This subject deepens students' own knowledge of mathematics from the space and measurement dimensions of VELS and functional dependence from the algebra strand, through challenging investigations. The major psychological theories of children's thinking and learning of mathematics will be studied, along with the methods by which research into this is conducted. Students will analyse teaching techniques and concrete and technological aids which develop different components of mathematical competence such as skills, concepts, practical ability and estimation. Current Victorian and national curriculum documents will be used. Students will design sequences of lessons related to selected learning outcomes.
