The everyday language of mathematics: Investigating spatial frames of reference in Iwaidja
RMIT University, Australia.

Abstract [en]

A project in a remote Indigenous community in the Northern Territory of Australia is examining the everyday spatial language of the students and in particular their preferred frames of reference. This report on the early stages of the project finds that nationwide testing ignores the linguistic context of these students. Teachers have little curriculum support in teaching mathematics to Indigenous Language Speaking students. Using the tools and analyses of cognitive linguistics, this project will describe the spatial frames of reference of Iwaidja, an Indigenous language of northern Australia, and then apply the findings in an action research project in the Early Years classroom at the school in this remote community.
