Mahofa, Ernest; Adendorff, Stanley; Kwenda, Chiwimbiso – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2018
The aim of this study was to explore the learning of mathematics word problems by African immigrant early learners in the Western Cape Province of South Africa (SA). Phenomenology was used as the philosophical underpinning for this study and also informed the research method. Purposive sampling methods were used to select 10 African immigrant…

Herzog, Moritz; Ehlert, Antje; Fritz, Annemarie – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2017
Although the general development of mathematical abilities in primary school has been the focus of many researchers, the development of place value understanding has rarely been investigated to date. This is possibly due to the lack of conceptual approaches and empirical studies related to this topic. To fill this gap, a theory-driven and…

Alant, Busisiwe P.; Sherwood, Marion P. – African Journal of Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2017
Literature suggests that drawing has an important role in the development of learning and thinking skills and the communication of ideas. However, the role and use of drawing by young learners within the process of designing is poorly understood. Working with 22 Grade 3 learners from a well-resourced school in KwaZulu-Natal, this study sought to…
