Atweh, Bill; Goos, Merrilyn – Australian Journal of Education, 2011
The release of the "Australian curriculum: Mathematics" has generated considerable debate in the education community. Some educators warn that this debate has centred on mathematical content and skills, setting the conditions for a "back to basics" movement in line with the political rhetoric that accompanied the national…

Geiger, Vince; Goos, Merrilyn; Dole, Shelley – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2015
This paper presents a model of numeracy that integrates the use of digital technologies among other elements of teaching and learning mathematics. Drawing on data from a school-based project, which includes records of classroom observations, semi-structured teacher interviews and artefacts such as student work samples, a classroom-based vignette…

Goos, Merrilyn – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2013
This article discusses key issues surrounding the nature and development of professional knowledge for effective teaching of mathematics, especially at the secondary school level. In the education research community it is generally accepted that teachers need more than knowledge of the content they will teach; an additional construct, pedagogical…

Geiger, Vince; Goos, Merrilyn; Forgasz, Helen – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2015
This article is a state-of-the-art synthesis of literature concerned with the concept of Numeracy (also known internationally by other terms such as mathematical literacy), and the teaching, learning and assessment practices associated with this construct. Numeracy is a concept used to identify the knowledge and capabilities required to…

Cooper, Cath; Dole, Shelley; Geiger, Vince; Goos, Merrilyn – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2012
This article describes a project that focuses on how a Society and Environment unit could develop required numeracy. This is more of an integrated unit organised around a theme rather than a Society and Environment unit that required specific aspects of numeracy. Suggested data sources for examining students numeracy development included (1) a…

Matthews, Kelly E.; Adams, Peter; Goos, Merrilyn – International Journal of Science Education, 2016
Application of mathematical and statistical thinking and reasoning, typically referred to as quantitative skills, is essential for university bioscience students. First, this study developed an assessment task intended to gauge graduating students' quantitative skills. The Quantitative Skills Assessment of Science Students (QSASS) was the result,…

Goos, Merrilyn; Dole, Shelley; Geiger, Vince – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2011
In Australia, concerns about the quality of mathematics education that students experience are particularly salient in rural schools. These schools typically report great difficulty in attracting and retaining qualified teachers of mathematics. Teachers in non-metropolitan locations may also experience professional isolation if they have limited…

Geiger, Vince; Faragher, Rhonda; Goos, Merrilyn – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2010
This paper draws on a one year study of three secondary school classrooms to examine the nature of student-student-technology interaction when working in partnership with computer algebra systems (CAS) on mathematical modelling tasks and the classroom affordances and constraints that influence such interaction. The analysis of these data indicates…

Matthews, Kelly E.; Adams, Peter; Goos, Merrilyn – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2009
Mathematics and science are tightly interwoven, yet they are often treated as distinct disciplines in the educational context. This study details the development, implementation and outcomes of a teaching intervention that highlights the links between mathematics and science, in the form of a first-year interdisciplinary course. A mixed method…

Bennison, Anne; Goos, Merrilyn – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2010
The potential for digital technologies to enhance students' mathematics learning is widely recognised, and use of computers and graphics calculators is now encouraged or required by secondary school mathematics curriculum documents throughout Australia. However, previous research indicates that effective integration of technology into classroom…

Goos, Merrilyn; Bennison, Anne – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2008
For many years, education researchers excited by the potential for digital technologies to transform mathematics teaching and learning have predicted that these technologies would become rapidly integrated into every level of education. However, recent international research shows that technology still plays a marginal role in mathematics…

Geiger, Vince; Forgasz, Helen; Goos, Merrilyn – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2015
Numeracy is a fundamental component of the Australian Curriculum as a General Capability in each subject. Here, we report on an aspect of a larger project that aims to provide insight into how teachers can assist their students to develop a critical orientation to life-related situations through a cross-curricular approach to numeracy.…

Willis, Kym; Geiger, Vince; Goos, Merrilyn; Dole, Shelley – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2012
This article presents a lesson that focuses on numeracy. In the lesson, students were tasked to find the best path for a new expressway. The purpose of the activity was for students to gain an appreciation of the complexities associated with designing public infrastructure and to put into practice the mathematical skills. This article also…

Robutti, Ornella; Cusi, Annalisa; Clark-Wilson, Alison; Jaworski, Barbara; Chapman, Olive; Esteley, Cristina; Goos, Merrilyn; Isoda, Masami; Joubert, Marie – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2016
This article presents preliminary results from a survey commissioned for ICME 13 (2016) focusing on "Teachers Working and Learning Through Collaboration". It takes as a starting point a previous survey, commissioned for ICME 10 in 2004 that focused on Mathematics Teacher Education. The current survey focuses centrally on teachers…

Matthews, Kelly E.; Adams, Peter; Goos, Merrilyn – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2017
In the biosciences, quantitative skills are an essential graduate learning outcome. Efforts to evidence student attainment at the whole of degree programme level are rare and making sense of such data is complex. We draw on assessment theories from Sadler (evaluative expertise) and Boud (sustainable assessment) to interpret final-year bioscience…
