Past and present practices will be reflected on, critically analysed and evaluated in the light of research findings, curriculum documents and teaching practice. Students will explore higher order thinking in Mathematics education, identify the significance of problem-solving strategies and their importance for emerging mathematical thinkers. Students will create learning experiences which foster and encourage language and risk taking in mathematical contexts, which are essential ingredients to solve problems and reason mathematically in the 21st century.
