This subject is concerned with improving the learning outcomes for students in primary and secondary schools in selected hard-to-teach topics that are central to numeracy. It will considerably enhance the numeracy-specific pedagogical content knowledge of the participants. A detailed study of the conceptual growth along a developmental continuum that is required for making progress in key areas of mathematics will be undertaken. Participants will learn to conduct ‘assessment for learning’ in a way that is instructionally highly effective. Diagnostic assessments will be reviewed, critiqued and created, and used with sample students. Teaching methods that promote conceptual growth will be reviewed, with relevant research. All topics will be examined through the lens of current Australian and international educational policies.
On completion of the subject students will be able to
