Mills, Judith – Teachers and Curriculum, 2019
The term numeracy is used widely in schools today and brings with it the expectation that students will be taught both how to do the mathematics, alongside an understanding of the concepts associated with the procedural application. One issue, which has arisen with the terminology 'numeracy classroom', is how to best support teachers to enhance…

Allen, Piata – Teachers and Curriculum, 2017
Maori-medium pangarau classrooms occupy a unique space within the mathematics education landscape. The language of instruction is an endangered minority language and many teachers and learners in Maori-medium pangarau classrooms are second language (L2) learners of te reo Maori. Mobile technology could be used in Maori-medium pangarau classrooms…

Dent, Wendy; McChesney, Jane – Teachers and Curriculum, 2016
This paper describes a period of substantial changes in the mathematics curriculum of one primary school in Christchurch. Using retrospective analysis, we identified two important conceptual themes: equity of mathematical learning and opportunities for all students to learn to be a mathematician. Access to research about these themes prompted two…

Young-Loveridge, Jennifer – Teachers and Curriculum, 2011
This paper challenges the emphasis on counting in New Zealand's Numeracy Development Project (NDP), arguing that subitizing provides an alternative pathway to quantification. Longitudinal data is presented showing that children's subitizing skills at the age of five years were a strong predictor of their later success in mathematics at the age of…
