|This is the first unit of study in Mathematics Education and students will be introduced to key issues associated with how children acquire early mathematical concepts, processes and knowledge. The Learning Framework in Number will be a major focus of content for this unit of study. As part of this study students will be required to assess a child from the K-2 grades using an interview schedule and to use the results to plan activities that demonstrate knowledge of worthwhile mathematical tasks.|
