Poor mathematics results were the subject of a major debate in the 2008 matric results. Various reasons were advanced to explain the results. Very little research is conducted on what actually goes on inside classrooms to explain South Africa’s poor mathematical performance. Conducted as a joint HSRC-Stanford University project, this study reports on a pilot in 40 schools in Gauteng that investigated both policy and practice.
