Curriculum Objective

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.


  1. 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;
  2. 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;
  3. 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;
  4. 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.
