The 2021 year-end results proved this to be true by indicating a large loss in forward progress made up to the start of the lockdown during March 2020.

Loeriesfontein High School in the northern part of the Western Cape was no exception to this, and was identified for help from the My Maths Buddy One Book One Learner Project.

The project is an initiative of the South African Maths Foundation.

The project delivers the Effective Maths Teaching Programme for maths teachers and interactive learner workshops for learners, using an effective and successful My Maths Buddy Maths dictionary.

To date, it has schools raising their maths results.

The My Maths Buddy helps learners grasp and apply maths language and terms in order to improve their performance in class and during examinations.

The project was recently delivered to the maths teachers and Grade 8 to 12 learners at the Loeriesfontein High School sponsored by the Loeriesfontein and Khobab Wind Farms.
