This project aims to build a sustainable, evidence-based, integrated learning and teaching resource to support the development of mathematical reasoning in Years 7 to 10.
Australian Mathematics and Science Partnership Program funded by the Australian Government Department of Education
Grant funding $1,341,460
The project is building this resource working in conjunction with industry partners, practitioners and the professional community. The learning and teaching resource will extend the research-based framework for multiplicative thinking that underpins the Reframing Mathematical Futures Priority Project to provide a more comprehensive framework for identifying and responding to student learning needs in relation to algebraic, spatial and statistical thinking.
The resource will be developed and disseminated via a web-based portal in collaboration with the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers (AAMT). It will include validated assessment tools, an evidence-based framework for developing mathematical reasoning across all strands of the 7-10 mathematics curriculum, targeted teaching advice for each level of the framework, and task-based professional learning modules aimed at deepening teacher’s pedagogical content knowledge for teaching Year 7 to 10 mathematics.
