Cooke, Audrey – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
Although it is now more commonly acknowledged that young children can engage with mathematics, it is not as commonly acknowledged that really young children (such as those aged under three years) can engage with and think mathematically. One of the reasons for this is the inability of adults to recognise mathematics in what these young children…

McCluskey, Catherine; Mulligan, Joanne; Van Bergen, Penny – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
This position paper proposes that a relationship between young children's embodied mathematical concepts and their awareness of mathematical pattern and structure (AMPS) (Mulligan & Mitchelmore, 2009) develops through play. Theoretical perspectives on the development of schematic patterns, the embodiment of mathematical understandings, and the…

Telford, Richard D. – Asia-Pacific Journal of Health, Sport and Physical Education, 2017
A habitually active environment is a feature of past times, and in stark contrast with that experienced by our children today. Consequently, twenty-first century physical education (PE) assumes a position of great responsibility. This is especially true in primary schools; a premise recently strongly supported by published evidence from the…

Gervasoni, Ann; Lowrie, Tom; Logan, Tracy; Larkin, Kevin; Bateup, Claudette; Kinny-Lewis, Caroline – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
The symposium provides an overview of the Early Years STEM Australia (ELSA) program. The conceptual underpinnings of the program are framed within STEM practices, rather than traditional thinking concerning the integration of discipline content knowledge. We will argue that our focus on practices is more aligned with the play-based and intentional…

Powell, Sarah J. – Australian Association for Research in Education, 2016
This paper contemplates the way children exist, interact and intra-act with their worlds. It seeks to think differently about data and engages with the work of Deleuze, particularly grappling with his conception of 'becoming' and the ways in which children name their worlds and intra-act with natural entities. The paper emerged from conversations…

Thornton, Steve – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2014
In this paper I seek to critique pervasive notions of what counts in mathematics education using Heidegger's notion of the technological enframing. I suggest that early childhood and schooling have become technologies in themselves, casting students and teachers as part of the standing reserve within the inexorable drive for economic advancement.…

Sackett, Ginni – NAMTA Journal, 2014
Ginny Sackett lists many of the universal attributes of the absorbent mind--pattern recognition, order, incarnation, the rules for language, and numeracy. Her essay borders on the metaphysical as it suggests that the mathematical mind is really a non-entity and is responsible for all aspects of knowledge acquisition regardless of the discipline of…
