The "Extending Mathematical Understanding" (EMU) Program is a specialised mathematics program that aims to accelerate the learning of Grade 1 students who struggle with learning school mathematics. Forty-two students participated in an EMU Program in 2010 as part of the "Bridging the Numeracy Gap" (BTNG) project. Analysis of students' mathematics knowledge at the beginning of the EMU Program highlighted how diverse was this group of students. The students' mathematics knowledge was assessed again at the beginning of the following year in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the program for accelerating learning. Overall the students made very good progress and their learning was maintained. [The research reported in this paper was funded by the Australian Government as part of the "Bridging the Numeracy Gap in Low SES and Indigenous Communities" Project.]
