This subject will assist in the development of mathematical knowledge by the presentation of the content via practical applications, problem solving and mathematical modelling. It will provide students with the opportunity to reflect on previously acquired knowledge, new knowledge, and facilitate the construction of mathematical relationships. This will stimulate students to make connections and to develop a coherent framework for mathematical ideas. This subject will incorporate strategies to develop positive attitudes towards mathematics and in particular in the teaching of mathematics. Students will be required to demonstrate a sound knowledge of mathematical concepts, procedures and connections.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate conceptual and procedural understanding of mathematics by using multiple representation;
2. Demonstrate the ability to solve mathematical problems using a variety of strategies; and
3. Exhibit a positive attitude towards mathematics.
Up to four hours or equivalent a week.
