The subject allows students to further develop their philosophy of teaching and learning mathematics. It examines the construction of, and builds students' understandings in, sound methodological principles for the development of concepts in introductory algebra, geometry and the number plane, and problem solving, including assessment in mathematics. The subject also identifies and analyses some of the issues in teaching students whose first language is not English, and develops an awareness of their implications for student learning. Students are encouraged to reflect on their own learning about, and teaching of, the NSW K–6 Mathematics syllabus.
