Sugianto, Ellen – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2023
South Australia's PISA performance has been in constant decline since 2003 with the proportion of PISA participants meeting the Australian national proficient standard dropping from 73% (in 2003) to 50% (in 2018). In contrast, Singapore is a consistently strong performer. To better understand student readiness in answering PISA questions, this…

Salim, Soma – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2023
Climate change is a complex issue that requires collective actions from various disciplines, including educating future generations about sustainability. Some countries such as Indonesia and Australia have included sustainability into their school curricula, which require teachers to design and implement tasks related to a sustainability issue.…

Sun, Jiqing; Gu, Yifan – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2023
Fostering students' bidirectional conception of the equal sign (viewing the equal sign as indicating an equivalence of two sides rather than a 'show result' symbol) is challenging, and students' misconception of the equal sign is persistent. Some studies mention that in China, the pedagogical approach to introducing the equal sign supports…

Sharma, Shweta – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2023
The interactional role of language use in the mathematics classroom is explored in the last few decades. This paper adds to the knowledge base by exploring different ways of talking that children and their teacher use in a New Zealand primary geometry English-medium classroom. Bakhtin's concept of speech genres is used for an analysing transcript…

Toh, Tin Lam; Tay, Eng Guan; Kaur, Berinderjeet; Leong, Yew Hoong; Tong, Cherng Luen – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2023
Big Ideas in school mathematics can be seen as overarching concepts that occur in various mathematical topics in a syllabus. Although there has been much interest recently in the understanding of Big Ideas, there is little research done in the assessment of Big Ideas thinking. In this paper, we discuss our research on Big Ideas in School…

Gorman, Vanessa; O'Keeffe, Lisa; Albrecht, Amie; McPhee, Jarrad – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2023
It is well accepted and understood amongst the mathematics education community that numeracy is the responsibility of all teachers, across all levels of schooling. However, the way numeracy is understood and actioned across the Early Childhood, Primary and Secondary contexts is different. This paper reports on a case study of secondary school…

Vale, Pamela; Westaway, Lise – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2023
Place value is a foundational competency for primary school mathematics and for this reason we have sought to investigate what the recent and current academic conversations are around this important concept. In this paper we present a survey of literature presented in the Australasian, European and Southern African contexts through a review of…

Oslington, Gabrielle; Mulligan, Joanne – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2023
Two case studies of Australian primary school students tracked changes in their data interpretation and representation over three years. Students were engaged in predictive reasoning tasks based on their interpretation of a data table showing temperature change over time. Students' explanations and graphical representations were collected at the…

Ma, Xiaowen – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2023
This paper reports on the development of six student teachers' knowledge of instructional strategies (KOIS) for teaching proportions during a 2-month practicum in China. Development of four subcomponents was explored through Content Representation (CoRe) questionnaires and follow-up interviews. Data was analysed deductively and levels of each…

Feng, Maggie; Bobis, Janette; O'Connor, Bronwyn Reid; Way, Jennifer – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2023
The current study explored the reasons for students' preferences for the teach-first and task-first lesson structures, and whether students' preferences were influenced by their perceptions of the teacher's preference. Students (n=18) from two composite Year 3 and 4 classes (aged 8-10 years) completed a post-lesson drawing task and participated in…

Kaur, Berinderjeet; Tong, Cherng Luen; Jahangeer, Mohamed Jahabar – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2023
The primary school mathematics syllabuses in Singapore as of the year 2020 reinforces that Big ideas are central to the learning of mathematics. In support of the push to teach for big ideas, a research study is presently underway. A part of it is on the professional development (PD) of primary school mathematics teachers. As part of the PD…

Sexton, Matt; Lamb, Janeen – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2023
We explore how relational trust was evidenced within the leadership activity of one mathematics leader using cultural-historical activity theory as a theoretical perspective. We use data from interview and observation sources to suggest that relational trust was a motive object of that mathematics leader's activity. Findings contribute knowledge…
