Master Maths,one of the founding members of ADESSA, has been providing professional maths tuition since 1976. Its unique method of integrating personal contact from tutors with interactive computer lessons sets them apart from other maths tuition services. Lessons are authored by highly competent mathematics teachers who interpret the South African curriculum and convert it into a user friendly and easy to understand format. Lesson content is regularly updated according to changes in the curriculum and CAPS document.
Master Maths provides learners with the opportunity to work through the curriculum at their own pace, and at their own level of ability. Learning is reinforced and evaluated both on the computer and through worksheets, which are done in writing and assessed by the tutors. With better understanding comes improved marks and improved confidence. The end result is a positive, motivated, independent learner who has the opportunity to choose the future he or she wants.
Master Maths covers the entire South African mathematics curriculum for Grades 4 to 12 with more than 154 centres across Southern Africa. They also offer Master Science for Grades 10 to 12.
The Blended Learning concept is new to many teachers in South Africa!
One of ADESSA’s members, Maths & Science Marketing, has taken blended learning to the next level, making full use of ICT to enhance the teaching and learning of these critical subjects in South Africa. The subjects being catered for are: Grades 1 – 12 Maths, Grades 10 – 12 Science and Grades 10 – 12 Maths Literacy
With Blended Learning, teachers and learners can make full use of the various forms of hardware equipment – computers, tablets, smart phones, data projector, TVs and the internet. These pieces of equipment may then be used by teachers and learners to access any materials and methodology that is available from the Maths & Science Marketing website – all for FREE!
A single page in the Blended Learning programme (and there are at least 300 pages) identifies and isolates a particular topic/chapter and all relevant CAPS aligned material published by MSM on the website, together with what is also available on the same topic from other top-class websites, is all avaiable from one page on the site by means of links to the respective topic on each of at least 6 – 8 other websites!
