In Maths/Numeracy students explore current approaches and strategies for primary level mathematics. By reflecting on prior mathematical experiences, examining current research and curriculum documents, students learn how to develop primary classrooms as mathematical communities, and how to develop mathematical logic, reasoning, conjecture, problem solving and invention. Students participate in structured experiences designed to expand their personal understanding and confidence in mathematics.
