Abstract: This project aimed to enhance the numeracy performance of low-achieving Indigenous students in terms of their basic mathematics competencies. Teachers and teacher aides involved in the project created a rich learning environment which included the use of targeted technology and focused learning activities to improve the automaticity of students' component academic skills in numeracy. The project continued the development of a research-based intervention program and built on successes already experienced with Indigenous students in Northern New South Wales and the Northern Territory. The schools involved were Minimbah Primary School in Armidale, New South Wales and Mirriwinni Gardens Aboriginal Academy via Kempsey, New South Wales.
