Clarke, Doug – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2021
This article focuses on the unintended consequences of within-class ability grouping on primary students of mathematics. I review relevant research, including promising approaches to teaching in mixed ability settings. I then outline four ways in which these groupings are typically structured, discussing some of the issues that arise with each of…

Hourigan, Mairéad; Leavy, Aisling – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2021
The authors use finding the area of irregular shapes as the context for developing flexible strategies for measuring area. This article builds on their paper, "Setting a Design Challenge: Promoting the Discovery of the Relationship between Area and Perimeter" (EJ1272407). As part of Lesson Study research within an initial teacher…

Tzur, Ron; Johnson, Heather L.; Hodkowski, Nicola M.; Nathenson-Mejia, Sally; Davis, Alan; Gardner, Amber – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2020
Children learn to find answers when multiplying two whole numbers (e.g., 3 × 7 = 21). To this end, they may repeatedly add one number (e.g., 7 + 7 + 7 = 21). But what meanings do they have for multiplication? The authors address this issue while sharing an innovative, playful task called Please Go and Bring for Me (PGBM). Drawing on the…

Muir, Tracey; Bragg, Leicha; Murphy, Carol; Walsh, Chris; Oates, Greg – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted on schools globally with closures and the implementation of online learning (UNESCO, 2020). This rapid shift has resulted in a significant change to traditional modes of delivery, including classroom teaching and professional learning opportunities for teachers, as well as thinking differently about…

Russo, James; Russo, Toby – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2020
Providing students with rich tasks that are both engaging and mathematically important is a vital aspect of teaching primary mathematics effectively. One means of supporting the development of rich tasks that meet these criteria is to embed them in a narrative. Narratives can aid in the development of mathematical understanding through a number of…

Owens, Kay – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2020
In this article Kay Owens explains how a real-world context can be used to encourage student noticing and deeper analysis of geometric structures when students are asked to draw what they saw. Kay presents examples of students' drawings made during a school trip to the zoo which followed a series of inquiry learning experiences in geometry.

Jazby, Dan – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2020
In this article Dan Jazby also explores the issue of noticing, but this time from the teacher's perspective. Dan argues that teacher noticing is a purposeful activity that requires both the technical skills to recognise how students are thinking and the tactical skills to know when and where to look for particular cues.

Bragg, Leicha A.; Herbert, Sandra – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2020
This article explores the approaches used to plan mathematical reasoning tasks by two peer learning teams, one based in regional Victoria and the other in Vancouver, Canada. The results revealed that planning and peer observation support teachers' knowledge of mathematical reasoning and the pedagogy required to promote it.

Oslington, Gabrielle – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2020
A key element of statistical literacy is the construction and interpretation of graphs. In this article, the author uses examples of student work (Years 3 and 4), at an Australian school, to show some of the complex steps involved in creating a formal graph from a data table. Over time the student's observations and understanding become more…
