This subject builds on the central concepts, modes of enquiry and content structure within the K-6 mathematics continuum, highlighting the role of mathematics in everyday situations, and the importance of home and community numeracy practices. Students explore the principles and practices underpinning the teaching of mathematics and develop an appreciation and deep understanding of current syllabus documents that will inform and guide their pedagogical practice. This subject also reinforces the function of 'real world' mathematics as a numerate and literate practice and the role and value of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) as a pedagogical tool.
