WE ARE CURRENTLY RUNNING THREE AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMMES. MATHS CLUB IS ONE OF THEM.
DESCRIPTION
We are currently running a weekly Maths Club with 20 Gr.4-7 learners at our learning centre. We are also using the activities and resources obtained from The Maths Club Collective in our AftaCool programme that reaches >140 children. The children really enjoy the math games and we can see their confidence growing week by week.

AIM
South Africa currently sits with a crisis in primary education where learners are still bound by using concrete strategies to solve problems. Many learners are ‘trapped’ in using concrete one-to-one counting methods or dependence on algorithms without understanding. The result is an absence of flexibility and fluency with both numbers and operations.

Based on the research and development work carried out in the South African Numeracy Chair (SANC) project on after school clubs since 2011, it was noted that working with learners to focus specifically on the development of fluency and number sense over a short period of time has positive results.

The aim of our After-school Maths Club is to provide fun, exciting and engaging maths activities for learners in Grades 1-6. The lesson plans and activities are designed to build strong number-sense skills and a love for mathematics.The clubs allow the learners opportunities to actively engage with mathematics and sense making as well as for mathematical confidence building.
