    Abstract

    This investigation examines the role of the home supervisor (a parent) in the development of children's numeracy in a distance education learning environment The case study explores the relationship between home and school partnerships as young students make sense of mathematics outside of a 'more traditional' classroom context The learning materials provided by the school were more likely to be used in flexible and dynamic ways if the supervisor initiated the (re)construction of learning activities Although the home supervisor had the most dramatic influence on the teaching and learning processes being implemented to support young student's numeracy development, it is argued that new advances in technology may provide opportunities for classroom teachers to become more involved in the learning process
