  • Yani, Bridgette; Harding, Ansie; Engelbrecht, Johann (Taylor and Francis, 2019)
    This paper focuses on the students who are registered in the University of Pretoria’s academic development programme, named the Four-year Programme (FYP). The programme was introduced as a gateway for students who are ...
  • Billman, Anneli; Harding, Ansie; Engelbrecht, Johann (Taylor and Francis, 2018)
    The purpose of this case study is to explore the integration of technology into teaching at a mathematics department at a large South African University. Both quantitative and qualitative data were collected from staff ...
  • Engelbrecht, Johann; Harding, Ansie; Potgieter, Marietjie (Southern African Association for Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2014)
    Academic development (AD) programmes for students not complying with the entrance requirements of mainstream programmes in science have been running at a number of universities in South Africa. In this study we contribute ...
  • Engelbrecht, Johann; Harding, Ansie (Mathematics Ecudation Research Group of Australasia, 2008)
    Following the political changes of 1994 in South Africa, the decision was taken to replace the traditional skills-based education system at primary and secondary school level (Grades 1–12) with an outcomes-based education ...
  • Harding, Ansie; Engelbrecht, Johann; Verwey, Amanda (Taylor & Francis, 2011-10)
    The supplemental instruction (SI) programme has been well-established worldwide and the resulting success of the programme is indisputable. The University of Pretoria has decided on SI as the model to be used for addressing ...
  • Engelbrecht, Johann; Harding, Ansie (Taylor and Francis, 2015)
    In keeping with the national mandate of increasing graduates in the sciences in South Africa, a concerted effort in improving the first year experience becomes imperative. First year mathematics courses commonly provide ...
  • Engelbrecht, Johann; Harding, Ansie; Phiri, Patrick A. (Suid Afrikaanse Akademie vir Wetenskap & Kuns, 2009-12)
    Are students who have been educated in an outcomes-based approach prepared for university mathematics? Following the political changes of 1994 in South Africa, the decision was taken to replace the traditional skills-based ...
  • Huntley, Belinda; Engelbrecht, Johann; Harding, Ansie (Pushpa, 2010-12)
    In this study, we develop a model, which we call the quality index (QI) model, for measuring how good a mathematics question is. Based on the literature on mathematics assessment, we develop a theoretical framework, using ...
  • Harding, Ansie; Engelbrecht, Johann (AOSIS Open Journals, 2012)
    Navorsing oor voorgraadse wiskundeonderrig is ’n betreklik nuwe veld wat sy beslag minder as 20 jaar gelede in die Verenigde State van Amerika (VSA) gekry het, en onder die akroniem RUME (Research on Undergraduate ...
  • Tsanwani, Avhasei Richard; Harding, Ansie; Engelbrecht, Johann; Maree, J.G. (Kobus) (Southern African Association for Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2014)
    Under-performance in mathematics is a challenge in South African schools. The purpose of this study is to advance views expressed by teachers and learners on factors that facilitate learners’ performance in mathematics. ...
  • Harding, Ansie; Engelbrecht, Johann (Taylor & Francis, 2007-01-07)
    This paper, the first of a two-part article, follows the trail in history of the development of a graphical representation of the complex roots of a function. Root calculation and root representation are traced through ...
  • Engelbrecht, Johann; Fouche, W.; Harding, Ansie; Wiggins, Harry (Routledge, 2015-06)
    Sibling curves were demonstrated in papers [2, 3] as a novel way to visualize the zeros of complex valued functions. In this paper, we continue the work done in those papers by focusing solely on polynomials. We proceed ...
  • Harding, Ansie; Engelbrecht, Johann (University of Venda, 2018)
    The study is set at a large, research-intensive university in South Africa. The teaching model in mathematics for entry level students is that of large group teaching, with up to five hundred students per group. The ...
  • Wiggins, Harry; Harding, Ansie; Engelbrecht, Johann (Taylor and Francis, 2017-10)
    This paper presents an enrichment case study to showcase a possible avenue for attending to the needs of academically strong mathematics students. We report on a group of university students who were presented with the ...
  • Wood, Leigh N.; Mather, Glyn; Petocz, Peter; Reid, Anna; Engelbrecht, Johann; Harding, Ansie; Houston, Ken; Smith, Geoff H.; Perrett, Gillian (Springer, 2012-02)
    We report on an international study about mathematics students’ ideas of how they will use mathematics in their future study and careers. This builds on our previous research into students’ conceptions of mathematics. ...
