Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

Syllabus

This subject will assist ensuring that students attain appropriate levels of mathematical capability to inform their progression towards their use and interpretation of mathematics within their careers in Education. It will aid in the development of mathematical knowledge by the presentation of the content via practical applications, problem solving and mathematical modelling. It is taught via a Mastery learning and assessment methodology so that students will progress through conceptual stages only when they have achieved an effective level of understanding at each conceptual stage. It uses online Learning Management Systems.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to demonstrate:

1. Mastery of at least 80% of their essential range of mathematical skills and concepts;

2. Conceptual and procedural mastery of basic mathematical operations dealing with whole numbers;

3. Conceptual and procedural mastery of a range of arithmetic and mathematical operations and transformations including fractions, decimals and percentages, estimation and rounding, proportions and proportional reasoning, scientific notation, powers and roots;

4. Conceptual and procedural mastery of a range of arithmetic and mathematical operations and transformations involving various shapes and their measurement, basic geometry, rates of change, systems and units of measurement;

5. Skills in creating, reading and using data in tables and graphs; and

6. The ability to solve mathematical problems using a variety of strategies.
