SARChI: South African Numeracy

South African Numeracy – Professor Mellony Graven
Chair commencement date: 
January 2011
Relevance of research: South Africa faces a Mathematics crisis. Addressing this crisis requires a creative search for sustainable ways forward. Within the South African Numeracy Chair Project intervention programmes are being rolled out which focus on: numeracy teacher development; learner after-school clubs, and finally creating a general Mathematics buzz of passion and innovation in the broader Grahamstown area. Researching the nature of the effectiveness of this three-pronged approach is central to all research conducted by members of the South African Numeracy Chair Research Team.
