Sawatzki, Carly; Goos, Merrilyn – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2018
This article examines some of the complexities associated with developing financially literate, enterprising young Australians through school education. We aimed to explore what seems to influence students in pricing goods for sale within their school community. Data were collected from more than 300 years 5 and 6 students (10-12 years of age) in…

MacDonald, Amy; Carmichael, Colin – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2018
International research suggests that early mathematical competence predicts later mathematical achievement. In this article, we explore the relationship between mathematical competencies at 4-5 years, as measured by teacher ratings, and later results on Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 "National Assessment Program -- Literacy and Numeracy" (NAPLAN)…

Fielding-Wells, Jill; O'Brien, Mia; Makar, Katie – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017
Inquiry-based learning (IBL) is a pedagogical approach in which students address complex, ill-structured problems set in authentic contexts. While IBL is gaining ground in Australia as an instructional practice, there has been little research that considers implications for student motivation and engagement. Expectancy-value theory (Eccles and…

Gould, Peter – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017
Learning to count and to produce the correct sequence of number words in English is not a simple process. In NSW government schools taking part in "Early Action for Success", over 800 students in each of the first 3 years of school were assessed every 5 weeks over the school year to determine the highest correct oral count they could…

Jorgensen, Robyn; Larkin, Kevin – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017
In this article, we argue the need to use inter-disciplinary paradigms to make sense of a range of findings from a research project. We developed a methodology using iPad diaries to uncover young students' thinking--mathematical, social and affective--so as to better understand their experiences of mathematics. These students, predominantly from…

Sawatzki, Carly – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2017
As part of ongoing design-based research exploring financial literacy teaching and learning, 10 tasks termed "financial dilemmas" were trialled by 14 teachers and more than 300 year 5 and 6 students in four government primary schools in urban Darwin. Drawing on data related to three tasks--"Catching the bus," "Laser…

Wilkie, Karina J. – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2016
A key aspect of learning algebra in the middle years of schooling is exploring the functional relationship between two variables: noticing and generalising the relationship, and expressing it mathematically. This article describes research on the professional learning of upper primary school teachers for developing their students' functional…

Handal, Boris; Campbell, Chris; Cavanagh, Michael; Petocz, Peter – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2016
This study validated the semantic items of three related scales aimed at characterising the perceived worth of mathematics-education-related mobile applications (apps). The technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) model was used as the conceptual framework for the analysis. Three hundred and seventy-three preservice students studying…

Bragg, Leicha A.; Herbert, Sandra; Loong, Esther Yoon-Kin; Vale, Colleen; Widjaja, Wanty – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2016
Mathematical reasoning is now featured in the mathematics curriculum documents of many nations, but this necessitates changes to teaching practice and hence a need for professional learning. The development of children's mathematical reasoning requires appropriate encouragement and feedback from their teacher who can only do this if they recognise…

Watson, Jane M.; English, Lyn D. – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2015
The practice of statistics is the focus of the world in which professional statisticians live. To understand meaningfully what this practice is about, students need to engage in it themselves. Acknowledging the limitations of a genuine classroom setting, this study attempted to expose four classes of year 5 students (n?=?91) to an authentic…

Miller, Jodie; Warren, Elizabeth – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2014
Students living in disadvantaged contexts and whose second language is English (ESL) are at risk of not succeeding in school mathematics. It has been internationally recognised that students' socioeconomic background and their achievements in mathematics is more pronounced for Australian students (Thomson et al. 2011). This gap is even more…

Roche, Anne; Clarke, Doug M.; Clarke, David J.; Sullivan, Peter – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2014
The content and purpose of written unit plans in mathematics is an under-researched area. In this article, we provide a brief overview of research on teachers' planning processes and the place of mental and written plans. We report on data from a questionnaire completed by 357 teachers from Victorian Catholic primary schools, where we focused on…

Roche, Anne; Clarke, Doug M. – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2013
This article reports on a study that was conducted with 378 primary teachers from Catholic schools in Victoria who participated in the first year of a 2-year research and professional learning program in mathematics. One aim of the program was to enhance teacher knowledge in mathematics in its many forms. As part of the larger study, the teachers…

Mushin, Ilana; Gardner, Rod; Munro, Jennifer M. – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2013
In classrooms tests, students are regularly required to demonstrate their understanding of mathematical concepts. When children encounter problems in demonstrating such understanding, it is often not clear whether this is because of the language of the teachers' questions and instructions or a genuine non-understanding of the concept itself. This…

Sullivan, Peter; Clarke, David J.; Clarke, Doug M.; Farrell, Lesley; Gerrard, Jessica – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2013
Insights into teachers' planning of mathematics reported here were gathered as part of a broader project examining aspects of the implementation of the Australian curriculum in mathematics (and English). In particular, the responses of primary and secondary teachers to a survey of various aspects of decisions that inform their use of curriculum…
