Building on preservice teachers' growing understandings of how children from diverse backgrounds learn mathematics, this subject will explore mathematical and pedagogical issues at an advanced level in teaching and learning mathematics across the early years' curriculum frameworks (birth - age 8) (specifically these are: the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG) and ACARA: Mathematics). It also includes the examination of current national and state curriculum frameworks and policies in mathematics education. The subject aims to equip preservice teachers as reflective practitioners, able to plan, implement and evaluate mathematical pedagogies and each child's learning. The subject will consider assessment, literacy and numeracy in Early Childhood Education and Care and school settings in depth and equip pre-service teachers with the tools necessary to interpret and plan effective mathematics sequences grounded on the systematic interpretation of student data in the early years.
