Scaffolding Numeracy in the Middle YearsProject Findings, Materials and Resources

An Australian Research Council Linkage Project conducted by a team from RMIT University in collaboration with the Department of Education & Training Victoria and the Tasmanian Department of Education from July

2003 to June 2006.

Prepared by the RMIT Research Team led

by Professor Dianne Siemon

RMIT University, October 2006.

about this cd rom
About this CD-ROM

This CD-ROM contains a brief description of the project, a report on project findings, and copies of the

materials and resources used in conjunction with the Scaffolding Numeracy in the Middle Years Linkage

Project 2003-2006 (SNMY).

The report on project findings includes a rationale for the analyses used, a detailed data report, and a

summary of outcomes in relation to the research questions. It also includes the summary data provided to

research schools at the Cluster meetings in 2005 and 2006.

The materials include two validated Assessment Instruments, the elaborated and final version of the Learning

and Assessment Framework for Multiplicative Thinking, an Intervention Program for ‘At-Risk’ Students, a set of

targeted interventions in the form of Learning Plans for each level of the framework, and a number of school-

developed Authentic Tasks.

The resources include copies of the support materials used in professional development sessions and/or

school visits, papers and presentations not included elsewhere, and a bibliography.

The Research Team believes the information and material contained on the CD-ROM is a valuable and useful

resource to help scaffold the development of multiplicative thinking and thereby improve numeracy outcomes in

the middle years of schooling. However, as is true of all teaching and learning materials, teachers are advised

to carefully read the activities and tasks in relation to the Learning and Assessment Framework for

Multiplicative Thinking with a view to modifying or adapting the activities to suit the particular, identified learning

needs of their students.
