    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.
