Tait-McCutcheon, Sandi; Drake, Michael; Sherley, Brenda
Mathematics Education Research Journal, v23 n3 p321-345 Sep 2011
This paper builds from a prior study into the teaching and learning of basic number facts in New Zealand. It reports the changes in practice of one teacher that were brought about by her reflection on the effectiveness of her teaching and learning programme. It details how this teacher created a process which helped make the learning of basic facts more relevant and meaningful to her and her Year 6 students.
