This was a pilot project, done as part of the Presidential Education Initiative,  which aimed to investigate the role of co-operative groupwork in learner achievement in mathematics in high schools and colleges. Four high schools and one college in the East Rand townships in Gauteng were originally involved in the project. The design was experimental for schools and qualitative for the college. Time constraint as a result of prevalent disturbances in township high schools, as well as the lack of prerequisite knowledge for lessons meant to be part of the intervention aborted the original experimental design aspect. The study, then focused on the investigation of the perception of cooperative groupwork held by educators and learners in three high schools and college. Based on these perceptions, inferences
were made on what could contribute to the improvement of achievement in mathematics.
