Jones, K., Kershaw, L., & Sparrow, L. (1994). Number sense and computatoin in the classroom. Perth, Australia: Mathematics, Science & Technology Education Centre, Edith Cowan University.


Number sense and computation in the classroom is one of a series of monographs on issues in primary mathematics education. It has been written to support initiatives in the development of student-centred learning programs at Edith Cowan University - programs designed to accommodate current views on effective adult learning strategies, as wells as the development of professional and generic (key) competencies. Irrespective of the nature of individual learning programs, students and teachers working at undergraduate and postgraduate levels will find the series useful- either as a synthesis of currently available research findings and reference material, to identify potentially significant initiatives and developments in the area or as a classroom resource and guide.
