EDCU13020 - Mathematics Curriculum

General Information

Unit Synopsis

In Mathematics Curriculum, students build on the knowledge acquired in previous Mathematics units to develop deep understanding of the structure, sequencing and links between critical concepts and skills in content across the year levels in the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics. They apply this knowledge to identify issues or challenges to mathematical understanding and problem-solving in key stages of the learning sequence as a guide for developing diagnostic assessment tools. Students develop resources to prevent or overcome difficulties in the development of Mathematical knowledge and skills and design and justify approaches to using physical and digital resources to teach specific sub-strands of the curriculum to overcome barriers to learning and improve the transfer of mathematical reasoning, logic and analysis to problem-solving situations. Personal numeracy competence is enhanced in this unit as students develop suggested marking guides for diagnostic assessment using appropriate and accurate mathematical procedures and communication.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

This information will not be available until 8 weeks before term.
To see assessment details from an earlier availability, please search via a previous term.

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).

Feedback
Assessment task requirements
Recommendation
Develop FAQ to support task clarification for students
Action Taken
A wide range of strategies was incorporated into the Moodle site to support clarification of the assessment tasks for students. These strategies included exemplars, video recordings, modelling of each section of the task, as well as a dedicated assessment support block on the Moodle site and a forum to address frequently asked assessment task questions.
