The overall intention of this project is to support innovation and reform in mathematics teaching in participating school communities, including low SES and remote school communities,.

The aims are to:

  1. Evaluate the effectiveness of a systematic implementation of the Extending Mathematical Understanding intervention programs (both early-years and middle-years) in primary and secondary schools in order to provide new data on the short-term and longitudinal effectiveness of mathematics intervention approaches;
  2. Measure the growth in mathematics growth points for all students in participating schools in order to compare the longitudinal progress of students and the impact of professional learning and mathematics interventions

Research questions:

  1. What is the impact of the Extending Mathematical Understanding program for children, Specialist Teachers, parents and teachers?
