Abstract: This intervention project was a special focus project of CRPP. This project focused on professional development of primary and secondary schools to enhance the teachers' pedagogy of mathematics in the areas of designing of mathematical learning tasks and of lessons that emphasize understanding, reasoning and communication in teachers' classrooms. The professional development (PD) involved experts working with teachers for a period of two years, during which the experts involved teachers in crafting mathematical learning tasks and designing mathematics lessons that aim to teach for understanding. Throughout the PD teachers worked with fellow teachers, as part of a community of learners, to advance their knowledge and skills in their classroom practice. The project showcased a model of PD, the blended approach, which teachers certainly attested was a preferred model of teacher learning. The deliverables of the project, in particular the three professional books, have been whole heartedly welcomed by mathematics teachers in Singapore schools.
