What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Contact forms / quizzes

If you have requested to be contacted via email, subscribing to a newsletter, or participating in a quiz or workshop, we will keep your information on file for that purpose.

Woocommerce / Shopping

All shopping is done via EFT transfer only, so we do not keep your bank details on file apart from what is displayed in the banking transaction records. If you email us your bank details (for example for a refund), you can request that the email be deleted at any time, and the information will not be shared with anyone.

We recently presented our annual maths camp where we hosted our top 15 educators as a reward for their dedication to the capacity building programme for educators.

We spent the weekend at the South African Wildlife College where Dr Hannah Barnes from BushMaths presented workshops on fractions and they also got to go on multiple game drives during their stay.

It was a wonderful weekend and a great way to conclude this year's workshops. We look forward to more successful capacity building next year!

Thank you Sabrina Chielens for the photos.

It is so important for kids to understand that a number is so much more than a "name label". Each number has a value and unless a learner makes the connection between the name label and the value of a number, they will struggle to gain any further feeling for mathematics. The same is true for mathematical symbols and their meaning. If a young learner does not understand what the "+" symbol in mathematics indicates, they cannot make meaning from a calculation such as 3 + 4. At BushMaths our goal is to make sure learners make these necessary connections so that maths makes sense to them through a natural feeling they develop for the numbers and the symbols. We see too much maths being practiced in schools without meaning, simply guided by rules that are imposed upon the learners in the hope they will remember them and apply them correctly. Maths is a creative, dynamic system and learners should have the opportunity to experience it as such and the learning thereof as an adventure and not a chore. ...
