MIET AFRICA, supported by the Sanlam Foundation, implemented a maths support programme in 15 primary and eight secondary schools from 2017 to 2022 in KwaZulu-Natal. A set of 12 videos covering key topics on number concept development (number sense) at Grade 4 level was developed as one of the outputs of the support programme. The videos can be used by teachers during lessons, by learners (individual and in groups) at home or in school to cover learning gaps, and by caregivers (parents) in supporting their children at home. The videos are available in English and isiZulu.

Poor number concept development in primary school learners eventually leads to poor performance in maths in the higher grades. In the 2019 “Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study” (TIMSS) Grade 4/5 study, South Africa was one of the five lowest performing countries, with only 37% of South African learners demonstrating an acquisition of basic mathematical knowledge.
