Aims and objectives

This unit familiarises pre-service teachers with mathematics in an educational context and beyond. They will understand the difference between mathematics and numeracy, and the implications of this on teaching and learning. Pre-service teachers will be enticed by the wonder mathematics presents in our everyday lives, and how this can be utilised in educational contexts. This unit will also briefly look at how children develop mathematical thinking.


Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
8. Define and describe the similarities and differences between mathematics and numeracy.
9. Identify everyday phenomena that can be explained using mathematics and numeracy.
10. Recognise and develop opportunities for numeracy and mathematics related experiences in play, and everyday experiences in early childhood settings (birth to eight years of age).
11. Describe the nature and development of mathematical thinking and numeracy processes in children.
12. Describe how the relevant National and/or State or Territory curriculum for maths encourages understanding in mathematics and numeracy for children.
13. Use ICT to develop children’s engagement with numeracy and mathematics.
14. Demonstrate personal competency in mathematics.
