Article excerpt

Welcome to our first issue of 2012. We have noted that the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics is now listed as version 3. Take the time to visit the ACARA website and look at the Achievement Standards and Work Samples that have been added to the Curriculum. In this issue we continue our centre page series where tasks are linked to the Australian Curriculum and linked together in a series of lessons. Throughout the year, more of these linked lessons will be featured in each issue. Our guest Professor, Mike Askew, takes a close look at the four proficiencies in the Australian Curriculum and asks the question: "Is Understanding a proficiency?". You will need to read the article to find Askew's answer.

Our regular feature, "Teaching with Technology" continues on the theme of mobile technologies. Readers might remember reading part one in Issue 16 (4), late last year. If you didn't get a chance to read it last year or have forgotten what was said, we encourage you to read part 1 before reading part 2. We are sure you will be surprised at how technology may be meaningfully used to liven up mathematics lessons. The Australian Curriculum: Mathematics regularly uses the phrase "digital technologies"--we hope that this series of articles is really opening you up to the possibilities for integrating technology within mathematics lessons. Thank you Catherine and Maria.
