Gaunt, Lorraine; Visnovska, Jana; Moni, Karen – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
Design research (DR) methodology is often used to investigate the mathematical learning and trial the means of supporting it. We report on data from a larger DR study, in which we investigated how adults with intellectual disabilities (ID) continue to develop their numeracy in everyday activities. Previous analysis of data from this study…

Livy, Sharyn; Yanni, Marie; Downton, Ann; Muir, Tracey – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
This paper reports on a mathematics leader who participated as a co-teacher alongside a teacher educator in a university classroom. The collaboration was designed to bring the profession into the university. Case study research design and qualitative methods were used to analyse written self-reflections, transcripts of interviews and the…

Bennison, Anne – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
Numeracy is the responsibility of all teachers in Australia. Graduates from Initial Teacher Education programs must demonstrate knowledge and understanding of numeracy teaching strategies. Currently, there is a limited research base to inform curriculum design of courses that develop strategies for embedding numeracy across the curriculum. This…

Sharma, Sashi – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
It is acknowledged that there are connections between language use and mathematics in mathematics education, and the potential challenges this issue can pose have been investigated by researchers. Yet how the challenges can be overcome in statistics classrooms, where language is even more important as a medium of instruction, has received very…

O'Keeffe, Lisa – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
Language and communication are a core aspect of teaching and learning in mathematics, and teacher dialogue is central to this. As part of a larger project that explores how mathematics classroom language is impacted by standardised testing, this paper explores how two teachers use language in "redirecting," "progressing," and…

Seah, Rebecca; Horne, Marj – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
The concept of symmetry is vital for the study of science and developing spatial and geometric relationships. Yet few studies have been conducted to examine how students learn this concept. This study investigates 757 Year 4 to 10 students' ability to reason about symmetrical relationships. By analysing the semiotic processes through the lens of…

Serow, Penelope; Clark, Julie – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
This study investigated teachers' views, all from a Pacific Island context, of assessment practices as it relates to mathematics learning in early childhood, primary, and secondary settings. Based on the analysis of these views, collected via a written survey (n=25) from invited workshop participants in Nauru, a series of four mathematics…

Mesiti, Carmel; Clarke, David; van Driel, Jan – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
Experienced teachers, researchers and mathematics community members, contributed to the documentation of the professional vocabulary of teachers to describe the pedagogical practice of the middle school mathematics classroom. In this paper we use this Australian Lexicon to study which terms teachers deem essential for their classroom practice. We…

Woolcott, Geoff; Galligan, Linda; Whannell, Robert; Marshman, Margaret; Axelsen, Taryn – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
This paper is a preliminary investigation into first year undergraduate students' progress in academic numeracy studies across six Australian regional universities. The paper analyses a survey of university teachers, follow-up interviews and secondary academic numeracy data. Initial findings are presented in terms of the nature of academic…

Herbert, Sandra – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
Mathematical reasoning is foundational to making sense of mathematics. Yet assessing mathematical reasoning can be challenging for teachers. This paper reports on a project where teachers taught two lessons with a specific focus on reasoning and came together with other teachers at their school to attempt to assess the reasoning of their students.…

Cartwright, Katherin – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
Fluency is an important aspect of mathematics learning and plays a major role in developing proficiency as students are required to use skills and apply knowledge. This paper draws upon findings from a large project that aimed to explore primary students' mathematical fluency. Data from 160 primary students (K-6) from a NSW Departmental school…

Sharma, Shweta – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
The paper presents a systematic review synthesising and evaluating literature that focuses on developing a conceptual understanding of shapes and their representations. It maps out literature from 2010-2018 targeting students (5-13 years) based on a set of inclusion and exclusion criteria. The analysis revealed that studies fail to take account of…

Patahuddin, Sitti; Ramful, Ajay; Rokhmah, Siti – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
Central to the conference theme "Research Impacting Practice", this paper presents the findings of a large-scale mathematics professional development (PD) intervention in disadvantaged communities in Indonesia. The study investigated the impact of a lesson design-driven PD on secondary mathematics teachers' content knowledge (CK). The…

Davidson, Aylie – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
The process of planning to teach mathematics is complex and idiosyncratic and is gaining increased attention in educational research. In this paper, I propose a framework for conceptualising the critical factors that influence teachers' mathematics planning decisions. The framework is informed by the analysis of teacher survey data (n=114) and two…

Brown, Paul; Tang, Kok-Sing – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
Analysis of recently-released NAPLAN tests reveals that the tests cover year levels well below the nominal year and that some aspects of the mathematics curriculum are underrepresented. A high level of untested curriculum content descriptions was found.
