This unit of study is the second in a pair of units providing BEd(Primary) students with the necessary requirements for a primary 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 big ideas surrounding mathematical relationships and reasoning in the Measurement and Geometry strand, and contributes to the development of emerging leadership skills. Connections between theory, research and practice will be exemplified through close links with the fourth year professional experience internship.
