Mathematics for future engineers : a study of teaching and learning mathematics in an engineering curriculum.
This is a study of teaching and learning in the first mathematics module for engineering students at a South African university. The theoretical framing of the study is derived from multiple analytical tools: Bernstein’s ...
Normality-like properties, paraconvexity and selections.
In 1956, E. Michael proved his famous convex-valued selection theorems for l.s.c. mappings de ned on spaces with higher separation axioms (paracompact, collectionwise normal, normal and countably paracompact, normal, and ...
Linear codes obtained from 2-modular representations of some finite simple groups.
Let F be a finite field of q elements and G be a primitive group on a finite set . Then there is a G-action on , namely a map G ! , (g; !) 7! !g = g!; satisfying !gg0 = (gg0)! = g(g0!) for all g; g0 2 G and ...
Exploring master teachers' use of visuals as tools in mathematical classrooms.
The teaching and learning of mathematics has presented a great challenge for mathematics educationalists over many decades. Researchers have been searching for new strategies and techniques for improving the understanding ...
Constructions and justifications of a generalization of Viviani's theorem.
This qualitative study actively engaged a group of eight pre-service mathematics teachers (PMTs) in an evolutionary process of generalizing and justifying. It was conducted in a developmental context and underpinned by a ...

The history of mathematics as a pedagogical tool: exploring learner perspectives with regard to the theorem of pythagoras.
This study sought to ascertain whether the inclusion of the history of the Theorem of Pythagoras has any positive influence on learners’ perceptions of the theorem and its applications, on geometry and on mathematics in ...
Exploring teachers’ understanding of pedagogic practices in teaching mathematical concepts in grade 1: a case study in South African primary schools.
The study examines teachers’ understanding of their learning theories on pedagogic practices in teaching mathematical concepts in Grade 1. The study emanates from the findings of the National Education Evaluation and ...
First-year engineering students' concept development of integral calculus at a South African university of technology.
This thesis reports on a study to explore the development of the concept of integration among the first year engineering students at a South African university of technology. The study focused on concept definitions that ...
