Hunter, Jodie; Jones, Ian – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
We administered specially-designed, free-response mathematics tasks to primary students (N = 583, ages five to 12 years old). Our focus was on whether (i) the children's responses could be reliably assessed, and (ii) the responses could provide insights into children's mathematical thinking. We used a contemporary comparative judgement technique,…

Loong, Esther Yook-Kin – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2014
To support teachers in their quest to incorporate reasoning as a mathematical proficiency as espoused in the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics, a professional learning research project using demonstration lessons was carried out. This paper reports on the impact of demonstration lessons on one participating teacher's pedagogical knowledge about…

Forgasz, Helen J.; Leder, Gilah C.; Halliday, Jennifer – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2013
"Make It Count" was a large scale, government-funded, project aimed at improving the mathematics learning of Indigenous students. NAPLAN Numeracy test results were used as one measure of the effect of the program. In this paper we report on the performance on these tests of Indigenous students in schools involved in the project. Group…

Fonger, Nicole L.; Stephens, Ana; Blanton, Maria; Knuth, Eric – Grantee Submission, 2015
We detail a learning progressions approach to early algebra research and how existing work around learning progressions and trajectories in mathematics and science education has informed our development of a four-component theoretical framework consisting of: a curricular progression of learning goals across big algebraic ideas; an instructional…
