Curriculum Support


One click gives two pages. The most compact version of everything Mathematics Centre stands for. This is Page 1.
Page 2, the Working Mathematically process as described by mathematicians. Now you know what it means to be working like a mathematician.
A one page flow chart to help you create your own curriculum with learning to work like a mathematician as its core purpose.


Another scaffold to support building your own Working Mathematically curriculum.
Swedish version of Working Mathematically. Page 1 includes contacts for support in Sweden.
Easy find reference page of links to key areas of Mathematics Centre.

A mathematician's work begins with an interesting problem. These teaching craft features are used to fascinate, captivate and absorb students. Run your own Discussion Lessons as in-house PD then debrief together around this document.

Task Centre Support


Simply stated focus, professional development, web site back up, resources support.
Powerful 69 page manual to support the use of Tasks. Every main section provides links to the relevant part of Mathematics Centre so the support goes way beyond the printed pages.
Every task coded by appropriate year level and content strands to which it relates. Four pages.


Outline of structure and content of a one day Task Centre workshop, usually arranged as a discounted package with 100 tasks.
Page 1 of 2 to evaluate the Task Centre workshop day. Both pages are included in the PDF to make easy to print back to back if required.
A solid day working like a mathematician deserves recognition with a certificate recording the professional aspects of the day.


One way to ensure some record gathering for assessment when students are working on tasks.
Student self assessment of their problem solving. Works well in conjunction with the teacher page.
One school's approach to a rubic model of assessment for a task that becomes a project.


Another school's approach to rubric assessment. Find out more about assessment
