Launceston, Cradle Coast
This unit can be taken as an elective in Education courses. It is not available as an elective in some other courses. Please check with your Faculty prior to enrolling in this unit.
This unit is the foundation mathematics and numeracy unit for the Bachelor of Education. It provides an opportunity to reflect upon and to develop understanding of concepts that are central to mathematics curricula; to consider the cross-disciplinary implications and opportunities afforded by these topics; and to develop quantitative literacy understandings that will enable students to be informed professionals. Foci of the unit include the development of a critical orientation to presentation of numeracy concepts in the media, and an appreciation of the importance of quantitative understandings to the personal and professional lives of all teachers.
