dc.description.abstract Discussions with teachers, headmasters and two Inspectors of Schools led to the decision to make an effort to find out whether there were actual weaknesses in the teaching of Arithmetic in the Primary school on the part of the teacher. Further discussion with members of the Faculty of Education of Rhodes University, and in particular, discussions with Professor A. Noble, led to the final crystallisation of the main topic of research. It was decided to start as far back as possible as far as the Primary school teacher is concerned, that is, with students entering Teachers Training Colleges for their first year of training. An attempt was to be made to determine the Mathematical competence and qualifications of these students as well as to investigate their attitudes towards Arithmetic and Mathematics. Attention was also to be paid to such factors as Anxiety levels and general levels of intelligence as a subsidiary study, complementary to the work being done by Professor Noble. Following the advice of Wiseman (1966), accounts of particular aspects of previous work has been inserted in the experimental section of the study rather than in the first review of pertinent literature. en
