Research suggests that, while the capacity to use mathematics constructively is fundamental to the economies of the future, many graduates of the secondary-school system have a fragmented and de-contextualised view of the subject, leading to issues with engagement and motivation. In an attempt to address some of the difficulties associated with mathematics teaching and learning, the authors have developed… CONTINUE READING
