Introduction

This unit is the foundation mathematics and numeracy unit for the Master of Teaching. It provides an opportunity for students to reflect upon and to develop their understanding of concepts that are central to mathematics curricula; to consider the cross-curricula implications and opportunities afforded by these topics; and to develop quantitative literacy understandings that will enable them to be informed professionals. Foci of the unit include the development of a critical orientation to presentation of mathematical concepts in the media, and an appreciation of the importance of quantitative understandings to the personal and professional lives of all teachers
