Engaging with the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics K-6
WHAT ARE THE CHALLENGES FOR TEACHERS AND SCHOOLS?
Postponed until 2011 (Previously scheduled for Saturday 6 November 2010)
Due to delays in the release of new curriculum documents this course will now run next year. We apologise for any inconvenience.
This course is for primary school leaders, teachers and systems personnel. The Australian Curriculum: Mathematics for Years K to 6 offers a unique opportunity to consider the challenges we face when implementing new approaches to the teaching and learning of mathematics in primary classrooms.
Through lecture-style presentation and group workshop activities, the differences between the current Mathematics Years K6 Syllabus for NSW and the new Australian Curriculum: Mathematics will be considered as well as the implications for teaching both the proficiency strands and the content strands. The general capabilities and cross-curriculum perspectives will also be addressed, with examples of the implementation of these into mathematics lessons.
Associate Professor Judy Anderson, Faculty of Education and Social Work
