It also envisages providing strategies to enable teachers to assist these learners.
Four schools in the Gauteng province were used to solicit rich data from nine participants. It was found that teachers lacked knowledge and understanding on how to support learners experiencing difficulties in learning mathematics. Teachers were also not appropriately trained and supported by the relevant stakeholders.
There was also a lack of appropriate resources. Using Frances Fuller’s concerns-based model of teacher development (CBMoTD), her paper argues that mathematics teachers need appropriate professional development and support as well as appropriate resources. A further recommendation is that the pacing of content in the Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS) be reviewed.
