New Zealand Numeracy Project

The New Zealand Numeracy Project website has lots of useful information, resources and teaching ideas:

The Online PD section in Professional Development is great for providing insight and information in teaching numeracy using this approach:

These are the teaching books, which are fantastic in giving a guide to teaching for all strategy and knowledge areas:

Book 1 – TheNumberFramework

Book 2 – TheDiagnosticInterview

Book 3 – GettingStarted

Book 4 – TeachingNumberKnowledge

Book 5 – Addition Subtraction Place Value

Book 6 – Multiplication Division

Book 7 – Fractions Decimals Percentages

Book 8 NumberSenseandAlgebraicThinking

Book 9 – MeasureGeoAlgStat

This document gives a useful overview of how the stages in NZ maths and Maths Recovery compare, and how they both fit in to the Highland Numeracy Progression:
