Title Does Curriculum 2005 promote successful learning of elementary algebra?
Creator Vermeulen, Nelis
Subject Mathematics; Mathematics Education; Education Curriculum 2005; algebra;
Description This article reviews literature, previous to the development of Curriculum 2005, describing possible causes and solutions for learners’ poor performance in algebra. It then analyses the Revised National Curriculum Statement for Mathematics in an attempt to determine whether it addresses these causes and suggested solutions. This analysis finds that the curriculum to a large extent does address them, but that some are either not addressed, or addressed only implicitly. Consequently, Curriculum 2005 may only partly promote successful learning of elementary algebra.
