ab: Summary: The change process with any educational innovation does not appear
to be something that can be shortened no matter how heightened our
awareness of the nature of the change or issues previously met and
dealt with in other implementations in other systems according to
educational change researchers and theorists. We can, however, benefit
from such knowledge of other implementations and the changes teachers
underwent by a more in-depth level of implementation in the usual
change timeframe. To this end, the change of the Queensland senior
secondary mathematics curriculum from a purely mathematical one
emphasising content, skills and process to one focusing on applications
and mathematical modelling is explored using the voices of teachers
reflecting on that change.
