    'The Classroom Instructional Framework in Early Number is research-based and provides a roadmap of not only the what, but the when and the how to teach all aspects of early number.

    Understanding the learning trajectories in the Framework has transformed the way teachers are differentiating for the range of students' early number knowledge in the classroom. Teachers are able to plan activities that are appropriate to where each student is, with the knowledge of where they need to go next. Learning is personalised, targeted, sequential, connected and develops strategies and understandings for success in solving number problems.'

    Teaching Number in the Classroom connects research with practice, containing assessment tasks and learning trajectories to guide the educator. The dimensions of Progressive Mathematization and Guiding Principles deliberately engender greater mathematical sophistication for the child and increase the practitioner’s effectiveness.
