Further Education and Training (FET) Mathematics Certificate Course (University of South Africa ...

Further Education and Training (FET) Mathematics Certificate Course (University of South Africa (UNISA), Pretoria, South Africa) Adapted by Ronel Paulsen UNISA offers certificate courses for maths teachers wishing to improve their knowledge for the teaching of maths in specific areas. Ronel Paulsen adapted the full ACEMaths module for the purposes of an FET (Grades 10,11 and 12) certificate course. This adaptation was versioned to include maths examples and activities appropriate to the FET Mathematics teacher in the place of some of the original activities which were more geared to primary school teachers. There is also one full new unit (Unit 3) which presents FET mathematics content and four additional readings appropriate for FET teachers. One of the original ACEMaths units (Unit 6) was omitted from this adaptation.

In this second part of Volume 2 we focus on the meaning of the word 'misconceptions'and compare it to the general understanding of the meaning of 'errors' and 'mistakes'. These different words have different concepts associated with them. We tend to use the word 'misconception' indiscriminately when talking to colleagues, and more often than not, we are talking about learner errors or mistakes rather than misconceptions.
