The aim of the Saide ACEMaths project was to pilot a collaborative process for the selection, adaptation and use of OER materials for teacher education programmes in South Africa. A research article on the project entitled Collaborative Design and Use of Open Educational Resources: A Case Study of a Mathematics Teacher Education Project in South Africa by Ingrid Sapire and Yvonne Reed was published in Distance Education vol. 32 no. 2 August 2011. Our reflective report provides information on how the project was conceptualised and managed.

The units were adapted from a module entitled Learning and Teaching of Intermediate and Senior Mathematics, produced in 2006 as one of the study guide for UNISA’s Advanced Certificate in Education programme. The module is divided into six units which can be studied separately, but should be read together to provide comprehensive guidance. The solutions unit consists of general points for discussion relating to the teaching of the mathematical content in the activities. Step-by-step mathematical solutions to the activities. Annotations to the solutions to assist teachers in their understanding the maths as well as teaching issues relating to the mathematical content represented in the activities and suggestions of links to alternative activities for the teaching of the mathematical content represented in the activities.
