At the completion of this subject students will be able to:
demonstrate knowledge of the mathematics curriculum and principles associated with effective teaching in the early years
analyse and interpret mathematical data from a case study; make judgements on mathematical understanding
create written feedback on student mathematical learning for children and parents
plan a mathematics program for 5 to 8 year-olds, based on the Australian curriculum (and/or local curriculum documents) by selecting appropriate content, assessment items, teaching strategies and resources.
This subject will prepare pre-service teachers to plan, assess and deliver rigorous mathematical learning programs for children aged five to eight. A major focus of the subject is on developing knowledge of curriculum documents and mathematics concepts in number, algebra, geometry, measurement, and statistics and probability.
