ED201C: EXPLORING MATHEMATICAL CONCEPTUAL UNDERSTANDING-ABERDEEN (2020-2021)

Last modified: 05 Aug 2021 13:04


Course Overview

This course aims to provide students with opportunities to consider the importance of numeracy and mathematical conceptual understanding to lifelong learning as the rationale for numeracy and maths being a core curriculum area and the responsibility of all teachers 3 – 18.  It will provide essential knowledge of cognitive development and key related theories and will explore research informed approaches to the teaching of maths, as a basis to consider the implications of these approaches for classroom practice.  Students will begin to explore pedagogical approaches to maths teaching and learning in a 2nd level classroom.
