Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA) (35th, Singapore, Jul 2-6, 2012)
This paper explores the role of professional learning community and collegial discussion as important supports for developing teacher expertise in the teaching and learning of mathematics in rural and remote regions of Queensland, Australia. The research reported in this paper is from the first year of a longitudinal research and development project. Findings suggest that teachers in rural and remote schools with a small number of mathematics teachers may benefit from access to the mathematics professional learning community of a larger rural school.
