Resource 1: NCF/NCFTE teaching requirements
This unit links to the following teaching requirements of the NCF (2005) and NCFTE (2009), and will help you to meet those requirements:
- View students as active participants in their own learning and not as mere recipients of knowledge; how to encourage their capacity to construct knowledge; how to shift learning away from rote methods
- 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 things, to argue the truth or falsity of statements
- Engage with the curriculum, syllabuses and textbooks critically by examining them rather than taking them as ‘given’ and accepted without question.
