Learning by design: maths and science in the middle years

Shelley Dole, Tony Wright, Doug M. Clarke
Students should leave compulsory schooling with rich, connected conceptualisations in mathematics and science. Educators from universities in Queensland and Victoria are currently addressing this issue through a research project with middle years' teachers. The three-year project, involving seven government, Catholic and Independent schools in Queensland, is focused on one of the common core themes of mathematics and science: proportional reasoning.
