|MA 157||MATHEMATICS AND NUMERACY TEACHING||MA 95||3|
The focus of this course is on mathematical literacy (numeracy) as a key educational outcome and the important role that all teachers play in achieving this goal in school. Mathematics lays the foundation for the development of students’ mathematical literacy. Through this course, participants will explore and design hands-on numeracy learning experiences to promote students’ capacity and confidence to use mathematics in the real world. They will explore the scope, structure and philosophy of the school mathematics curriculum and develop a wide repertoire of teaching approaches that can support students’ understanding of mathematics and hence build their numeracy skills.
