Ford, Jessica – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2018
The world in which students are learning is unique. Technology is progressing rapidly, and this is having a direct impact on teaching and learning. Teachers have the choice to embrace this or not. The instant access to information has the power to change pedagogies and students' experience of mathematics learning. Hence several questions arise: Do…

Ferrington, Bruce – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2018
Making patterning the basis of mathematics investigations for an entire year produced unexpected results for Bruce Ferrington. A Year 2 class used the spatial tasks from the Pattern and Structure Mathematics Awareness Program (PASMAP) with a specific emphasis on patterning, to develop their thinking mathematically skills. The result was students…

Swan, Paul – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2018
In order to solve word problems, students need to be able not just to read the words but comprehend what they mean. Paul Swan discusses three tiers of vocabulary that need to be included in the pedagogy of mathematics lessons and strategies for classroom practice.

Baroutsis, Aspa; White, Sonia L. J.; Hamilton, Annette; Jones, Madeline; Waters, Rayelene – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2018
This article encourages approaches that develop children's understandings of data representations. In particular, when children develope flexibility in their approaches to data representation and understanding, the same data can be represented in different ways. Flexible and adaptive use of representations is part of mathematics competence which…

Hurst, Chris; Hurrell, Derek – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2018
This article describes some of the essential mathematics that underpins the use of algorithms through a series of learning pathways. To begin, a graphic depicting the mathematical ideas and concepts that underpin the learning of algorithms for multiplication and division is provided. The understanding and use of algorithms is informed by two…

Tripet, Kristen; Barker, Valerie; Patel, Ruqiyah; Thornton, Steve – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2018
Algebraic reasoning is foundational to all mathematical thinking. This is no less the case in the early years of school, where the capacity to recognise the structure of mathematical processes enables students to acquire deep conceptual understanding. It is through algebra, therefore, that students are able to explore and express mathematical…

Cheeseman, Jill; Klooger, Michele – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2018
A major problem for teachers is that students are different, they learn mathematics differently, and at different rates. Regardless of this, schools organise students into large groups or classes of 20 to 30 students all about the same age. Then there is the "Australian Curriculum: Mathematics" that states the student learning outcomes…

Vatalis, Emilia – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2018
This article explores how the use of digital devices such as fitness trackers, robotic toys and handheld mobile devices may be used by teachers to enhance student learning in geometric reasoning. It provides teachers with specific examples that encompass current pedagogy and practice to discuss the benefits of using these mobile devices within a…

Russo, James – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2018
Estimation is such an important yet sometimes overlooked skill. Enhancing estimation skills through exposing students to enumeration ('how many') problems where they are required to estimate before calculating is a critical aspect of developing number sense (Reys et al., 2012). This article describes a 'how many' problem undertaken with a small…

Russo, James; Russo, Toby; Bragg, Leicha A. – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2018
Mathematical games are widely used in the primary classroom; however, not all games are equally valuable. How might teachers decide which specific games to introduce? The authors present five principles of educationally-rich games to help teachers address this issue. In so doing, they provide teachers with a usable framework to stimulate…

Quinnell, Lorna – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2018
Successful mathematical problem-solving relies on choices about how best to represent and solve problems. In this article, a range of methods and strategies are presented for solving a single mathematical problem, including novel methods posed by in-service teachers at one Australian university. The variety of problem-solving strategies rely on…

West, John – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2018
The author showcases a number of readily available and affordable resources that may be used in mathematics classrooms to provide students with concrete learning experiences. Resources, alone, do not provide educational experiences unless they are accompanied by appropriate teaching to ensure rich and connected learning experiences.

Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2018
An alternative means of exploiting the benefits of children's storybooks when teaching primary mathematics is to be led by the story, rather than by the curriculum. This is referred to as a narrative-first approach, and contrast it with a curriculum-first approach (Russo & Russo, 2017e). The narrative-first approach involves first identifying…
