10 cp Prerequisites EDMA517 Mathematics Curriculum and Teaching 1
This unit is designed to provide participants with strategies for planning, implementing and monitoring learning experiences for students studying mathematics in the upper secondary school. The unit will build on both national and state documents relating to mathematical curricula and in particular the state documents for mathematics in the senior secondary years. There is a focus on the use of information and communication technologies. The unit proceeds to explore strategies for developing mathematical applications in real world problems, and assessment of learning, both formative and summative. The importance of cultural factors and language use in learning will be underlying themes. Attention will be given to mathematical modelling, topics taught in senior mathematics classes and optional areas in the syllabus.
