Good number sense skills and strong foundational understanding is essential for success in mathematics.
Currently, 84% of SA Grade 3 learners are below grade level in numeracy.1
More than half of Grade 5 learners are unable to reach even the Low International Benchmark (TIMSS, 2015).2
What we do
After-school Maths Clubs 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.
In Diepsloot, we’re running 25 Maths Clubs in 2018 and aim to establish 100 Maths clubs by 2020. In partnership with SA Numeracy Chair Project, Axium Education, Kellelo, and the Wits Maths Connect Project.
2018 Numbers: 300 Grade 1-6 learners
How we measure
We conduct formal assessments using the Early Grande Maths Assessment (EGMA) tool.
A baseline assessment is conducted and the comparative analysis will take place at the end of each year.
The Grade 1-6 Maths Clubs learners attend clubs after-school once a week.
