O'Keeffe, Lisa; White, Bruce; Panizzon, Debra; Elliott, Katrina; Semmens, Alex – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
Studies, such as Programme for International Student Assessment 2012, indicate that there are gender based differences in measures of mathematics anxiety, self-concept and self-efficacy among students. In this study we explore self-efficacy, self-concept and mathematics anxiety in a sample of Year 7 and 8 South Australian students to examine if…

Kestel, Eugénie – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2014
This paper describes part of a mixed-methods study comparing the effectiveness of an individual, conceptual instruction based, tuition program delivered face-to-face and by personal videoconferencing (PVC) for 30 upper primary and middle school students with mathematical learning difficulties (MLDs). The experimental intervention targeted number…

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…

Redmond, Trevor; Sheehy, Joanne; Brown, Raymond; Kanasa, Harry – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2012
This paper seeks to compare the reflective writings of two cohorts of students (Year 4/5 and Year 8/9) participating in mathematical modelling challenges. Whilst the reflections of the younger cohort were results oriented, the older cohort's reflections spoke more to the affective domain, group processes, the use of technology and the acquisition…
