Mathematics is conceptually based, not skills based. Each concept has natural relationships to other concepts.

Children only develop deep understanding of mathematical concepts and the relationships between concepts, through explicit teaching and investigation guided by teachers with deep understanding of the concepts and relationships developed through quality professional development.
At A Learning Place A Teaching Place, you will find professional learning resources that will deepen your understanding, empowering you to develop and enhance your students’ mathematical understanding. Browse now and discover our year-specific Scope and Sequences, and concept-specific Concept Sequences, current Mathematics and Pedagogical research, with related professional learning resources including videos, and agenda and notes to lead a professional development session. The grade Scope and Sequences and Concept Sequences explicitly cover the content descriptions and outcomes of the Australian Curriculum and NSW Mathematics Syllabuses for each grade and concept, and provide teachers with explicit relationships to other concepts.
The research and evidence-based spiralling curriculum within the grade Scope and Sequences, and Concept Sequences, and related professional learning resources accessed via these links, enrich the professional development of primary school teachers to provide children with the best opportunity to develop deep understanding of mathematical concepts and the relationships between concepts.

Number and Algebra Professional Learning
Number and Algebra are investigated together. As children investigate number concepts, they are investigating properties and relationships.
Statistics and Probability Professional Learning
Statistics and Probability (Chance and Data) are intrinsically linked - without information (data) we cannot identify the chance of an event occurring. Attempting to identify the chance of an event occurring without information may lead to inappropriate and unnecessary risk.Through the investigation of Statistics and Probability, children develop their understanding and capacity to assess risk.
Measurement and Geometry Professional Learning
Measurement and Geometry are investigated together. Children investigate features and properties of two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects, then apply of their understanding of these features and properties to measure their length, area, volume and capacity and mass.
