A community of practice for South African ML Teachers
We will use this network to help everybody keep up to date on the latest developments in Mathematical literacy (ML), debate and discuss issues, share resources, blog about and discuss "How I teach", keep track of curriculum document and discuss textbooks. This group is private so that we can feel free to discuss resources, tests and exams. As a member you will be able to invite other members who you feel will be able to add value to our maths lit community of practice.
