Pedagogical Content Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics ESH320

Launceston, Cradle Coast

Note:

Introduction

This unit builds on your existing knowledge of appropriate pedagogies for teaching mathematics by extending it to include knowledge of relevant curricula (including Belonging, Being and Becoming: The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia, DEEWR 2009), the development of students' thinking in each of the domains, and the relationship of content knowledge to pedagogy. It will provide you with further opportunities to assess students' thinking as evidenced in diagnostic assessment and to develop their skills in planning for teaching based on this information.
