Primary Key Learning Area



This subject requires completion of a basic skills mastery test in order to enrol in the subject.


This subject develops students' understanding of how to work mathematically in the teaching and learning of aspects of the NSW K-6 Mathematics syllabus. Good teaching practice is modelled using hands-on collaborative tasks so students learn and can use mathematics in their teaching. Students use current approaches to develop their own understanding of number, statistics and probability concepts and to develop strategies and techniques for teaching these concepts in the primary school. Participative and collaborative learning approaches are employed each week in the workshops and the use of reflection and documentation of learning through portfolios is continued. The subject assists students to develop critical thought about, and reflection on, the teaching of mathematics in the primary school.
