Numeracy

The Catholic Education SA Numeracy Team provides support to schools through a range of professional learning models including projects, networks and school based projects and networks. All professional learning is grounded in contemporary learning theories with research forming the basis of the team’s work with teachers and schools.

Objectives for Professional Learning

The professional learning aims to support teachers to:

  • Deepen their mathematical understanding.
  • Reflect on current teaching and learning strategies in mathematics education, as well as in broader contexts, in order to support and challenge students’ mathematical/numeracy development.
  • Explore contemporary research, trends and national initiatives.
  • Develop and implement rich mathematical/numeracy programmes.
  • Explore and implement the Australian Curriculum.
  • Develop ICT skills in mathematics.

Professional learning models

Projects
Three 3 year action research based projects – Early Years (R-2), Primary Years (3-5) and Middle Years (6-9). These projects provide an action research framework to assist teachers to implement effective teaching and learning strategies that will support all students towards successful mathematical and numeracy outcomes.
  • Networks to support Primary and Secondary teachers who hold leadership roles in mathematics and/or numeracy.
  • Mathematics course of 1 ½ years for teachers to expand their personal mathematical knowledge.
  • Workshops to help school leaders in the implementation of the Australian Curriculum.

Other Professional Learning

NAPLAN and Assessment.
Early Years Observation Assessment Tool.
Inquiry in mathematics and numeracy.
Early Years inquiry project (numeracy and literacy).
Whole school professional learning.

    The Catholic Education Office Numeracy Team has developed a resource titled Engaging Young Children in Number and Measurement: Developing Mathematical Understandings, to assist educators teaching mathematics, to understand and engage more deeply with the mathematical thinking of young children.

    The frameworks and analysis of children’s thinking documented in this book are based on research undertaken by teachers in their classroom.

    This book provides a theoretical and reflective component, enabling educators to align their teaching to theories of learning in mathematics and the Australian Curriculum in the early years.

    At the end of each section, a framework for developing mathematical understandings is suggested. The framework will support educators to recognise and map the mathematical thinking of young children. The suggested everyday learning tasks will enable children to further explore their thinking using activities that are engaging and connected to real-life situations.

    This book has been provided to all Catholic schools; however, if you wish to purchase your own copy/copies, please register your interest on this site.

    Cost per book is $40.00 (Including GST).

    Registration Enquiries: adeline.mcloughlin@cesa.catholic.edu.au

    Also available for purchase, is the Early Years Numeracy Observation Assessment book.

    The Early Years Numeracy Observation Assessment book has been developed by the Catholic Education Office Numeracy Team, with the objective to provide early years teachers with ways of identifying students’ knowledge in mathematics as they begin school, and during the early years of schooling. This assessment is based on research carried out by the sector as well as from the work of other researchers in the field. It focuses on how children develop strategies in number – sorting, classifying, counting, calculating and applying number when measuring.

    If you wish to purchase a copy of this book, please register your interest on this site.

    Cost per book is $50.00 (Including GST).

    Literacy and Numeracy R-9 Network


    Last day to register: Thursday 14 February 2019

    NETWORK FOCUS

    The Living Learning Leading Framework aspires for learners to be thriving people, capable learners, leaders for the world God desires. The Literacy and Numeracy R-9 network will support school leaders and teachers to build onto school based strategic plans, curriculum reform and innovation strategies to address local school needs and achieve improved outcomes in literacy and numeracy.

    This Network will focus on:

    • the process of leading improvement in schools
    • building the capacity of pedagogical leader(s) to lead professional learning in literacy and/or numeracy
    • exploring contemporary research and the implementation of evidence based strategies that positively impact on the teaching and learning of these core areas
    • building understanding of the general capabilities as a vehicle for adding depth and richness to learning
