Great expectations: Teaching mathematics in English to Indigenous language speaking students

Abstract [en]

Effective mathematics teaching for Indigenous language speaking students, currently the lowest achieving group in Australia, needs to be based on fair expectations of both students and teachers. Teacher interviews in a small Northern Territory school, conducted within an ethnographic study, showed that teachers’ decisions regarding level of mathematics curriculum taught were informed by students’ prior learning and by the language dynamic in their classrooms. The need and pressure to teach Standard Australian English also affected how mathematics was taught.
