EDX3280 Mathematics Curriculum and Pedagogy

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Education
School or Department : Education


Students will examine a variety of concepts from each strand within the primary school and middle school mathematics curriculum. Past and present practices will be critically examined in the light of research findings, curriculum documents and teaching practice. These practices will be analyzed, compared, adapted, modified and refined in the context of group discussion and guided workshop activities. Readings, computers and focus questions will be used to help students identify and address challenges faced by the typical teacher of mathematics. Students will be encouraged to build frameworks for thinking about and articulating their own approaches to teaching mathematics. Components making up the first assessment item will be integrated into these workshops and assessed on a continuous ongoing basis.
