Emphasises understanding and teaching curriculum outcomes, content and elements in relation to the applications of mathematics in context (e.g. applications in ICTs). Students will develop a comprehensive view of numeracy learning and focus on curriculum design and assessment to develop their own teaching scenarios. 

Unit content

Module 1: Working Mathematically  
 
Module 2: Numeracy Learning Progression 
 
Module 3: Curriculum Planning 
 
Module 4: Assessing  
 
Module 5: Reporting 
 
Module 6: Evidence and Research in Teaching Mathematics through Problem-Solving  

Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
1demonstrate comprehensive practical and theoretical knowledge of the Mathematics Learning Progressions
2plan and design mathematics sequences and lessons to enhance students’ mathematical thinking
3make connections across topics in mathematics and articulate the syllabus’ main objective: Working Mathematically and Processes: understanding, fluency, problem-solving and reasoning
4assess students’ mathematical competence and provide effective feedback
