The research study conducted an in-depth analysis of the national marking memoranda on the topic of measurement in Mathematical Literacy. The object of analysis was the grade 12 national examinations. The purpose of Mathematical Literacy, according to the Department of Basic Education (DBE), is to equip learners with competencies that will enable them to use elementary mathematical concepts and skills to make sense of, participate in and contribute to the twenty-first century world characterised by numbers, numerically based arguments and data represented and misrepresented in a number of ways. With such competencies learners will in future become responsible individuals, contributing workers and participative critical citizens on social and political issues.
