Announcing SAARMSTE's 2021 Conference Plenary Discussants:
Professors Julie Sarama and Douglas H Clements from the United States of America.
The title of their delivery: Learning Trajectories as Disruptors of Early Math focuses on five surprising research findings about early mathematics, including children’s math potential, educators understanding of that potential, the need for interventions, and what we know about effective interventions using research-based learning trajectories. Learning trajectories can help disrupt some traditional approaches and provide research-based alternatives.
SAARMSTE's third plenary discussant
Dr Vijay Reddy, Distinguished Research Specialist at the Human Sciences Research Council of South Africa.
The title of dr Reddy;s delivery is: Mathematics and Science Achievement and Achievement Gaps in South Africa which focuses on three key research questions using the South African TIMSS data. These are:
- What are the mathematics and science achievements and achievement gaps in TIMSS 2019?
- How has mathematics and science achievement changed from the TIMSS 1995 to TIMSS 2019?
- What are the key home, school and classroom (especially curriculum) factors that influence mathematics and science achievement?
