This teacher resource describes a numeracy intervention strategy, Getting Ready in Numeracy (GRIN). Tutors in Victoria worked with small groups to improve numeracy outcomes for students who had been identified as falling behind in mathematics. The resource describes the method used for primary and secondary students and also comments on the successful use of the program with adult Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students transitioning to tertiary study. Outcomes included improved results in mathematics assessments such as the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) On Demand test. The resource discusses the lessons learned, outlines the research informing the program and provides references and links to relevant readings.
