Chikiwa Masters thesis

Master’s thesis title: AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE MATHEMATICS KNOWLEDGE FOR TEACHING REQUIRED TO DEVELOP GRADE 2 LEARNERS’ NUMBER SENSE THROUGH COUNTING

Main research question: What Mathematics Knowledge for Teaching (MKfT) in relation to development of number sense through counting does an expert Grade 2 teacher have and use in her teaching?

Main theoretical / analytical frames: Mathematics Knowledge for Teaching (MKfT) by Ball, Thames and Phelps (2008). This framework defines six knowledge domains that are significant in the work of teaching mathematics.
