In 2005, the Secondary Numeracy Pilot Project (SNP) was introduced in a selection of secondary schools to:
- improve outcomes for students by raising their achievement in mathematics, particularly in number and algebra
- enhance the teaching of mathematics so that the needs of individual students are addressed
- enhance the mathematics communities of practice in each participating department
- improve collegiality in and between mathematics departments.
The SNP was expanded in 2006. Teachers have continued to make progress in developing their pedagogy, and students continue to show improved understanding of mathematics. The two chapters in this report have identified aspects of the SNP that need further development and make valuable suggestions for future directions in the project. They also tell a promising story of the progress being made to help students understand mathematics.
