The module aims to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence for you to teach mathematics in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, and to understand how it is taught in related phases. There is an emphasis within the module to explore different approaches to problem solving, using and applying mathematics, for peer support and developing you as a future subject leader in mathematics. The module covers mathematics in wider contexts beyond the classroom and it is hoped that you develop a longer-term view on effective teaching of mathematics grounded in theory and practice.
Taught sessions will be delivered via lectures, seminars, and workshops (on and off-campus), including peer teaching as appropriate.
