Subject Overview:

This subject surveys early numeracy programs, the early diagnosis of mathematics learning difficulties and intervention strategies. Students will learn to identify the normal stages through which children pass in early mathematical learning and to design appropriate teaching for each stage. The development of mathematical language for basic concepts is examined, along with strategies and resources for teaching those for whom English is a second language. Students will develop appropriate learning sequences for different types of early learners and will compare alternative approaches to the teaching of mathematics. A range of assessment, diagnostic and reporting methods suitable for the early years will be studied.
