The marking of matric mathematics scripts at the end of each year is a long and deliberate process. Huge amounts of time and energy are invested in ensuring that the learners are accorded marks that are as correct and as fair as possible. In as much as it is a task for educators to mark the scripts, it also becomes a strong learning mechanism for educators to develop themselves as mathematics teachers. This paper then serves to look at the way the marking process impacts on the teaching and learning of mathematics. It has always been assumed that the lessons learned during the marking process will filter down to all mathematics educators so that useful adjustments can be made to their teaching style and the content they teach in the class.
