Gippsland First semester 2008 (Day)
Peninsula First semester 2008 (Day)
This unit is focused on children's development of mathematical concepts and strategies to facilitate their learning and teaching of numeracy. It develops students' knowledge about children's learning in primary mathematics, including development in early number concepts, written and mental computation, estimation, fractions and decimals, measurement, space, while providing opportunity for them to develop confidence and competence in mathematics. Children's development will also be contextualised in the values portrayed through mathematics teaching. A range of appropriate pedagogical strategies will be used to develop students' understanding of ways to enhance children's learning.
On completion of this unit students should:
A written report on observational mathematics tasks undertaken with children. (2000 words) 50%
A class test (2000 words) 50%
3 hrs per week
