Synopsis

This course has been designed to provide pre-service teachers with various understandings of pedagogical and content knowledge to successfully teach mathematics in the changing world. The course focuses on inquiry-based, and problem-based learning approaches to develop a deeper understanding of pre-service teachers' pedagogical and content knowledge to teach mathematics in the primary context. Throughout the course, pre-service teachers will be introduced to various theoretical perspectives, mathematical content knowledge, and pedagogical approaches that are relevant to research findings and teaching practice. The course will assist pre-service teachers to develop and extend their knowledge and understanding of teaching mathematics in the primary context.
