EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST IN THE MATHEMATICS COURSE
NUMBER AND ALGEBRA UNIT
Catholic Education SA invites expressions of interest from teachers to be involved in a mathematics course. This course consists of three modules; Number & Algebra, Measurement & Geometry and, Statistics & Probability as per the Australian Curriculum. This course will focus on building and deepening teachers’ mathematical content knowledge, simultaneously building teachers’ pedagogical content knowledge. The pedagogy will be influenced by inquiry approaches, which could inform classroom practices.
As this course focuses primarily on content, it is open to all teachers who want to further develop their own mathematical knowledge. In the past, teachers teaching from Reception to Year 10 have participated and they have all gained a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts.
It is preferable that teachers undertake all three modules, however, there is the option to undertaken one or two modules only. It is an expectation that teachers attend all sessions for the module they are enrolled in. In 2016, only the module on Number and Algebra will be offered. The other two modules will be offered in 2017.
