The course focuses on developing deeper understanding in all strands of the Australian Mathematics Curriculum and is underpinned by a clear understanding of relevant subject-matter knowledge and current theories of learning and teaching. Methods of doing and teaching Mathematics experienced during the course are likely to be different to those experienced in the pre-service educator's own schooling. Past and present practices will be critically analysed and evaluated using research findings, curriculum documents and evidence-based teaching practice. Pre-service educator's will apply knowledge and skills to demonstrate autonomy, well-developed judgement, adaptability and responsibility as teachers of Mathematics.
