Understanding concepts in mathematics and science

Focus: A guide for teachers that mediates Mathematics and Science concepts in four languages (isiXhosa, isiZulu, English and Afrikaans). Two editions have been produced: one for GET (Volume 1, 2005) and another for FET (Volume 2, 2009). The books explain core concepts in Mathematics and Science.

They are aimed at addressing the lack of an adequate mediation mechanism that empowers teachers to skillfully code-switch between the language of instruction and mother tongue in order to give learners access to key conceptual building blocks in Mathematics and Science education. The material was produced by the Zenex Foundation in association with the Concept Literacy Project. Copies are available from major book academic bookstores or on direct order from Maskew Miller Longman at +27 (0)21 532 6000 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
