Mathematics, Primary and Junior, Part 2
Course Code: TCS20MA2Y
Availability: Enrolment is closed
The Primary/Junior Mathematics Part 2 Additional Qualification Course will engage you in a process of inquiry to explore and develop a life-long-learner mindset for teaching and, specifically, to take you from what you learned in Part 1 to the next level of expertise for instruction in mathematics. The course embeds proportional/ relative thinking and spatial reasoning in all strands.
Using the multiple lenses of big ideas, cultural diversity, and lesson study, you will examine the pedagogical content knowledge of the curriculum strands in Number Sense (proportional reasoning, fractions, decimals), Geometry and Measurement. Further, you will collaboratively create a guide to the most challenging part of mathematics instruction: the debrief.
The summative activity for the course is to further develop the entire process of design-down planning by pre-assessing through sample conferencing and other methods the planning, delivery, post-assessment and analysis of the results of a study unit.
