Features of the Learner's Book Mathematical concepts are introduced by means of hands-on, real-life situations. Integration across the Learning Areas gives scope for intriguing contexts to be explored in mathematical ways. Core concepts are reinforced. Learners acquire problem-solving skills and apply these. Activities are supported by illustrations. The 'Let's check' feature at the end of units helps to reinforce success. Features of the Teacher's Guide The Teacher's Guide provides a summary of how to teach MLMMS in an outcome-based classroom. Specific Outcomes and Assessment Criteria are given for each module.
