This subject surveys the numeracy programs used in primary schools. Students will learn to identify the normal stages through which children pass in the development of additive and multiplicative thinking and to design appropriate teaching for each stage. The demands of mathematical notation and the characteristics of mathematics language is examined, along with strategies and resources for teaching those for whom English is a second language. Students will examine the teaching of skills for the conduct of mathematical investigations and real world problem solving. Students will develop their own skills of mathematical investigation through a program providing experience and reflection on the problem solving process and develop material for extension and enrichment activities in schools.
