"Let's Count": Evaluation of a Pilot Early Mathematics Program in Low Socioeconomic Locations in Australia
Perry, Bob; Gervasoni, Ann; Dockett, Sue
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)
The "Let's Count" pilot early mathematics program was implemented in five early childhood educational contexts across Australia during 2011. The program used specifically formulated materials and workshops to enlist the assistance of early childhood educators to work with parents and other family members of children in their settings to help develop these children's awareness, confidence and skills in early mathematics. The pilot program was evaluated by the authors of this paper using a multi-methods approach. The evaluation was focused on the success of the "Let's Count" program in bringing early childhood educators, parents and other family members together, to enhance children's mathematical engagement, learning outcomes and dispositions.
