Findings From the New Zealand Numeracy Development Projects 2005

A compendium of research findings from the 2005 Numeracy Development Project has been compiled and is available from this page.  The twelve papers in this compendium look at a variety of aspects of the NDP.   They are roughly grouped under the categories of student achievement, professional practice, and sustainability. 

Evaluations of the Secondary Numeracy Project (SNP) and Computer Algebraic Systems (CAS) pilot rojects are also available.

The full documents can be accessed by clicking on the images to the right.  To download individual chapters, use the links below.  

These documents are provided in PDF format.  To view them you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer.  If you need to get Adobe Acrobat Reader or update your current version please go to the Adobe site.  The Adobe Acrobat Reader software is FREE.  

A pamphlet (1.2 MB) summarising the findings of the research projects around the Numeracy Project was released alongside the compendium.
