This subject introduces students to pedagogies appropriate for teaching primary mathematics and contributes to your evidence for meeting Graduate Teaching Standards . The subject will model and provide opportunities for students to engage with rich tasks, group work, problem solving, and differentiating the curriculum using examples from the number domain of the Australian Curriculum. Students will develop their understanding of appropriate pedagogies for teaching mathematics and their knowledge of relevant curricula, the development of students' thinking in number, and the relationship of content knowledge to pedagogy. It will provide pre-service teachers with opportunities to deepen their own mathematical content knowledge within the domain of number, assess primary students' mathematical thinking using work samples and to evaluate teaching resources.
