This unit is the third of three compulsory units in primary mathematics education; it is offered as a wholly on line unit. In this final unit students will address issues related to their future professional practice in schools and the wider education community. The main focus will be on increasing students' skills in curriculum planning, assessment and reporting, and extending their knowledge of current issues, research and development in mathematics education. Topics to be addressed include: problematic issues relevant to the implementation of mathematics curricula; assessment, evaluation and reporting, including the use of authentic assessment tasks; catering for diversity, including intervention and remediation; curriculum planning in mathematics; socio-cultural and equity factors in planning and implementing inclusive mathematics learning; mathematics in an integrated curriculum; and continuing professional development.
eLecture responses on curriculum issues and assessment practices in primary mathematics (40%) and a multimedia resource focusing on mathematics curriculum (60%).
Assessment will total the equivalent of 4000 words.
