In the Foundation phase the focus is on counting rather than calculating. But as learners progress to the Intermediate Phase, the focus should shift to calculating more efficiently without having to count every object. For example in this photo of the Red Lechwe a learner in Grade 4 should be able to:
a) have some idea of the number of Lechwe by just looking at the photo (a feeling for numbers)
b) be able to make a rather accurate estimate by counting the Lechwe on one side and doubling that amount rather than counting all of them.
c) be able to count in groups of two or more rather than counting single objects
Contact us for more information on developing a feeling for maths early in learners.

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.
