General Information

Overview

Teaching for Mathematical Proficiency focuses on the development of professional knowledge that supports the teaching of Mathematics in primary schools in this unit. You will explore Mathematics content and experiment with pedagogical approaches for teaching mathematical reasoning and understanding. You will be introduced to mathematics content that recognises your own disposition towards mathematics and how your students may find learning mathematics difficult. You will evaluate ICTs and other resources, learning processes and teaching strategies on the development of mathematical proficiency. You will be introduced to the rationale, organisation and content of the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics and design plans for learning and teaching mathematical concepts and skills appropriate for specific year levels in the primary school. You will explain and justify approaches to promoting numeracy development through reference to authoritative sources and identify strategies for informing and involving parents and carers in the educative process. You will demonstrate effective pedagogy in Mathematics through role play of examples of classroom practice including the use of ICTs to support mathematical understanding. You will be introduced to the socioconstructivist approach to teaching mathematics through problem solving and inquiry based learning. you will be encouraged to facilitate your students' mathematical thinking.
