Scaffolding Numeracy in the Middle Years Project Findings, Materials and Resources TASMANIA Department of Education 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 Prepared by the RMIT Research Team led by Professor Dianne Siemon RMIT University, October 2006.
2 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 (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 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.
