ED1492 - Teaching Mathematics and Numeracy in Primary and Early Childhood Settings

Credit points: 3
Year: 2019
Student Contribution Band: Band 1
Administered by: College of Arts, Society & Education

Limited offering available only to RATEP students

This subject engages pre-service teachers in exploring mathematics and numeracy demands of professional life as they pertain to the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG) and up to Year 9 level in the Australian Curriculum. Pre-service teachers examine mathematical content from a teacher's perspective with a focus on Number, Algebra and Statistics. This appraisal includes recognizing and responding to students' alternative conceptions of mathematics. Pre-service teachers examine and reflect on authoritative research to develop a basic understanding of pedagogy that is responsive to the strengths and learning needs of diverse learners.

Learning Outcomes

  • plan, present and critique micro-teaching episodes that demonstrate an understanding of effective teaching strategies for diverse learners in mathematics;
  • evaluate and construct artefacts for a diverse range of stakeholders (e.g.: colleagues, parents and teachers) that advocate for the role of numeracy across all fields of human endeavour;
  • demonstrate the mathematical content knowledge and skills required for teaching in early childhood and primary settings.
