021
The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic and the resulting school closures in South Africa necessitated a major shift in how to support learners' ongoing mathematics learning. For 10 weeks learners were strictly confined to their homes with restrictions that prohibited seeing any person outside of their household. The only means to access…

Soneira, Calos; Bansilal, Sarah; Govender, Reginald – Pythagoras, 2021
This study, using a quantitative approach, examined Spanish and South African pre-service teachers' responses to translating word problems based on direct proportionality into equations. The participants were 79 South African and 211 Spanish prospective primary school teachers who were in their second year of a Bachelor of Education degree. The…

Moyo, Methuseli; Machaba, France M. – Pythagoras, 2021
Our research with Grade 9 learners at a school in Soweto was conducted to explore learners' understanding of fundamental fraction concepts used in applications required at that level of schooling. The study was based on the theory of constructivism in a bid to understand whether learners' transition from whole numbers to rational numbers enabled…

Moleko, Matshidiso M.; Mosimege, Mogege D. – Pythagoras, 2021
Flexible teaching of mathematics word problems is essential to improve learning. Flexible teaching is vital in terms of providing meaningful learning, creating inclusive learning spaces and making content accessible. As such, teachers need to strive to provide flexible teaching of mathematics word problems in order to optimise and maximise…

Shongwe, Benjamin – Pythagoras, 2021
The research presented in this article reports on the results of a case study examining the classroom practice of one early career Grade 4 teacher (Nox, pseudonym) as she teaches equivalent fractions. The goal was to explore the ways and extent to which her instruction reflected a dialogical teaching approach, defined as a pedagogical approach…

Durandt, Rina – Pythagoras, 2021
This article sets out design principles to consider when student mathematics teachers are expected to learn mathematical modelling during their formal education. Blum and Leiß's modelling cycle provided the theoretical framework to explain the modelling process. Learning to teach mathematical modelling, and learning to solve modelling tasks, while…

Brodie, Karin; Gopal, Deepa; Moodliar, Julian; Siala, Takalani – Pythagoras, 2021
The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic supported an investigation of ongoing challenges as to whether and how to make mathematics relevant to learners' lifeworlds. Given that COVID-19 created major disruptions in all learners' lives, we developed and taught tasks that attempted to make links between their experiences of the pandemic and…

Chirinda, Brantina – Pythagoras, 2021
Problem-solving is of importance in the teaching and learning of mathematics. Nevertheless, a baseline investigation conducted in 2016 revealed that mathematical problem-solving is virtually missing in South African classrooms. In this regard, a two-cycle design-based research project was conducted to develop a professional development (PD)…

Marange, Tichaona; Adendorff, Stanley A. – Pythagoras, 2021
This study explores how online mathematics games contribute to Grade 8 learners' understanding of basic principles and more sophisticated aspects of algebra. This project documents the trajectory of a purposive sample of 30 Grade 8 learners doing mathematics and one mathematics educator. The study is premised on the argument that learners with the…

Moodliar, Julian; Abdulhamid, Lawan – Pythagoras, 2021
In South Africa, limited studies have been conducted investigating responsive teaching and little is known about how teachers respond to unexpected events 'in the moment' that did not form part of their planning. In this article, we report how a Grade 9 novice and expert teacher responded to unexpected learner offers during the teaching of algebra…

Mudaly, Vimolan – Pythagoras, 2021
In mathematics, problem-solving can be considered to be one of the most important skills students need to develop, because it allows them to deal with increasingly intricate mathematical and real-life issues. Often, teachers attempt to try to link a problem with a drawn diagram or picture. Despite these diagrams, whether given or constructed, the…

Venter, Christiaan – Pythagoras, 2020
Despite the function concept being fundamental to mathematics, an adequate understanding of this concept is often lacking. This problem is prevalent at all levels of education and is reported in many countries. This article reports on a new pedagogical strategy based on exploring photographs or digital images as functions. The objective of this…
