This subject explores the pedagogical content knowledge for teaching Foundation to Year 6 mathematics, with a focus on the Australian Curriculum proficiency strands of Understanding and Fluency. Participants will study research on students’ mathematical thinking, as well as teaching for procedural fluency and conceptual understanding. They will also consider pedagogical issues such as teacher questioning, selection of good examples and explanations, effective use of resources (e.g. technology and models) and the role of formative assessment. Links will be made between classroom practice and research into the teaching and learning of mathematics.
At the completion of this subject, students should be able to;
