The aim of this unit of study is to introduce issues associated with the teaching and learning of mathematics from Kindergarten to Year 12 to student teachers undertaking both double and single secondary mathematics method. The continuum of learning for K to 10 will be explored as it outlines the developmental nature of learning mathematics, building concepts across the transitional stages of schooling, and considering strategies to address the learning needs of the full range of students in the mathematics classroom. The importance of building upon learning in the primary school years will be a key focus in this first mathematics methods unit of study. Particular issues in the teaching and leaning of mathematics will be addressed through the investigation of scenarios related to school contexts. To reflect the collaborative nature of working in a team of teachers in schools, student teachers will form small learning teams to explore scenarios, related to high school settings. In these teams, student teachers will be required to collaboratively investigate the issues raised in the scenarios and plan sequential learning experiences appropriate for high school students.
