Mathematics & Mathematical Literacy

We are very fortunate to have an excellent, enthusiastic team of Mathematics teachers at Alberton High.

Our goal is to motivate the learners to enjoy Mathematics and to find it logical, interesting and challenging.

Four of our classrooms have been equipped with data projectors and computers to encourage teaching of Mathematics using methods that allow learners to learn in a stimulation-rich manner.

We have a program in the afternoons to assist our gifted learners, as well as those who struggle with the subject.

In addition, we arrange extra lessons for learners who have registered to do the optional assessment standards in Mathematics by making use of an expert in this field.

We promote Mathematics Olympiads and involve our junior learners in Mathematical Challenges.

Our Grade 12 Mathematical Literacy learners and teachers of 2011 did us proud by achieving the highest average in the district!
