An analysis of grade 10 mathematics task perform from a feeder school perspective

Makgaleng, Mphalele Peter. January 2015 (has links)
M. Tech. Education / There are two systems of secondary education in South Africa. Some secondary schools are composed of five grades: 8 to 12 (Secondary System A, SS-A), while others start at Grade 10-12 (Secondary System B, SS-B). As can be anticipated, these two systems are compositionally different, with schools in SS-B being dependent on feeder schools around them for enrolment of Grade 10 learners every year. This means that the composition of Grade 10 learners in these two systems is not the same. This study acknowledges that there are important differences in Grade 10 learners belonging to these two systems.

Financial management of schools in Tshwane : a social justice perspective

Van Dyk, Helen. January 2014 (has links)
D. Tech. Education / Although vast disparities in education were inherited from the "apartheid" government, the enactment of the South African Schools Act No.84 of 1996 (SASA) attempted to democratise school governance, redress past inequalities and improve overall school management, including financial management. Despite these efforts by government, in Tshwane there are still disparities in the financial functioning of different schools. For instance, whilst one school was establishing a science laboratory of R2 million, another school lacked basics such as chairs and desks, resulting in learners having to sit on the floor, 18 years after the new political dispensation. This study was undertaken with the aim of providing guidelines to ensure the fair and effective financial management of schools in Tshwane. The study revealed that the new Constitution of South Africa and the concept of free education were positive attempts by government to adhere to the social justice principle in education. It was however, evident from the data that the ineffective quintile rankings, vast variations in school fees, varied income from fundraising projects and lack of financial knowledge and skills, contributed to current disparities in school finances, which proved to be detrimental to the social justice principle.

Critical success factors adopted by members of project management South Africa

Mdose, Sandile MacIntosh. January 2016 (has links)
M. Tech. Business Administration / This study was undertaken to establish the critical success factors from the literature that are present in success of projects and to identify the positive impact in project management. The study was quantitative in nature and primary data was collected using an online structured questionnaire as a research instrument to the target population following a survey method. Bar-charts were used to present the results and t-test was used for the analysis of the data in view of the objectives of the research. For t-test, a significance level was set at a = 0.05. In the South African context, the findings showed that communication, scope management and a project team in project success; planning, top management support and commitment and risk management in project management success were found to be the important critical success factors as they were ranked top 3 respectively.

An analysis of community support for tourism in Swaziland: the case of Ezulwini valley.

Dlamini, Xolile H. January 2013 (has links)
Thesis (MTech. degree. Tourism and hospitality management) -- Tshwane University of Technology, 2013. / The purpose of this research was to analyse the community support for tourism in with specific reference to Ezulwini Valley. The research shows that, although some benefits have been identified, there remain many challenges in the Ezulwini Valley (EV). Since it is evident from various studies that community-based tourism brings more benefits for locals; more interaction is therefore needed between the locals and the government. Increased local involvement and participation will help to ensure that people are empowered and the conservation of natural resources takes place in Swaziland. The South African Government specifically indicated by means of the White Paper on the Development and Promotion of Tourism that responsible tourism should contribute to the sustainable development of Southern Africa. Economic, environmental and social guidelines should direct this type of tourism development and should encourage the involvement of the local communities through community-based tourism. The purpose of this research was to investigate the development of rural tourism in the Ezulwini Valley, analysing the involvement of the community in rural tourism, as well as identify potential unexploited rural tourism opportunities in the EV. The literature study revealed that the local community is not involved in making decisions concerning their environment and tourism development within their communities. The study also revealed a variety of possibilities that could contribute more to both entrepreneurial and employment opportunities for the local rural tourism communities in South Africa, and similarly for communities in Swaziland, such as the Ezulwini Valley. The target population in the study comprised of 200 questionnaires, and of these 177 or 88.5% completed the questionnaires. To clarify uncertainties resulting from the questionnaires that were used in the survey, an interview was conducted by the researcher with one authoritative person. The interview was with the director of the Swaziland Environmental Authority SEA), Mr. S.S. Vilakati. The objective of the interview was to prepare the questionnaire. The study includes a literature review related to community support for tourism in the Ezulwini Valley and a questionnaire. The questionnaire used includes open- and closed-ended questions. The target population is comprised by the residents of Ezulwini Valley. The majority of respondents agreed that they would support the community involvement (particularly by women) in decision-making. Respondents are also of the opinion that tourism is growing very fast in the Ezulwini Valley, in spite of certain inhibiting factors that require attention.

Real-time application of synchronised phasor measurement units in power system small-signal stability analysis.

Ngoma, Louwrance Jack. January 2014 (has links)
M. Tech. Electrical Engineering. / Discusses that most real-time applications of synchronised phasor measurement units in power system stability studies are done using RTDS simulator, hardware PMUs and PTP hardware modules with GPS providing the time reference. The major drawbacks of this configuration are both technical and economical. The technical limitations are related to the possible number of outputs that can be used to interface PMU devices, which can be very limited; and also the possible limits on small-time step computation due to the big number of output signals. The economic constraints are mainly due to cost: for a research laboratory, only a limited number of units can be acquired due to budgeting issues. To overcome these difficulties, the realisation of an entirely software-based synchrophasor measurement unit, presents an attractive approach. Such a unit will be capable of deliveringreal-time data by acquiring the voltage and current signals from the Matlab/Simulink simulator, low cost software environment PMUs computing real-time phasors of voltage and current and software only PTP synchronisation protocol. The unit delivers synchrophasors for the application of power system SE and small signal stability analysis, but also taking into consideration the accuracy of the synchronisation protocol on the application of power system SE and small signal stability analysis.
