Content

This unit is the final in a sequence of three compulsory primary mathematics education units. There are two foci. The first is that pre-service teachers will continue to develop key mathematical concepts, mathematical language, multiple representations and flexible strategies, with a particular focus on algebraic thinking. Second, pre-service teachers will become critically informed about issues that can impact their future practice as teachers of mathematics. These issues might include: local, national and international data and evidence of student mathematics achievement; the role of mathematics within interdisciplinary STEM programs; the trend towards team planning and teaching, including within open learning spaces; and the use of commercial solutions for teaching and assessing mathematics learning.
