Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject develops a firm grounding in the threshold knowledge required, and the positive disposition necessary for teaching primary school mathematics. The focus is on student skill development in the key areas of number and algebra. As part of this subject PSTs will reflect on prior mathematical experience, examine current research and curriculum documents, learn how to develop primary classrooms as mathematical communities, and how to develop mathematical logic, reasoning, conjecture, problem solving and invention.
