Catholic Education SA invites expressions of interest from teachers to be involved in the Number and Algebra Unit - part of the 1.5 year mathematics course.

This mathematics course is in response to the Australian Curriculum and the subsequent demand by teachers wishing to further expand their own mathematical knowledge. This course consists of three units, to further develop teacher’s current understanding in Number & Algebra, Measurement & Geometry and Statistics & Probability.  Although it is preferable that teachers undertake all three units, there is the option that units can be undertaken individually. Teachers will need to register for each unit separately on the CESA Registration Centre.

The course has been designed to build on teachers’ current mathematical understanding. It will predominately use an inquiry approach to the learning of mathematics.  As this course has a focus primarily on content, it is open to teachers from Reception to Year 10 who want to further their own mathematical knowledge.




  • build a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts in the three content strands in the Australian Curriculum
  • be a more confident  and enthusiastic mathematics teacher
  • develop  the capability and confidence to apply the learned mathematical concepts to solve unfamiliar mathematical problems
  • be motivated to continue the journey of lifelong learning of mathematics

Structure and requirements of the Mathematics course:

The course consists of three units: Number & Algebra and Statistics & Probability units will be run in 2013 and Measurement & Geometry will be run in semester 1 of 2014.

Teachers can opt to do one or two units. It is however, preferable that they undertake all 3 units. It is expected that they attend all sessions for the unit(s) they enrol in.
