Counting on in the Middle Years
Leslie White, Allan
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (33rd, Freemantle, Western Australia, Jul 3-7, 2010)
The 2009 "Counting On" program has evolved from a series that began in 1999 and which continued to expand and change until the current manifestation. The program has always had a twin learning focus upon both students and teachers. Thus it seeks to improve student mathematical outcomes while building capacity within the teachers by improving their professional situated mathematical knowledge which is the knowledge teachers need to effectively teach the early mathematical concepts to their students in a classroom context. "Counting On" 2009 was evaluated and this paper will use the findings of the evaluation report (White, 2010 in press) to examine whether the program was successful in changing student learning outcomes. (Contains 7 tables.) [For the complete proceedings, "Shaping the Future of Mathematics Education.
