Unit of study_

Mathematics and Numeracy - EDUP1003

Year - 2020

The aim of this unit is to assist students to develop a more holistic understanding and appreciation of mathematics and numeracy, and of themselves as learners of mathematics through exploration of mathematical systems, patterns, relationships and reasoning. Through practical and collaborative workshops designed to cater for a range of learning styles, students will develop deeper understandings of fundamental mathematical concepts and processes. This unit content is situated in historical and cultural contexts, including indigenous and non-English speaking perspectives so as to promote an appreciation for the origins, evolution and purposes of mathematics. Students will reflect upon the meanings and roles of numeracy in their own lives and in modern society, including educational contexts.
