Owner of the One-Stop-Math-Shop and author: Karelien Kriel
My name is Karelien Kriel. I am a qualified Mathematics and Science teacher (B.Sc. Ed degree from the University of Stellenbosch) but my real passion lies with Mathematics and Mathematical Literacy. I think it is important to teach people basic Mathematical skills that will give them confidence to better their lives.
In terms of Mathematical Literacy, I have been a Senior Marker (2008), Deputy Chief Marker (2009) and Chief Marker (2010) for Mathematical Literacy Paper 2 at the NSC (National Senior Certificate) examinations.
Through teaching, writing my own materials for learners, setting up and marking papers I have gained a lot of experience about this subject. I think of myself as a “Math Lit expert”. However, I always learn new things every day and I am far from perfect. I try my best in whatever I do and that is apparent in my work.
I am the founder and owner of the Karelien Kriel Math Lit Shop (now the One-Stop-Math-Shop), an online shop that was started in August 2014. I believe in quality teaching material and that all teachers and learners, wherever they are in South Africa, should be privy to it.
I have recently changed the goal of the shop. I now strive to make it THE one-stop-Mathematics-shop where parents can find extra resources and assessments (with complete memorandums) for their children to use as practice as well as a resource base for Mathematics teachers.
Resources will be free / paid. Our goal is to have many freebies available or to sell products at cheap prices so that normal people can afford it. That does not mean we compromise on the quality of our work. We give our best.
