Students will continue their study of the content and pedagogical aspects of mathematics education; and investigate the use of mathematical concepts and skills in everyday life. Topics will include developing strategies for effective teaching; problem-solving and investigations; developing geometric concepts and spatial thinking; teaching concepts related to data through an investigational approach; using technology to enhance mathematics teaching; and the development of informal and formal concepts for the measurement of mass, time, temperature, money and angle; considering issues relating to the evaluation of mathematics teaching and learning.
