The DBE, through its Research Coordination, Monitoring and Evaluation (RCME) unit, hosted the fifth symposium in its Early Grade Mathematics Research Programme (EGMRP) series on 8 August 2023. With symposiums on Mathematics learning outcomes, curriculum policy, interventions that work and the state of early grade Mathematics research in South Africa having already been hosted, this time around the focus was on the findings and recommendations of the recently completed review of Mathematics Learning and Teaching Support Material (LTSM) and assessments in public primary schools.
Initiated in 2017, the EGMRP seeks to build evidence of effective interventions to improve the teaching and learning of Mathematics in the Foundation Phase and to facilitate better evidence use in government policy and programme development.
