There is growing consensus that the process of planning mathematics units and lessons is as complex as teaching them, yet there is limited research on this. This thesis proposes a new framework for describing the way mathematics planning is conceptualised and a practical planning model to support teachers navigate the demands of mathematics learning and teaching. The findings also inform a set of planning recommendations designed to assist policymakers, school leaders, and teachers to determine approaches that support teachers to plan for student-centred mathematics learning and teaching in ways that ultimately improve student engagement and learning in mathematics.
