EMM410 Mathematics in the Primary Years (8)
This subject consolidates the central concepts, modes of enquiry and structure of the content of mathematics and explicitly connects these ideas to the models of pedagogy for teaching and assessing mathematics. There will be a strong emphasis on ways of differentiating curriculum to meet the diverse needs of learners in the mathematics classroom. The role and value of mathematics in the broader school curriculum and the relationship between mathematics, numeracy and literacy will also be addressed in this subject.
