Mathematics in the FET Phase covers ten main content areas. Each content area contributes towards the acquisition
of the specific skills. The main topics in the FET Phase for Mathematics Curriculum:
- Number Patterns, Sequences, Series
- Finance, growth and decay
- Differential Calculus
- Euclidean Geometry and Measurement
- Analytical Geometry
The subject Mathematics in the Further Education and Training Phase forges the link between the Senior Phase
and the Higher/Tertiary Education band. All learners passing through this phase acquire a functioning knowledge
of the Mathematics that empowers them to make sense of society. It ensures access to an extended study of the
mathematical sciences and a variety of career paths.
In the FET Phase, learners should be exposed to mathematical experiences that give them many opportunities to
develop their mathematical reasoning and creative skills in preparation for more abstract mathematics in Higher/
Tertiary Education institutions.
