Way, Jennifer; Thom, Jennifer S. – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
This paper contributes to the Symposium: "Research Methods Involving Children's Drawings in Mathematical Contexts" by exploring the use of digital pens as a data gathering tool. The availability of digital recording devices has been a boon to researchers wanting to capture the real-time dynamics of a research situation. When capturing a…

Quane, Katherine; Chinnappan, Mohan; Trenholm, Sven – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
This paper contributes to the Symposium: "Research methods involving children's drawings in mathematical contexts" by providing insight into young children's attitudes towards mathematics through the use of drawings. Children in Years 2 and 3 (n=25) participated in this study which aimed to identify a range of attitudes towards…

Cheeseman, Jill; McDonough, Andrea – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
Following the teaching of a unit on mass measurement to 274 children (6 to 8 years of age), each of 13 classroom teachers administered an open-ended assessment task. Children represented their perceived knowledge of mass measurement in response to an "Impress Me" prompt. Drawn and written recordings were complex and multi-dimensional,…

Lowrie, Tom; Logan, Tracy – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
The Early Learning STEM Australia (ELSA) pilot was a year-long investigation involving 300 educators and 4 500 four-year old children in one hundred learning centres across Australia. This paper reports on a pedagogical and design framework that was constructed to promote children's STEM engagement across digital and non-digital learning…

Logan, Tracy; Larkin, Kevin – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
The Experience, Represent, Apply (ERA) heuristic is an innovation of the Early Learning STEM Australia (ELSA) project. It provided educators with an approach that embeds digital technologies in play-based learning in such a way that the focus of the learning remains on the child and not on the device. This paper reports on the experiences of early…

Larkin, Kevin; Lowrie, Tom – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2019
In this paper we critique existing research on the role and nature of digital technology use in Preschools. The majority of the literature points to overwhelmingly positive outcomes for young children when digital technology is thoughtfully used in play based learning contexts. However, despite the wealth of evidence that the use of tablets can be…

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…
