Australian Mathematics Teacher, v69 n3 p4-9 2013

Reflection, or consciously thinking about our experiences, is the key to powerful learning. Reflection allows us to analyse our experiences, make informed changes based on our mistakes, maintain successful practices, and build upon or modify our past understandings based on new and emerging knowledge. This paper describes the author's journey through education in Victoria and provides insights into the elements she has identified as integral to successful mathematics education as she launches into the future.
