Description

Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching Girls in Grades K–5 highlights the gender achievement gap in mathematics and offers readers practical steps to eliminate inequality in the critical early years of schooling. Specifically, F–5 mathematics educators will examine how teachers’ and parents’ own confidence as mathematics learners influences how girls view their ability to learn and retain mathematics knowledge. Authors Thomasenia Lott Adams, Taylar B. Wenzel, Kristopher J. Childs and Samantha R. Neff offer recommendations to support the teaching and learning of mathematics for girls in the classroom, in the home and across the network to ensure their confidence and achievement continue throughout secondary school and into university and careers.


Years F–5 teachers, coaches, and school and network administrators will:



  • address the mathematics and gender stereotypes affecting girls’ education

  • eliminate gender bias through effective primary school mathematics instruction

  • learn how to foster a safe learning environment that allows girls to take risks when learning mathematics

  • apply the tasks, questioning and evidence (TQE) process to successfully plan and implement inclusive lessons that engage all students

  • watch short, engaging videos of girls engaging meaningfully in mathematics learning.
