Bobis, Janette et al., Numeracy and beyond. Vol. 1 and 2. , (ISBN 1-86487-386-8). 265-272 (2001).
This study characterises secondary teachers$\rq$ mathematical beliefs and instructional practices regarding the teaching and learning of mathematics thematically. The focus of the study is the 1996 Years 9 and 10 Standard courses operating in high schools across New South Wales. In general, teachers$\rq$ beliefs revealed a slight alignment to the goals of the thematic component of the course. However, teachers$\rq$ espoused instructional practices did not reflect the teaching approach necessary to appropriately enact the mathematics curriculum mandating the thematic teaching approach.
