Leaders in Mathematics Education (LiME)
The Leaders in Mathematics Education is a specialist stream for students in the BEd (Primary) program. The stream culminates in a new, Leaders in Mathematics Education, Special Interest course in Year 4.
The aim of this program of study is to encourage BEd teacher education students to undertake specialist study of mathematics within their generalist primary program. The goal is to develop graduates with a specialist content and pedagogical knowledge in mathematics, and who possess the leadership qualities to inspire other teachers to strengthen the teaching of mathematics in primary schools. Such an outcome will underpin increased achievement and confidence in mathematics of school students as they transition to high school.
