This unit introduces students to the curriculum and pedagogy associated with teaching secondary mathematics (Grades 7 to 10). It is intended that students will be challenged about their ideas of the nature of mathematics. In addition, students will take part in activities that show that mathematics can be taught in more enriching ways than traditional "chalk and talk" methods. This unit will also explore and consider ways in which technology can enhance student learning of mathematics. Students will be encouraged to reflect on their own experience of learning mathematics at secondary school. The responsibility of teachers to foster positive attitudes towards mathematics in the classroom, school and wider community will also be considered.
TEACHING PATTERN: 1 x 1 hr Lecture (online)1 x 2 hr face to face tutorial (13 weeks).
