While curriculum frameworks ale major influences on learning, teachers know that children progress at different rates. Sometimes this is evident within a particular topic. and at other times more obvious across different topics. In this paper. we present the hops, steps, and jumps of numeracy learning of some 3000 Australian children. All were assessed using I Can Do Maths, and their achievements mapped to provide a detailed picture of how children hop, step and jump on their numeracy journey. This mapping provides teachers with infonnation about key hurdles to numeracy learning for Australian children.
