This unit of study is the first in a pair of units providing BEd(Primary) students with the necessary requirements for a specialisation in Mathematics. It is designed to strengthen mathematical discipline knowledge and pedagogy in targeted, difficult-to-learn (and teach) content areas from a K-8 perspective. The unit focuses on the development of conceptual understanding in problematic aspects of Number and Algebra, and the use of digital technologies for mathematical representations and Working Mathematically. Connections between theory, research and practice will be exemplified through close links with the fourth year professional experience placement.
