2.4.5 Fostering creativity in teaching gifted learners mathematics in regular classroom in high schools

Teaching for creativity has been a learning goal for teachers across all disciplines and levels. In South African schools, mathematically gifted learners can make significant contributions to a community. Still they may be at risk of underachieving, unless teachers can derive methods to foster creativity to engage and challenge their abilities. The current education in South Africa supports inclusive education. This presentation reviews literature and previous research intended to discuss some of the methods that can be considered to improve learners' creativity.
