National numeracy review report

30 Jul 2008
Description

Undertaken by a panel of experts led by Professor Gordon Stanley, this review was established to inform best practice for teaching numeracy and mathematics. The report makes 15 recommendations with a focus on:

• the need for early, systematic teaching of numeracy and mathematics that includes assessment activities to ensure that all students have the foundational skills to progress through a developmental continuum; and
• increasing resources for teachers in terms of professional development and pre-service teacher education to address the identified shortfalls in both mathematics content knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge to ensure quality teaching of numeracy and mathematics across the curriculum.
