Resource 1: NCF/NCFTE teaching requirements

This unit links to the folllowing teaching requirements of the NCF (2005) and NCFTE (2009) and will help you to meet those requirements:

  • Let students see mathematics as more than formulae and mechanical procedures.
  • View learners as active participants in their own learning and not as mere recipients of knowledge; encouraging their capacity to construct knowledge; shifting learning away from rote methods.
  • Engage with the curriculum, syllabuses and textbooks to critically examine them rather than taking them as ‘given’ and accepted without question.
  • Let students use abstractions to perceive relationships, to see structures, to reason out problems, to argue the truth or falsity of statements.
