Introduces students to the major concepts in the teaching of mathematics for K-6. Lectures will present core understandings that will be developed through experiential learning through workshops. Emphasis will be placed upon the study of the special methodologies associated with the teaching of the content of the NSW K-6 Mathematics Syllabus.
Graduates should adequately and confidently numerate, and possess knowledge and understanding of numeracy as a fundamental component of learning, performance, discourse and critique.
Therefore students in this subject should be able to:
describe relevant mathematical concepts and skills from the K-6 Mathematics syllabus;
describe strategies for teaching mathematical thinking;
identify students at risk and devise appropriate learning strategies.
