Reflection December 2014 Analysis of results
COMMENTS ON PAPER 1 Topics well answered: Quadratic equations Financial Maths Sequences and Series Differentiation from first principles and rules. Topics still problematic: Quadratic inequalities Sum to infinity for Geometric series Interpretation of graphs Inverses of functions Applications of Calculus Decoding of word problems The general counting principle
COMMENTS ON PAPER 2 Topics well answered: Statistics Basic analytical geometry. Topics still problematic Euclidean geometry riders Compound and double angles identities General solution of trigonometric equations Problems in three dimensions
HOMEWORK Analyse(per question) your school’s performance. Draw graphs for paper 1 & 2. Include national and WCED figures. Compile an operational plan on how your school is going to deal with the findings of the analysis. Plan must include actions/timeframes/target groups/ect. Plan to be submitted to SA by 20 February Plan to be signed by principal and HOD.

TIME ALLOCATION 4½ hours per week. Six(6) periods of 45 minutes each. Make sure you get the time on your roster.
TERM GRADE 10GRADE 11GRADE 12 TASKSWEIGHT (%) TASKSWEIGHT (%) TASKSWEIGHT (%) Term 1 Project/Invest Test Project/Invest Test Test Project/Invest Assign Term 2 Test/Assign Examination Test/Assign Examination Test Examination Term 3 Test 10 Test 10 Test Examination Term 4Test 10 Test10 Programme of Assessment mark 100 Programme of Assessment mark (as % of promotion mark) 25% End-of-year examinations 75% Promotion mark 100%
ELECTRONIC MARKSHEET Implications of CAPS document: Choice to record project/investigation in term 1 or 2. Combination (25% & 75%) applies to term I or term 2. This term weighting only applies to the term where the project/investigation is done. Where there are three tasks in the term where the project/investigation is done, the project/investigation must contribute 25% and the other two tasks 37,5% each to the term mark.
The 7 Formal Assessment Tasks : Grade tests 1 project / investigation June examination Final examination Or 4 tests 1 assignment 1 project / investigation June examination Final examination
MINIMUM CASS REQUIREMENTS GRADE Tests should be at least ONE hour long and count at least 50 marks. Project or investigation must contribute 25% of term 1 marks while the test marks contribute 75% of the term 1 marks. The combination (25% and 75%) of the marks must appear in the learner’s report. Formula sheet must not be provided for tests and for final examinations in grade
MINIMUM CASS REQUIREMENTS GRADE Mid-year examination: Grade 10 : One paper of 2 hours (100 marks) OR two papers of 1 hour each (50 marks each). Grade 11 : Paper 1 : 2 hours (100 marks made up as follows: general algebra (25+/-3);equations and inequalities (35+/-3); number patterns (15+/-3);functions (25+/-3) Paper 2 : 2 hours (100 marks made up as follows: analytical geometry (30+/-3) and trigonometry (70+/-3) Grade 12 : Two papers of 3 hours (150 marks each) – June and Sep.
MINIMUM CASS REQUIREMENTS GRADE Final examination: Grade 10 : Two papers of 2 hours each (100 marks per paper). Grade 11 : Two papers of 3 hours each (150 marks per paper). Grade 12 : Two papers of 3 hours each (150 marks per paper).

Cognitive levels for Grade Knowledge20% Routine Procedures35% Complex Procedures30% Problem Solving15%
Knowledge (20%) Straight recall. Identification of correct formula on the information sheet(no changing of the subject). Use of mathematical facts. Appropriate use of mathematical vocabulary.
Routine Procedures (35%) Estimation and appropriate rounding of numbers. Proofs of prescribed theorems and derivation of formulae. Identification and direct use of correct formula on the information sheet(no changing of the subjects). Perform well known procedures. Simple applications and calculations which might involve few steps. Derivation from given information may be involved. Identification and use (after changing the subject) of correct formula. Generally similar to those encountered in class.
Complex Procedures (30%) Problems involve complex calculations and/or higher order reasoning. There is often not an obvious route to the solution. Problems need not be based on a real world context. Could involve making significant connections between different representations. Require conceptual understanding.
Problem Solving (15%) Non-routine problems (which are not necessarily difficult). Higher order reasoning and processes are involved. Might require the ability to break the problem down into its constituent parts.
Annual Assessment Plan Annual Assessment Plan should be given to learners at beginning of year. Include dates, task, maximum mark

Moderation : 2015 Internal Moderation Curriculum Adviser: First Round Curriculum Adviser : Final Moderation and Verification:
HOD(or subject head) if HOD not subject specialist Moderation of tasks and assessment tools BEFORE task is given to learners Moderation of completed tasks of learners – 10% Record the moderated tasks (Names & Marks) Please record on electronic sheets. Moderation of the recorded marks Content page by teacherContent page Report by CAReport INTERNAL MODERATION
Moderation: What to look for? Duration, length Weighting of content Weighting of cognitive levels Language – mathematical vs layman Use of pictures, diagrams, graphs to facilitate language Technical care : Typed; Same font; NO copy and paste. Memoranda : Neatness; marks allocation; explanation for marks given. Instrument to be used.

Disadvantaged learners. Selection criteria: 70% ave. end of grade 11 (LO excluded) 70% for Maths and/or Physical Science and/or Life Sciences and/or Accounting. Want to study at US. One week classes in April, June and September holidays.
STUDY GROUPS Instruction from WCED. Appointment of Study Group Leaders. One study group per circuit (that’s is the dream). Needs analysis – what do you as teacher need? Meet at least once per term. Each study group will draw up its own programme for the year. CA to visit on invitation. Quarterly reports to be submitted by leader.
