There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


In this subject students critically examine key issues, evidence-based research and teaching approaches in numeracy instruction for students with diverse abilities. Students are provided with information and experiences which assist them to determine and utilise appropriate assessment tools and develop programs based on detailed analysis of assessment results. Students examine adaptation of mainstream mathematics curricula and functional numeracy based on individualised ecological inventories. The role of language in numeracy instruction is also examined, and appropriate and motivating activities and teaching strategies to assist students to effectively learn are investigated in detail. Emphasis is also placed on programming and teaching functional numeracy concepts and skills to learners with moderate to high support needs in a variety of school, home and community settings. All subject resources, such as YouTube videos, readings and professional websites, are available via Canvas. From time to time students may be required to contribute to a forum/wiki via Canvas.
