This subject extends teacher education students' knowledge and practice of mathematics teaching and learning with a focus on Year 11 and Year 12 NSW Mathematics syllabuses and the Australian Curriculum. Particular attention is devoted to issues in the teaching and learning of mathematics and the application of contemporary theories of learning in mathematics in planning of units of work for Stage 6. In this subject students will explore a range of strategies and ICTs for teaching and assessing Stage 6 mathematics, with a focus on ways of differentiating the curriculum to meet the diverse needs of learners. The role and value of mathematics in the broader school curriculum and strategies to embed the cross-curricular priorities and general capabilities are also explored. The subject builds upon the previous secondary mathematics curriculum and pedagogy subject and assumes students have a deep understanding of the discipline content associated with Stage 6 mathematics.
