1 Department of Education Scaffolding Numeracy in the Middle Years Project Findings, Materials and ResourcesAn 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 July2003 to June 2006.Prepared by the RMIT Research Team ledby Professor Dianne SiemonRMIT University, October 2006.TASMANIADepartment of Education
2 About this CD-ROMThis CD-ROM contains a brief description of the project, a report on project findings, and copies of thematerials and resources used in conjunction with the Scaffolding Numeracy in the Middle Years LinkageProject (SNMY).The report on project findings includes a rationale for the analyses used, a detailed data report, and asummary of outcomes in relation to the research questions. It also includes the summary data provided toresearch schools at the Cluster meetings in 2005 and 2006.The materials include two validated Assessment Instruments, the elaborated and final version of the Learningand Assessment Framework for Multiplicative Thinking, an Intervention Program for ‘At-Risk’ Students, a set oftargeted 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/orschool 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 usefulresource to help scaffold the development of multiplicative thinking and thereby improve numeracy outcomes inthe middle years of schooling. However, as is true of all teaching and learning materials, teachers are advisedto carefully read the activities and tasks in relation to the Learning and Assessment Framework forMultiplicative Thinking with a view to modifying or adapting the activities to suit the particular, identified learningneeds of their students.
