  • ISSN : 1990-6811


LTM14 begins with an interview with Rhodes University's Deputy Vice Chancellor, Dr Sizwe Mabizela. Dr Mabizela is a renowned South African mathematician who enjoys "fiddling" or "doodling" with mathematical ideas. The interview engages him in a discussion around his passion for mathematics and mathematics education. In the second article in this issue, Mark Rushby presents and discusses a number of warm-up activities that he has found work well at a Grade 7 level and which have the potential to add to learners' enjoyment of mathematics. The third article explores conceptual and visual aspects of the process of "completing the square", while in the fourth article Mellony Graven and Hamsa Venkatakrishnan reflect on the Annual National Assessments (ANAs). Michael de Villiers then explores the idea that equality doesn't always represent the best solution to a modeling problem, while the sixth article reviews a useful website that allows one to tailor-make number line images.
