Event Details

Students require geometric thinking in order to solve problems in everyday life (and in approximately one third of the NAPLAN Numeracy test!). Marj Horne will workshop geometry activities that support student learning of geometric reasoning, focusing on students in Years 3 - 8. She will also present evidence and research findings. The workshop includes morning tea on arrival as well as lunch. Registrations close at 4pm on Friday 10th November.


Adjunct Professor Marj Horne

We are very lucky to have Marj Horne presenting to us! A seasoned Mathematics teacher of all year levels (Early Childhood to University), she is now Adjunct Professor at ACU. Marj is currently working on the Reframing Mathematical Futures II project at RMIT. This project looks at the mathematical reasoning required for Algebraic, Geometrical and Statistical thinking in Years 7-10, building on the Scaffolding Numeracy in the Middle Years project, which focussed on multiplicative thinking. Marj Is particularly interested in the teaching and learning of algebra and geometry and is currently working on evidence-based learning frameworks for algebraic and geometric reasoning and corresponding teacher advice and activities for targeted teaching of algebra, geometry and measurement.
