The Count Me In TOO research project was a 10 year study done by the Department of Education in South Wales, Australia. In the year 2000, the Ministry of Education offered the Count Me In Too (CMIT) pilot project to New Zealand schools as a junior school mathematics professional development project. The project involved 17 facilitators, 81 schools, 563 teachers, and approximately 10,000 students
The fundamental goal of the project was to develop the knowledge of junior class teachers to better understand students' number strategies, knowledge, and their stages of development from using less sophisticated to using more sophisticated strategies. Ultimately, it was hoped that this improvement in teacher knowledge would lead to an improvement in the number achievement of junior class students. A framework for number development, which incorporated clear developmental stages, was central to the project.
