EDUP1015: Teaching Primary Mathematics 1

This unit focuses on the mathematics content areas of measurement and space and geometry. Interactive sessions will develop students' understanding of how children learn key measurement and geometric concepts and provide opportunities for students to practise foundational and inclusive pedagogies necessary for high quality teaching of mathematics. Working mathematically processes and effective use of digital technologies will be integrated throughout the unit.
