Mathematics Capability Clusters (All Levels)


When teachers are given time to immerse themselves in the right experiences, and school leaders are able to value, create and sustain the right conditions, then research can make the right impact and transform the way mathematics is taught.

This cost neutral, state department project has evolved by identifying and remediating the problems of practice usually associated with scaling up evidence based professional learning. Endorsements and national awards have further strengthened the regional unity and urgency that investing in
teachers is the right thing to do.

“In my 25 years of experience it is rare to find such a large –scale transfer of research knowledge into practice within mathematics education”. Professor Merrilyn Goos, 2017.

The project utilises a cluster model that promotes collective efficacy and teacher ownership through bringing together primary and secondary school teachers and leaders. Participants have time to design, try out, validate and plan the implementation of instructional tools and diagnostic cycles. The collaborative leverage from 28 high schools and 44 primary schools, is refining and aligning the right words and actions for highly effective teaching. This extensive network allows collegial reflection of both their own practices and analysis of their own student’s thinking.
“Your resources are the most practical and comprehensive set of supports for the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics that I have ever seen. Certainly, this type of support is well in advance of anything in Victoria,” Professor Peter Sullivan, 2017.
