TEACHING MATHEMATICS

2014

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject draws on concepts from the Australian Curriculum for Mathematics, including Content strands - Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geomentry, Statistics and Probability, and Proficiency strands - Understanding, Fluency, Problem Solving and Reasoning. Students will explore the nature of mathematics, the structure of the mathematics curriculum, the attributes of effective mathematics teaching, and strategies to engage, support and assess children's learning. Students will be given the opportunity to broaden their quantitative literacy through developing their knowledge and confidence with basic mathematical and analytical concepts and operations required for problem solving and investigation, real world applications, and for effective teaching of mathematics. Students will examine how such approaches contribute to their own learning, and the implications for learners in schools.
