The reasoning drawer is based on In Teachers’ Hands – Reasoning, a project of the Mathematical Association of Victoria in 2011. Writers for this project were Prof. Peter Sullivan and Prof. Mike Askew, Faculty of Education, Monash University, Dr Leicha Bragg, School of Education, Deakin University, Ms Sue Fine, Mathematics Consultant, A/Prof. Marj Horne, School of Education, Australian Catholic University, and Prof. Dianne Siemon, School of Education, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. They were assisted by A/Prof. Judith Mousley, School of Education, Deakin University, Ms Sharyn Livy, Mathematical Association of Victoria, and many other mathematics educators who provided expert advice and feedback.
This highly expert team brought together their extensive experience in the field to create the ideas incorporated in the Reasoning drawer.
A/Prof. Judith Mousley was responsible for the conceptual design of the drawer and wrote most of the material.
