Math Mastery Series
While adopting the concept of a scripted lesson made famous by Engelmann and the University of Oregon, the Farkota DI model has modernised the delivery process, and streamlined the script concept in a manner that strikes a balance between teacher-directed and student-directed learning. Recognising that some skills are better acquired through one approach and some through the other, the MMS consists of daily lessons composed of strands each starting at base level where foundations are laid. These strands proceed to build on the foundations moving through the particular concepts involved whilst all the time inter-relating with the other strands being run concurrently.
MMS programs (JEMM, JEMM+ and EMM) serve as daily diagnostic tools incorporating daily assessment as an integral part of the learning process.

These programs:
  • map student progress
  • identify precisely where and when students experience difficulty
  • contain inbuilt assessment and correction procedures
  • instil fluency and automaticity in fundamental math skills

About the Author

Dr Rhonda Farkota, formerly a Senior Research Fellow at the Australian Council for Educational Research (1998-2018), has long been recognised as one of Australia’s foremost experts in Direct Instruction (DI). Her doctoral research into DI, mathematics and self-efficacy was described by Professor DH Schunk, Dean of Education, University of North Carolina, as an outstanding thesis on a topic of great theoretical and applied significance. Before joining ACER in 1998, she was a Teacher and Curriculum Advisor, and sat on the Curriculum Committees of both the Education Department and the Catholic Education Office. In 2008 she was specially seconded as Assistant Director of Australia’s National Assessment Program (NAPLAN™). Dr Farkota received the 2013 Mona Tobias Award in recognition of her significant contribution to evidence-based practice in education.
