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:

  • Engage with the curriculum, syllabuses and textbooks critically by examining them rather than taking them as ‘given’ and accepted without question.
  • Appreciate the potential of hands-on experience as a pedagogic medium both inside and outside the classroom; and work as integral to the process of education
  • Support students to learn to enjoy mathematics rather than fear it.
  • Help students to see mathematics as something to talk about, to communicate through, to discuss among themselves, to work together on.
