O'Neill, J., & Day, L. (2016). A teacher's journey through multiplicative thinking with early secondary students. MAV (Mathematical Association of Victoria Annual Conference) 2016.
As part of the Reframing Mathematical Futures national project four WA secondary schools embarked on a journey to help students to become more able multiplicative thinkers, so that many areas of secondary mathematics would become more accessible to them. This involved targeted teaching within the regular mathematics classes. This paper is about the journey of one of these teachers.
