EDO3682 Higher Order Thinking: Maths P-7
It is highly recommended that students undertaking this course have also completed EDX1280 and EDX3280.
This course aims to consolidate knowledge, skills and understanding of the specialised mathematical concepts, processes and affects that develop during the critical pre-primary and primary years of children's education. Students will explore higher order thinking in mathematics education to appreciate the significance of problem-solving strategies and heuristics appropriate for children as they emerge as mathematical thinkers. Students will explore avenues to foster and encourage language and risk taking in mathematical contexts with young children which are essential ingredients for children to solve problems and reason mathematically.
