Investigating an integrated teaching methodology as a means to prepare students for university studies in mathematics.

by Ceasar, Reginald Raymon

Abstract (Summary)
A key issue for the success of students entering a first year mathematics course at tertiary level is whether or not they have an integrated understanding and view of the mathematical concepts acquired at school. Various integrated applications from first year mathematics suggest that a compartmentalised view of mathematics would be detrimental to any student's chances of passing mathematics at this level. This study tried to assess whether learners do have an integrated understanding of mathematics at grade 12 level.
