Product Description

Teaching Mathematics: Foundation to Senior Phase is the second edition of the first South African text on mathematics methodology. It includes reference to the South African mathematics syllabus as contained in the Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS) and focuses on typical challenges faced in the mathematics classroom in South Africa and southern African countries.

Teaching Mathematics also contributes to the Africanisation of the discipline of mathematics education by stimulating thought and research about African perspectives and indigenous knowledge, including the language of location and the importance of using place-based examples in the classroom. The text makes use of African contexts in the teaching of mathematics, using
African examples to which learners can relate, such as local names, artefacts, and elements of cultural heritage.

Teaching Mathematics has a unique structure that takes readers through the stages of how learners learn mathem at ics, and how to teach mathematics, before drilling down to specific themes. The book provides practical pedagogy that will connect student teachers to the bigger picture of mathematics. This textbook will encourage student teachers to feel positive about mathematics and their role in teaching it, and to enter the classroom confident that they are equipped with the practical knowledge, skills and strategies for teaching mathematics.
