Welcome back to school for the 2017 school year.

Mathematics is increasingly important in this modern world of technology and knowledge, and many disciplines require that you study mathematics, rather than mathematical literacy, from grades 10-12, and that you have a good pass mark, so that you can enter further study in these other disciplines.

Our focus for this year will be on the Senior Phase, grades 7-9, to support both learners in these grades, as well as to provide support for learners in the FET Phase grades 10-12, since all of this core mathematical knowledge from the Senior Phase is used throughout the FET Phase.

My own experience has been that learners in grades 10-12 often make mistakes on mathematics which is part of this grade 7-9 work.

Should you wish to be a part of the mathematics.co.za community, then please send me an email and I will register you as a used on the web site. Due to excessive spam subscriptions I have decided to stop the automatic subscription process and I will register everyone individually.

So look out for the new posts on the web site, and let us work towards you increasing your mathematics proficiency significantly over this year.
