Mathematics plays a fundamental role in promoting logical and rational thinking and enhancing the abilities to analyse and solve problems. It also acts, particularly in Mauritius, as a critical filter" in the social economic and professional development of individuals. An analysis of the performance of students in Mauritius at the School Certificate examination from 1995 to 2004 has revealed that boys were outperforming girls in mathematics at that level. This trend was confirmed through a Mathematics Questionnaire specially designed for this study. Through classroom observations and interviews of different stakeholders factors affecting Mathematics achievement of secondary school students were identified. To ensure gender equity and social justice strategies have been identified in view of enhancing the teaching and learning of Mathematics at the secondary level in Mauritius. A teaching and learning package has also been designed to promote student-centred practices and proper use of collaborative learning. It has been found that this package helps in motivating students towards the learning of Mathematics and in developing conceptual understanding in the subject."
