In this subject, students will learn about the development of mathematical and scientific understandings from birth to eight years of age. The subject will focus on foundation mathematical and scientific concepts and processes, and students will explore how these understandings are developed through childrens everyday activities, play, and investigations, across the birth to eight spectrum. The subject will explore what mathematics and science looks like in these different settings, and the pedagogical approaches for recognising, supporting and extending mathematical and scientific development in each of these settings. Students will learn how to observe, record and analyse childrens mathematical and scientific activity in early childhood settings.
