This session will provide an overview of the evidenced-based resources produced by the Reframing Mathematical Futures II (RMFII) project to support the teaching and learning of mathematical reasoning in years 5 to 10. It will briefly describe the SNMY project which developed similar evidenced-based resources to support a targeted teaching approach to multiplicative thinking then look at the tasks used to develop the learning progressions for algebraic, geometrical and statistical reasoning. Participants will have an opportunity to explore the formative assessment options and teaching advice for mathematical reasoning produced as a result of the project.
Accessing the webinar:This session use the Polycom system provided by the DET, and are accessible through a DET Polycom unit in school, or a H.323 teleconferencing system, or through mobile devices using the Polycom Real Presence app. Instructions, including for downloading the app will be sent to you prior to the event.
Who should attend: Levels 5 - 10 Teachers
Presenter: Di Siemon
Di Siemon is a Professor of Mathematics Education in the School of Education at RMIT University (Bundoora) where she is involved with the preparation of pre-service teachers and the supervision of higher degree students. Di is currently the Director of the Reframing Mathematical Futures project, which is working with 32 secondary schools nationally to develop an evidenced based teaching and learning framework for mathematical reasoning in the middle years. She is also actively involved in the professional development of practicing teachers, particularly in relation to the development of the ‘big ideas’ in number, the teaching and learning of mathematics in the middle years, and the use of rich assessment tasks to inform teaching. Di has directed a number of other large scale research projects including the Scaffolding Numeracy in the Middle Years Project (2003-2006), the Researching Numeracy Teaching Approaches in Primary Schools Project (2001-2003), and the Middle Years Numeracy Research Project (1999-2001). Di is a past President of the Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers and a life member of the Mathematical Association of Victoria.
