UQ School of Education Winter Research Project Description

Project title: 

Hands-on early number sense: Embodiment in subitizing, composition, and counting

 

Project duration:

4 weeks (Winter program duration)

30-36 hrs/week

Starting 13 July, 2020

 

Description:

Scholars will investigate young children’s embodied number sense by qualitatively analysing video data of young children interacting with an early number sense app. General themes focus on subitizing, composition, and counting, and relationships among these constructs and their associated strategies and gestures. Scholars may also contribute to developing emergent sub-themes.

 

Expected outcomes and deliverables:

Scholars will gain skills related to video data analysis, observation/teacher noticing, and research collaboration, as well as knowledge of early number sense. Scholars will contribute to one or more presentations and/or publications for scholarly and/or practitioner audiences.

 

Suitable for:

This project is most suitable for UQ enrolled students with a background and/or interest in primary or early education, mathematics learning, and/or qualitative analysis of video data. Genuine curiosity required.
