ab: Summary: The authors document their work in primary mathematics classrooms,
which transitioned from a (successful) project led by the research team
to teaching approaches and resources to â€˜ordinary classroom
teachersâ€™. Over some 15 weeks the learning that took place was
equally impressive with their subsequent, and larger class-sized,
groups of learners.
