ANNUAL NATIONAL ASSESSMENT

MATHS GRADE 6

ADDITIONAL EXERCISES

 

The following list of “Curriculum Assessment Standards” mirrors the National Curriculum (CAPS) requirements.

National Curriculum (CAPS) demand that education for a learner should be addressed according to specific requirements. To evaluate any learning material (textbooks or workbooks) you should be aware of the progressive, per term, prerequisites as per the Educational Department Teacher Guidelines.

Definitions:
To excel in Maths it is of utmost importance to grasp all the relevant Mathematical definitions. Scroll down to the Curriculum Assessment page and see icon. This icon strongly advises you to obtain a Wyze Workbook for definitions and explanations that fully comply with Educational requirements. Go to "Order Now" drop down for more information.
