• #### Children as data detectives ﻿

(INTO [Irish National Teachers Organisation], 2012)
Transforming the teaching of data Is your experience of teaching data less than exciting? Do you think there is more to teaching data than making bar charts of children’s favourite colours? And pictograms of modes of ...
• #### Compairing means ﻿

(INTO [Irish National Teachers Organisation], 2012)
A classroom mathematical exploration of the mean In this article, we outline a series of explorations with data, spanning between 3 and 5 lessons, to develop conceptual understanding of the mean. These explorations were ...

• #### Geometric growing patterns: what’s the rule? ﻿

(AAMT [Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers], 2015)
We explore several examples of the way in which to use geometrical growing patterns. Examples are situated within interesting contexts to elicit algebraic generalisations by working through a five-phase analysis process.
• #### Getting the balance right: the equals sign ﻿

(INTO [Irish National Teacher's Organisation], 2011)
Much of the number work carried out in primary classrooms contains elements of algebraic reasoning. In fact, equals sign work in junior and senior infants underpins much of the algebraic reasoning used in later years. In ...
