This week's article reports on the experience of two Grade 1–2 teachers at Debney Meadows Primary School, Victoria, who introduced mathematical concepts of chance to young students with English as a second language. Many of the children came from refugee backgrounds and had little or no formal school experience. Learning Objects provided by The Le@rning Federation (TLF) were integral to the work, which formed part of a joint project between the TLF and the Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.
