Anti-requisite(s): 012212 Mathematics Teaching and Learning 3
This subject examines the construction of, and builds students' understandings in, sound methodological principles for the development of concepts in rational number, measurement, graphing, and mental arithmetic. Students are introduced to ways of teaching and learning concepts in measurement and rational number. The study of mathematical concepts in this subject involves the modelling of participative and collaborative learning approaches. Students are encouraged to reflect on their own learning about, and teaching of, the NSW K–6 Mathematics syllabus. The link with the school-based field component of the corresponding professional experience subject enables students to apply and reflect upon mathematics teaching and learning episodes.
