Aims and objectives

This unit provides pre-service teachers with a range of skills and understandings related to numeracy that are now a standard component of the contemporary curriculum environment in Australian schools. By engaging in student-directed inquiry into a range of curriculum areas, pre-service teachers will develop and articulate understanding of the numeracy demands and conventions of these areas, and plan for numeracy development within their subject teaching.

Unit Learning Outcomes: Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:

1. Critically analyse the teaching of numeracy and its application across the curriculum.
2. Differentiate between formal and informal numeracy learning and thinking.
3. Construct processes and experiences that develop numeracy capabilities within and beyond disciplinary areas.
4. Evaluate understanding of the numeracy conventions and demands associated with particular curriculum areas.
5. Critically reflect upon their personal numeracy capacity.
