What number-related competences do grade one students need to ensure later success and avoid later failure? We address this question by summarising recent work on the development of an eight component framework, which we call foundational number sense (FoNS), in which those necessary learning outcomes are categorised. We then present summaries of three case study evaluations of the FoNS framework. Each case study, which focused on the teaching of a different mathematical topic, was undertaken in two different European grade one classrooms. Analyses confirm the sensitivity of the FoNS framework to both cultural and mathematical context and indicate its potential as a powerful tool for both cross cultural research and teacher education practices.
