Resource 1: NCF/NCFTE teaching requirements
The learning in this unit links to the NCF (2005) and NCFTE (2009) teaching requirements as specified below:
- View students 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 see mathematics as something to talk about, to communicate through, to discuss among themselves, to work together on.
- Let students use abstractions to perceive relationships, to see structures, to reason out problems, to argue the truth or falsity of statements.
