Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA) (40th, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 2017)
The Australian Curriculum: Mathematics calls for the concurrent development of mathematical skills and mathematical reasoning. What are the big ideas of mathematical reasoning and is it possible to map their learning trajectories? Using rich assessment tasks designed for middle-years students of mathematics, this symposium reports on the preliminary phase of a large national study designed to move beyond the hypothetical and to provide an evidence-based foundation for learning progressions in mathematical reasoning in three key areas of the curriculum: Algebraic Reasoning, Geometrical and Spatial Reasoning, and Statistical Reasoning.
