|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Education (pre 2015)
Available to students enrolled in the BEd Early Childhood Major and BEd (Professional
Development Early Chilhdood Major.
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 (Foundation - year 3). 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 that are informed by research
and support contemporary approaches to children's learning in the early years.
- demonstrate sound pedagogical content knowledge for teaching early childhood mathematics
as stipulated in current curriculum frameworks;
- plan for the integration of mathematical learning across all curriculum areas, and
address issues of access and equity in teaching early childhood mathematics;
- demonstrate confidence and skills in planning and assessing children's mathematical
learning in the primary years; and;
- demonstrate Australian Professional Standards for Teachers at an assured level.
