#### Using artefacts to support an embodied approach to learning trigonometry : a case study of grade 10 learners.

(2013)

The purpose of this study was to explore the role of artefacts (manipulatives) in the teaching and learning of trigonometric ratios in grade 10. The study focused on how the use of manipulatives aided learners’ mathematical ...

#### Maths anxiety and communication apprehension as barriers to learning mathematics.

(2011)

As learners progress through the educational system their interest in mathematics
diminishes. Although mathematics is designed to challenge learners, it has produced
a high number of failures. Mathematics is most often ...

#### Mathematical attitudes and achievement strategies of successful mathematics learners.

(2011)

Too often, discussions about Mathematics express feelings of anguish and despair; and, indeed Mathematics results in general in South Africa can be described as dismal. The Department of Education (DoE) reported that in ...

#### Geogebra, tool for mediating knowledge in the teaching and learning of transformation of functions in mathematics.

(2011)

As a teacher of mathematics, I always taught the topic functions (graphs such as linear,
quadratic, hyperbola, exponential, trigonometric functions) in the same way all of my
twenty-three years in the profession. I often ...

#### The construction and use of an evaluation instrument to measure attainment of objectives in mathematics learning at senior secondary level.

(1975)

This research aimed at measuring the extent to which a group of senior secondary pupils were attaining desirable cognitive objectives in mathematics. The summary of the design and procedures adopted in this study and the ...

#### The design and implementation of a classroom-based support programme in trignometry for use by underqualified educators.

(2005)

The main purpose of the study was to show the necessity of a classroom-based educator
in-service support programme. Educators have unique problems being derived from the
uniqueness of their school situations. Thus, the ...

#### The application of artifacts in the teaching and learning of grade 9 geometry.

(2005)

The main focus of the study was to explore how the experiences that the learners went through in the Technology class during the construction and design of artifacts, could be used to inform the teaching of Geometry in the ...

#### The effects of using visual literacy and visualization in the teaching and learning of mathematics problem solving on grade 6 and grade 7.

(2009)

In this study I examine the effects of visualization in the teaching of problem solving in
grades 6 and 7 in a school south of Durban in KwaZulu Natal. One of the goals of
mathematics instruction according to the Department ...

#### An APOS exploration of conceptual understanding of the chain rule in calculus by first year engineering students.

(2011)

The main issue in this study is how students conceptualise mathematical learning in the context of calculus with specific reference to the chain rule. The study focuses on how students use the chain rule in finding derivatives ...
