    The Pedagogy of Mathematics in South Africa: Book Launch

    Venue: CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria

     December 06 2017

    The Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA) is pleased to invite you to the launch of its newest book, The Pedagogy of Mathematics in South Africa: Is There a Unifying Logic? The launch will take place as part of the Science Forum South Africa 2017 programme.

    The Pedagogy of Mathematics in South Africa is the culmination of a MISTRA research project into the best pedagogical methods for the development and nurturing of mathematical talent in young people. The book investigates how the pedagogy of mathematics has developed in South Africa over time and explores the extent to which it reflects our political and social history. The study also measures current approaches against local and international best practice.

    The Pedagogy of Mathematics in South Africa:

    1. Offers an overview of key efforts in mathematics education and improvement in South Africa.

    2. Reflects on how South Africa’s colonial and apartheid past impacts on current mathematical proficiency in the country, and on social values and beliefs that relate to mathematics education;

    3. Collates some relevant international case studies of national strategies to improve mathematics education systems. The book also identifies potential, state-level levers for change, which could be adapted for South Africa.
