Teacher: There are nine counters under this card and eight counters under this one. How many counters are there altogether?

Student: 17

Teacher: How did you work that out?

Student: I know that nine plus nine is 18 and one less, so 17.

Students

Teacher knowledge and practices are the most immediate and most significant outcomes of any professional development effort. They also are the primary factor influencing the relationship between professional development and improvements in student learning.

You observe the following equation in Jane’s work: re-awakening.

Is she correct?

What is the possible reasoning behind her answer?

What, if any, is the key understanding she needs to develop to solve this problem?

• You observe the following equation in Jane’s work: re-awakening.

• What, if any, is the key understanding she needs to develop to solve this problem?

Correct 18% (8)

• It’s asking “how many halves are there in 1 1/2?”

• The question is asking “if 1 1/2 is a half what is the whole?”

“Maths is no longer one of the things that would be missed if there was a visiting production or things like that.”

Schools if there was a visiting production or things like that.”

Schools will not not improve unless the administrators and teachers within them improve. But organizational and systemic changes are usually required to accommodate and facilitate these individual improvements.

Guskey, 2000, p.37

New programs or innovations that are implemented well eventually are regarded as a natural part of practitioners’ repertoire of professional skills.

As workplaces become more focused on workplace efficiency and quality, the importance of numeracy skills and knowledge is growing, as they have been shown to be a key factor in workplace success.

Hi Andrew! I am a Mathematics Coach at *** Elementary School in Los Angeles, California and I am a huge fan of your website and curriculum! I have used many, many of the lessons, activities and assessments. However, I was wondering:

1. are there other teachers in the U.S. using nz maths? and 2. is there any way for me to order a copy of the student and teacher texts that you use?

I would very much appreciate your response.

Thanks very much,

70% of site usage from overseas in Los Angeles, California and I am a huge fan of your website and curriculum! I have used many, many of the lessons, activities and assessments. However, I was wondering:

40% of site usage relates to Numeracy material

Approximately 50,000 unique visitors per month

Very roughly 10,000 international visitors to the Numeracy material per month

Vince Wright: Numeracy Working Group Meeting (Feb 2000) during the previous 10 years

The years 2000 to 2005 were marked as those of the “Number Framework”. This was an attempt to clarify the early developmental stages of students’ learning in number. Much effort was made to ground the framework on research. The framework became the lynchpin for the professional development of teachers in mathematics.

Experience now shows… during the previous 10 years

…that the framework was very detailed and cumbersome. Most teachers found it threatening and confusing. It neither inspired them or gave them confidence. In terms of student performance it was an abject failure.

…that the framework was very detailed and cumbersome. Most teachers found it threatening and confusing. It neither inspired them or gave them confidence. In terms of student performance it was an abject failure.

or

…that the framework captured the complexity of students’ development in a simple way. It was a powerful synthesis of the research at that time. Teachers were able to see the relevance of it in their classroom practice. Experience has shown the development of a number framework was the single most important factor in New Zealand’s improved achievement in mathematics.
