General Information


In Mathematics Curriculum, you will build on the knowledge acquired in previous mathematics units to develop a deeper understanding of the structure, sequencing and connections between the critical concepts and skills in mathematical content across the year levels in the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics. You will learn to solve problems through transference of mathematical knowledge using acquired reasoning, logic, and analytical skills. You will be able to identify physical and digital resources and justify differing pedagogies used to teach the sub-strands of the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics to overcome barriers to learning mathematics for children of diverse backgrounds. Your personal competence and proficiency towards mathematics teaching is enhanced in this unit, you will learn to identify issues and challenges to mathematical understanding at key stages of the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics. The learning sequence of this unit supports your ability to develop, and use, a suitable range of appropriate and accurate assessment processes to evaluate the mathematics learnt.
