This unit introduces students to pedagogies appropriate for teaching primary mathematics. The unit will model and provide opportunities for students to engage with rich tasks, group work, problem solving, and differentiating the curriculum, using examples from across all domains of the Australian Mathematics Curriculum. Students will develop their understanding of appropriate pedagogies for teaching mathematics and their knowledge of relevant curricula, the development of students' thinking in each of the domains, and the relationship of content knowledge to pedagogy. It will provide pre-service teachers with the opportunity to develop their skills in planning for mathematics teaching and with using resources such as children's literature to provide students with authentic and worthwhile mathematical experiences.
