KEYNOTE ADDRESS | Let’s Talk About It. Secrets of Schools Successful in Mathematics by Rosemary Callingham (Anita Chin 2nd Annual Conference ‘Assessment: It’s a Whole-School Approach’, Sydney, 2018)

Year Level
K (Foundation), Y1, Y2, Y3, Y4, Y5, Y6 Synopsis
What are the characteristics of schools where students do well in mathematics? What strategies do teachers use to assess students’ progress and engage them in meaningful mathematical learning? Drawing on several recent research studies, this presentation will focus on what schools do to support mathematics learning and how they achieve their goals.Presenter: Adjunct Associate Professor Rosemary Callingham, University of Tasmania.
As a classroom teacher and a university lecturer, Rosemary  aimed to inspire her students through interesting and innovative activities, such as collecting data from a local cemetery. She became particularly interested in the assessment of mathematics and statistics, and this became a theme in her research career. She continues this interest today as a consultant and Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Tasmania, working on national projects with teachers and schools. More about Rosemary can be found on her website

Resource Type

Year Level
K (Foundation) Tips for making your equipment classroom-friendly

  • Contents: 77 cards with 7 different representations of the numbers 0 to 10.
  • How to make one box of cards:
    (A) You will need 7 different coloured sheets of A4 card, 100 GSM.
    (B) Photocopy each representation from Anita’s printable Number Representation Cards 0 to 10 onto it’s own sheet of A4 coloured card to allow students to “sort all the cards by colour”.  Eg number names (p9) on yellow; numerals (p8) on white; five-frames (p6) on orange; ten-frames (p7) on purple; dice dot patterns (p2) on blue; pairwise dot arrangement (p3) on green; random dot arrangement (p4) on red.
    (C) Cut/guillotine each page of 11 cards
    (D) Place the same coloured sticky dot on the back of each card and one on the bottom of the container.
    (E) Place cards in the box, no laminating required.
  • How used: One container per pair of students or per individual for intervention.
  • How packaged: To uniquely identify each container of cards I place a coloured sticky dot (eg all cards in container 1 have a blue dot on the back of each card). Each different container has cards with a different coloured dot (eg all cards in container 2 have a red dot on the back of each card). Each set of cards is stored in a Fischer clear, hinge-lid, small 1 compartment, shallow storage container (18.5 x 11.5 x 3.2) cm.
  • How stored: Class kit of 8 containers of cards stacked and packed on a designated maths shelf in the classroom.

Have you ever been shown the STRUCTURE of the NSW Mathematics K-6 Syllabus? Here’s how to simply see the ‘big ideas’ in the document for each substrand for each grade, rather than seeing pages and pages of endless content to teach.Each page is organised using the following structure:

  • The Australian Curriculum CONTENT DESCRIPTIONS (and the code which I call the ‘number plates’) are flush to the left of the page. I like to think of these as the ‘big ideas’.
  • The first level of indentation, starting with a dot point, is the ‘KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS’ Ie how to teach the ‘big ideas’.
  • The second level of indentation, starting with an arrow, is the ‘WORKING MATHEMATICALLY processes Ie. what our classrooms look, sound and feel like.
  • The third level of indentation, starting with a dash, is the MENTAL STRATEGIES with examples of written recordings shown
  • The LANGUAGE section of each substrand K-6 includes a developmentally sequenced word list. Words appearing for the first time in the substrand are listed in bold type.
