Schools revise maths curriculum

Johannesburg - Mathematics, the subject sure to leave pupils groaning in confusion, suddenly has fresh appeal in Gauteng schools.

The education department has piloted a new and interactive way of teaching algebra and geometry, using social media and satellites. And it seems to be working.

Not only are pupils' results looking up, but teachers are learning something too. 

When results plummeted last year, Gauteng Education officials decided to intervene.
 

 

Meanwhile, Gauteng MEC for Education Barbara Creecy has explained to eNCA,  the full functionality of the province's plans to teach maths to learners through a virtual broadcast.

 

Watch: eNCA news anchor Joanne Joseph talks to MEC Barbara Creecy about the department's new plan.
