The Gates Cambridge Scholarship enables me to pursue my intellectual aspirations at an internationally renowned university. In Cambridge I have an opportunity to meet leading scholars, from all over the world. This will allow me to explore global trends in mathematics education with a critical reflection on how the best of these may be incorporated into curriculum practice in South Africa. In my PhD study I seek to investigate South African teachers’ practice in terms of the opportunities offered for the South African students to learn mathematics.
