Harris, Danielle; Logan, Tracy; Lowrie, Tom – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2021
"Location and Transformation" skills are critical tools for navigating the world and establishing foundational steps for geometric reasoning associated with co-ordinate grids and the Cartesian plane. The contextual nature of using local landmarks to understand students' mental representation of large-scale space has the potential to…

Laird, Alexandra; Grootenboer, Peter; Larkin, Kevin – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2021
The study reported here was conceptualised using a theoretical framework that included three dimensions of engagement; emotional, behavioural, and cognitive, and these were used to structure the data collection and analysis vis-à-vis learning mathematics outdoors. This comparative case study involved 34 students from two Year 6 classes at a…

Rogers, Angela – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2021
Test developers are continually exploring the possibilities Computer Based Assessment (CBA) offers the Mathematics domain. This paper describes the trial of the Place Value Assessment Tool (PVAT) and its online equivalent, the PVAT-O. Both tests were administered using a counterbalanced research design to 253 Year 3-6 students across nine classes…

Muir, Tracey – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2021
National testing and reform agendas, with their focus on school improvement, has led to increased collection and scrutiny of student data. The analysis of these data usually occurs at a school level, often by school leaders. What is less common is the opportunity for students to scrutinise their individual data and take ownership over the results…

Seah, Rebecca; Horne, Marj – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2021
As a multifaceted concept, the learning of angle concepts takes years to achieve and is beset with challenges. This paper explores how the processes of constructing and validating a learning progression in geometric reasoning can be used to generate targeted teaching advice to support the learning of angle concept. Data from 1090 Year 4 to Year 10…

O'Connor, Bronwyn Reid – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2021
This study investigated the implementation of a primary mathematics initiative in an Australian Indigenous community school designed to improve students' mathematical proficiency. Throughout the 7-month initiative, four classes ranging from Year 2 to Year 6 participated in the initiative. Findings indicated an increase in mathematics achievement…

Choy, Ban Heng; Yeo, Joseph Boon Wooi; Dindyal, Jaguthsing – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2021
Despite recent calls to adopt practice-embedded approaches to teacher professional learning, how teachers learn from their practice is not clear. What really matters is not the type of professional learning activities, but how teachers engage with them. In this paper, we position learning from teaching as a dialogic process involving teachers'…

Sharma, Shweta – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2021
This paper explores three multilingual students' (9 to 11-years-old) conceptual understanding of three-dimensional (3D) shapes as displayed through peer and classroom interactions in two New Zealand primary classes. Bakhtin's dialogic theory and Garfinkel's ethnomethodology inform the theoretical framework. The paper presents two excerpts from…

MacDonald, Amy; Murphy, Steve – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2021
This paper contributes to the Research Symposium, "Strengths approaches in early childhood mathematics education" by providing an illustration of how an early childhood centre adopts a strengths approach to mathematics education for birth to three-year-old children. A case illustration is drawn from a current Australian Research…

Chin, Sze Looi; Choy, Ban Heng; Leong, Yew Hoong – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2021
When mathematics teachers plan lessons, they interact with curriculum materials in various ways. In this paper, we draw on Brown's (2009) "Design Capacity for Enactment" framework to explore the practice of "adapting" curriculum materials in the case of a Singapore secondary mathematics teacher. Problems from the textbook used…

Collins, Fiona; Fenton, Angela – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2021
This paper provides a foundation for the Research Symposium, "Strengths Approaches in Early Childhood Mathematics Education" by providing an overview of the development of strengths-based approaches in social work and education. A framework, adapted from the Strengths Approach (McCashen, 2017), for applying a strengths-based approach in…

Toh, Tin Lam – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2021
This paper presents a case study of an experienced and competent mathematics teacher's classroom instructional practice in a Normal Technical Mathematics course. The topic that was observed was Volume and Surface Area of a Pyramid, a subtopic within the mensuration topic in Secondary Two syllabus. The teacher used a video clip on the Egyptian…

Calder, Nigel; Rhodes, Kate – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2021
This paper reports on two teachers' perceptions as part of a project examining the learning that took place when 9 and 10-year-old children used "ScratchMaths" in their programme. The project used design-based methodology, which incorporated video-recorded classroom excerpts, teacher interviews, and teacher analysis and review of their…

Palisse, Jennifer; King, Deborah; MacLean, Mark – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2021
Comparative judgement is a relatively new way of facilitating peer-assessment where students are shown pairs of other students' work and judge which of the two is better. Literature on example-based learning suggests that students should be able to learn from comparative judgement. We present the case of one student, Josie, whose understanding of…
