Simmons, Kelli; Fleer, Marilyn – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2023

At the commencement of 2022 there was an opportunity to be engaged in a curriculum development project focused on reimagining mathematics learning in primary schools. Schools were seeking new experiences to support engaging students and teachers in mathematics learning. Laburnum Primary School participated in the project with Monash University,…

Klooger, Michele; Klooger, Ashleigh – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2023

The authors discuss the use of "real life" activities that are interesting to children in the teaching of measurement and number concepts. In this article, they present a series of lessons targeting volume and capacity that seamlessly incorporate genuine "real-life" experiences with practical mathematical applications. In…

Roche, Anne; Clarke, Doug; Sexton, Matt – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2023

The authors describe a lesson--"You Decide"--which challenges students but also provides opportunities for success for those who may struggle. They show how this lesson has been helpful for teachers in revealing some misconceptions that often exist in primary students' thinking. In this article, they share data on the apparent relative…

Hubbard, Jane; Russo, James; Sullivan, Peter – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2023

This article is based upon Peter Sullivan's (2021) structured inquiry approach to teaching mathematics, in which the authors take a deep dive into the technique of "Spotlighting" in the "Explore" phase of this model to assist in optimal learning experiences for students. Working from the premise that students are best placed to…

James Russo; Toby Russo – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2023

Australian primary school teachers have reported that they use games frequently in teaching mathematics. In this paper, the authors discuss the game mechanics of five types of whole-class games that can be particularly powerful for supporting mathematical thinking and student engagement in mathematics.

Chloe Woolley – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2023

Time estimations, patterns and measurement sense are important skills to develop within the mathematics classroom (Mildenhall, 2016; Thomas et al., 2017). To develop a true understanding of time, students need to holistically understand: the language of time, the notion of duration and succession, how time is measured, and the concept of time…

Donna McNeight – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2023

Encouraging students' ability to reason can be looked at through the lens of both oral and written representations. In 2022, the author participated in the first intake of the Teacher Excellence Program run by the Victorian Teaching Academy. Being part of an in-depth professional learning program challenged the author's teaching practices to focus…

Nicholas Senior – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2023

Nicolas Senior shows how EMC3 's Launch-Explore-Summarise/Review model for mathematics lesson structuring sets the conditions to get the most out of both dialogic and direct instruction. He argues that this model will help teachers walk the balance between order and chaos.

Anita Green – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2023

Teachers naturally engage in the act of 'noticing' as part of their daily practice. This specialised form of noticing, referred to as 'teacher noticing', involves a deliberate focus on specific aspects within the mathematics classroom. The author's PhD research has investigated how the events teachers notice and respond to online in Emergency…

James Russo; Jane Hubbard – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2023

Beginning a mathematics lesson involving a challenging task with a carefully chosen preliminary experience is an effective means of activating student cognition. In this article, the authors highlight a variety of preliminary experiences, each with a different structure and form, all designed to support students to more successfully engage with…

Chelsea Cutting; Paul Unsworth; Belinda Trewartha – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2023

This paper focuses on the importance of identifying students' Prior Knowledge (PK) for the teaching and learning of mathematics. Specifically, we present a framework that exemplifies the core elements teachers need to consider in relation to the purpose, design and implementation of learning experiences that enable PK to be activated and assessed.…

Jill Cheeseman – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2023

The interactions young children have with adults are of vital importance in developing mathematical reasoning. This paper describes the behaviours of teachers who work with young children in school yet manage to have individual and natural mathematical conversations with children. These mathematical interactions young children have with their…
