Teaching Indigenous Mathematics Education (TIME)


Project dates: 01/01/2010 - 31/12/2012

This three-year project was funded by the Queensland Department of Education and Training (DET), through the Division of Indigenous Education and Training Futures Indigenous Schooling Support Unit, Central and Southern Queensland. The project developed our flagship mathematics train-the-trainer PD approach, called YuMi Deadly Maths or YDM, to improve mathematics teaching and enhance learning from Prep (Foundation) to Year 9. YDM now underpins all YDC projects.

The TIME project focused on Years Prep to 3 in 2010, Years 4 to 7 in 2011 and Years 7 to 9 in 2012, covering all mathematics strands of the Australian Curriculum: Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. In all, over 100 Queensland schools participated in the project.
