Moving towards mathematics mastery by @primaryreflect  7 views

"In September we introduced the new curriculum across all subjects and all of our school. This was scaffolding using the Chris Quigley's Essentials materials, during the previous year we had used a numeracy curriculum created by teachers within the Deal Learning Alliance, which a great source and piece of collaborative work in its own right, held too many links back to APP statement and old national curriculum levels. As as school we were finding that the DLA maths document did not provide the scaffold for the raised expectations in mathematics primary curriculum, furthermore, the deeper into the curriculum we delved, the harder it seemed to make the teaching, learning and assessment work efficiently."

Selfconcepts of ability in maths and reading predict later attainment  12 views

"Educational and developmental psychologists have tried to understand how skills and motivation are linked to academic achievement. While research supports ties between individuals' concepts of their abilities and their achievement, we lack a complete picture of how these relations develop from childhood to adolescence. A new longitudinal study looked at how youths' selfconcepts are linked to their actual academic achievement in maths and reading from middle childhood to adolescence. The study found that students' selfconcepts of their abilities in these two academic domains play an important role in motivating their achievements over time and across levels of achievement."

If Technology Fails, Use Basic Math Skills  Count Manually!! by @johnkaiser13  15 views

"Technology has inevitably been inserted to nearly all aspects of our lives today. First and foremost, the use of computerised cash registers have been around for a few decades now. Trying to remember cash registers which operated without a digital display might be nearly impossible. The generation which might be able to do so has been replaced with a new generation who depend on technology to a large degree. The dependence on new technology is starting to 'show signs' of the effect of converting from our analogue counterparts. Below is an example that I recently experienced the effect of technology in a transaction at a doughnut shop."

Study finds cash and coins help engage primary maths students  9 views

"Primary school students are more likely to understand and engage with maths if classes use real money and reallife projects, according to a Western Sydney University pilot study.
The findings come as Australian students lag behind other countries in maths, with Year 4 students dropping from 18th to 28th out of 49 countries in year 4 maths in the latest Trends in International Mathematics and Science study."
