We have been working closely with A Learning Place A Teaching Place, building our teachers’ capacity and confidence in teaching maths- and we are seeing great results.

‘This is just awesome. Yes, I use it in my classroom but the professional development it has provided me is unbelievable. We have a school subscription, but if I was ever to change schools, I would definitely get a personal subscription!!!’

‘Your work is amazing and so easy to follow. Thank you!’ ‘I am an experienced teacher but am still learning so much about conceptual planning in mathematics through A Learning Place A Teaching Place website. I have subscribed personally for 4 years. The website is continually adding new resources. The teaching videos are wonderful to build your own depth of understanding.’

‘It is the best program I’ve seen! Children acquire DEEP understanding of mathematical concepts and the differentiation and problem solving is awesome! There are also investigations for assessment.’

‘Our teachers have said that their own maths has improved as a result of teaching this way!

Unsolicited comments from teachers on independent Facebook group ‘On Butterfly Wings’

‘It’s changed the way I teach maths, increased my understanding and provided my students with a deep understanding of concepts. When kids come to you and say ‘I used to hate fractions but actually they are quite fun,’ you know you are onto a winner.’

‘It’s so much more than a program! The professional learning alone is worth the money.' ‘If you don't want to spend the money initially there are a lot free resources that you could use as a start. I did this but ended up subscribing anyway.'

‘I saw so much growth in mathematical understanding and it really engaged students who previously ‘hated’ maths or thought they were bad at it.’

Kerry, Assistant Principal

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.

Suzanne Ross, Assistant Principal

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!!!

Harjit Birdee, Teacher

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.

Janelle Kirk, 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!!

Deanne Witchard, Assistant Principal

We have been using your 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.FHPS 1FHPS 2

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.

Cathy Wilton, Deputy Principal

The website is awesome. It is has everything parents, teachers and schools need to encourage thinking, reasoning young mathematicians. Thnx.
