New secondary mathematics resources to support Year 7 and 8 teachers

Ochre Education is working in partnership with The National Catholic Education Commission (NCEC) and collaboratively with around 40 expert secondary mathematics teachers to develop comprehensive curriculum resources for Years 7 and 8 Mathematics – a full year’s worth of lessons, and targeted resources to support intervention. Resources will initially be mapped to the Australian Curriculum 9.0, and the Victorian Curriculum 2.0. All lessons embed high-impact, evidence-based teaching practices and are able to be adapted by teachers to suit their students’ needs. Term 1 resources are being made available in a phased release from 22 January to 31 January 2024.

What resources are available?

  • Curriculum maps to support schools’ planning
  • Detailed adaptable and editable classroom materials for Term 1 embedding evidence-based teaching practices. These include for each lesson of the term:
    • Daily teacher presentation slides
    • A unit student booklet
    • Daily Review slides
    • Daily Reteach slides to support reteach of core concepts or skills as required
  • Sample student assessments
  • Intervention supports for students who have gaps in foundational numeracy skills:
    • Screeners
    • A precedence diagram to indicate relevant prior units of work
    • Specialised Daily Review materials
  • Professional learning resources including guides and videos about how to get the most out of the resources, evidence-based pedagogy and maths topics.

Term 1 resources are available in a phased release from 22 January to 31 January.

The remainder of the year’s resources will be made available in advance of each school term.
