Trialling the Australian Curriculum
Ashman, Di
Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, v15 n4 p15-16 2010
In 2010, St. Leonards Primary School in Tasmania, along with other selected schools throughout Australia, trialled the draft Australian Curriculum: Mathematics. Mathematics had been a whole school focus at St. Leonards Primary School for several years, and the school found that the opportunity to be part of the trial strongly connected with their continuing development of a whole School Numeracy Framework. The school decided to focus on the content strand Measurement and Geometry, because it was an area that had been given less prominence previously. This article presents examples of the work developed as a result of the trial and describes the units of work and the focus for the work sample. (Contains 4 figures.)
