This subject builds on CRS208 Primary Mathematics 1, with a focus on the classroom and how learners engage with mathematics. It further develops the Teacher Education Student’s (TES) ability to plan, teach and assess learners in a variety of contexts. It will investigate innovative ways in which programs can be developed to integrate numeracy across the curriculum. Assessing and reporting, with a focus on the identification of misconstructs will be explored. Recent developments in mathematics in relation to ICT, national testing, NSW NESA Mathematics K-10 syllabus and ACARA Mathematics F-10 curriculum will also be explained. Planning learning experiences and differentiation using technology and innovative practices will also be addressed.
- Critically examine and review approaches based on current research and resources including assessment and reporting, ICT integration, curriculum development and teaching from a Christian or alternate perspective in mathematics;
- Using the NSW NESA Mathematics K-10 syllabus or ACARA Mathematics F-10 curriculum develop a multimedia resource for presentation to teachers reflecting content knowledge, current issues in mathematics education and student learning;
- Develop curriculum materials, lesson plans, and assessment items from Early Stage 1 to Stage 3, based on the relevant mathematics syllabus within a theoretical and practical framework;
- Analyse and use the relevant curriculum to meet the learning needs of all students through an authentic and engaging teaching and learning program, designed and delivered from a Christian or alternate worldview perspective.
