Abstract

Classroom instruction and engagement are at the core of learning, and day-to-day classroom educational activities are likely to have a direct impact on mathematics learning. An important aspect of instructional clarity is the identification of clear teaching behaviour. The educator needs to employ instructional techniques and explanations to ensure learners' comprehension of challenging topics.
