Research shows that a new computerised learning system can lead to a 20-month gain in maths skills in six months and improve pupils' behaviour.
Based on research into the thinking processes of young children, here are suggestions for teaching the subject of random generators, such as coins, dice, and spinners.
With the focus in mathematics teaching moving away from the mastery of skills and facts towards the understanding and making sense of mathematics, it is not always appropriate to "test" knowledge at the end of a unit of work and then apply remedial assistance. By applying a means of intervening in a learning cycle, teachers can maximise the way in which knowledge and knowing are being formed.
There is a danger that by trying to support students' learning teachers may reduce the learning demands on students by doing the thinking and processing for them.
Not all teachers are comfortable with using the technique of problem solving, which is an attempt to find the answer to a problem when the method of solution is not known. This research shows how problem solving can be used in secondary school mathematics classes.
Research into the use of Beginning School Mathematics shows that the resource must be used flexibly and creatively in order to achieve the best mathematics learning amongst junior school children.
The Australian National Statement on Mathematics has proposed that "all people need to develop a good sense of number". What is this number sense, which can be elusive yet empowering?
