Greetings Fellow Mathematicians!
The Teaching Resources at A Learning Place A Teaching Place are all the comprehensive, sequential resources you need to develop deep relational understanding and metalanguage in your students, and yourself!
While these resources include teaching plans, videos, investigations and problem solving, the real purpose of A Learning Place A Teaching Place is Teacher Professional learning!
To help out, under the ‘Let’s Start‘ menu, we’ve created a series of guides offering advice on how to start using the resources.
Professional learning is intended to change understanding and pedagogy! The change process takes time – and can involve feelings of concern!
The Concerns-based Adoption Model of Change (CBAM) can help us to navigate this process!
The resources are complete. However, new resources are added often!

We can't live without it. Everything is going very well. We are beginning a lot of mentoring around mathematics which is great. A lot of new and beginning teachers. The problem we are finding is that teachers don't understand conceptual development and feel the need to push the kids through content they don't understand.

We have been teaching the Year 5 conversion of length... WOW the links are amazing... never taught this well until now... you should see our kids- they understand it!!! YEAH!!!
Suzanne Ross, Assistant Principal
I have been using your website for over a year now and the students have raved about what they can do and the deep understanding they have now got. Other teachers have noticed as well.
Harjit Birdee, Teacher
We are small schools but very complicated in terms of mathematics delivery. For instance, I will officially be teaching years 4/5/6 but I know there are some children still operating at Year 2 level. Very complex in terms of planning and delivery and your site is so amazing in terms of differentiation and resourcing. Let alone being research based. You are ticking all the boxes in my past and present experience!!!!
I am an experienced and dedicated teacher and am seriously impressed!!
Janelle Kirk, Teacher
We have been using your new website and we LOVE it. So easy to navigate ... thank you!

Outstanding Student Achievement Using A Learning Place A Teaching Place!
These graphs, from My School website, show the results and improvement Fairfield Heights PS, who have been focusing their Mathematics teaching and learning using A Learning Place A Teaching Place for 4 years, changing the way they teach and understand maths. So good are their results, they were featured on SBS World News on 5 March 2015.
I just wanted to take the time to thank you for all the work and effort that has obviously gone into 'A Learning Place'. It's an incredible resource and something I was more than happy to subscribe to.
I am a Year 1 teacher at a school in Brisbane QLD. This year our school decided to no longer teach from a text book, however we haven't had the kind of planning that you have done to underpin/support what we are doing in the classroom. I personally have found this incredibly frustrating as I come from a specialist background and my planning for that subject was impeccable.
What I am so super excited about is that you have done EXACTLY what I envision for our maths program.
Cherie Meale, Classroom Teacher
The website is awesome. It is has everything parents, teachers and schools
need to encourage thinking, reasoning young mathematicians. Thnx.
