    Abstract

    Providing an appropriate education for exceptional students in mathematics is mandated in educational policy in Australasia (Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Agency (ACARA), 2010; Ministry of Education, 2009, 2011) but a challenge for teachers and schools. ‘Exceptional students’ refer to two distinct populations, namely those who are gifted in mathematics and have the capability to perform very highly compared to age peers and those who experience learning difficulties in mathematics and may underperform (Diezmann, Lowrie, Bicknell, Faragher, & Putt, 2004).

    Impact and interest:

    Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

    These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

    Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
