AN award-winning teacher based in the US believes maths journals in the classrooms are the answer to South African schools' appalling maths results.
St Claire Adriaan, formerly of Port Elizabeth, is the principal at Success Preparatory School in the US, which educates children from kindergarten to Grade 6.
While on holiday back in the Bay as the matric results were released, Adriaan noted that more needed to be done to improve maths marks at Eastern Cape schools.
Adriaan, whose accolades include the Disney Teacher Award Honoree in 2006, the San Diego CW5 Dream Classroom winner in 2006, and University of Kentucky Teacher who made a difference in 2006-07, said maths journals in classrooms were one way in which to address the problem.
