Making a Difference: The Early Numeracy Project.
Thomas, Gill; Tagg, Andrew; Ward, Jenny
The Numeracy Development Project (New Zealand), now into its third year of implementation, spans years 1 to 10 of schools. By the conclusion of 2001, the project had involved approximately 3,300 teachers and 64,000 students. The Number Framework forms the core of the project program by providing teachers with a knowledge of how students acquire number concepts, an increased understanding of how they can assist students' progress and an effective means to assess students' levels of thinking in number. This paper focuses on the impact that the project has had on the students in the first three years of school and their teachers. (Contains 19 references.) (Author/MM)
