Project-Based Learning For Namibia Senior Secondary Certificate Ordinary Algebra In Selected Senior Secondary Schools In Kavango West Region In Namibia

ABSTRACT

This study investigated the effects of Project-Based Learning (PBL) for Namibia Senior Secondary Certificate Ordinary (NSSCO) algebra in selected senior secondary schools in Kavango West region. The study employed a quantitative approach. Furthermore, a quasi-experimental non-equivalent (pre-test - post-test) control research design was used to collect data from one school for two weeks. A sample of 80 learners was randomly selected from the poorest performing school (school E) and from the class lists of all Grade 11 learners. From this sample, 11 A, of 40 learners belonged to a control group and the other class, 11 D, belonged to the experimental group. Furthermore, lessons on algebra were conducted for two weeks for both groups (experimental and control). The experimental group learners were presented with real-life activities such as working on a project (designing a budget), outdoor practices such as field trips, small-group interactions, group work activities, simulations activities and watching videos, to enable them to learn algebra in a more project-based learning setting. In addition, the learners had an opportunity to interview people in their communities and do a research, with the use of internet and reading books, newspaper and other educational journals. The control group was taught the same lessons but using a different teaching strategy; chalk and talk, question and answer, lectures, as well as whole class discussions.
