Mathematics in the Learning Neighbourhoods

This project investigated strategies for effective teaching of Mathematics in a Learning Neighbourhood. Hands-on tasks, Transdisciplinary Units and Investigative Projects were developed and delivered to Year 8 students. Through the trial, student engagement in their Mathematics was found to improve and students developed skills in both working independently and collaboratively. The units were designed to be used in the new flexible learning spaces, with students being more self-directed, working at their own pace.
