A university-school partnership model for strengthening mathematics education


The study reported in this presentation is a partnership story between an Australian university and a local primary school. The partnership was embedded in a first-year undergraduate teacher education course and in the junior classes of the primary school. It was explicitly focused on strengthening mathematics education across the two contexts. In this presentation the partnership model will be outlined and the challenges and opportunities of working together to enhance mathematics education across contexts will be highlighted. The strengths of the model will then be discussed in relation to preservice teacher education, teacher and lecturer professional learning, and strengthening mathematics education in primary schools.
