This unit will provide a sound theoretical base for the teaching of mathematics within Early Childhood and Primary settings. Constructivist and Representational theories will provide the major focus. This unit will examine curricular expectations for Early Childhood and Primary years and assist students in developing strategies for effective implementation of such curricula. The unit will also promote: developing positive attitudes towards mathematics, problem solving, communicating mathematically and reasoning mathematically, as well as assisting students to develop mathematical programs that incorporate these issues.
1. Develop teaching techniques and strategies for achieving the aims and objectives of a mathematics curriculum
2. Plan and engage in activities which will promote the confident application of learning skills to practical situations in the teaching of mathematics
3. Prepare materials appropriate for a specified age group of children in number, space, measurement, chance and data, mathematical inquiry and mathematical modelling
4. Report on the latest findings and developments in the field
5. Access and use technology for the teaching of mathematics
3 hours per week.
