    Abstract

    A 3-year longitudinal study integrates a pedagogical approach focused on patterns and structural relationships in mathematics to science learning through novel experiences in data modelling and problem solving. Students are engaged in an innovative program, usually withdrawn in small groups and taught by the research team in collaboration with the teacher on a weekly basis for a 2-year period. The study tracks three cohorts of students, initially involved in a related study1 when in Kindergarten, through to Grades 2, 3 and 4. In addition, two new cohorts of mathematically able students are being tracked from Kindergarten to Grade 2.
