Mr. Madimetja Matlala from Gahlanso Primary School teaches adding mixed fractions to his Grade 6 learners. This is a practical lesson that involves fraction circles, this is because concrete apparatus helps the learners to understand. The teacher works from what the learners already know to what they need to learn in this lesson. He discusses the rules and shows the learners representative examples before showing them different methods to calculate the answers. Learners are encouraged to participate by answering questions and by coming to the front and completing sums. You can also allow the learners to peer teach each other when giving them sums to work on as pairs. The learners who tend to be shy can ask for assistance from their partners.
