About this Unit
In 2010 this unit replaced by 101580 - Primary Mathematics and Numeracy 1. Mathematics is constructed by a thinking individual with the assistance and support of others. Some of these 'others' are called 'teachers'. In this unit, beginning teachers investigate how they can facilitate and support the learning of mathematics by students in the K-6 school years so that these students can show their full potential as mathematics learners. The unit will study the NSW K-6 Mathematics Syllabus in all of its strands, with a particular emphasis on working mathematically. A strong emphasis will be placed on investigation, exploration, problem solving and the use of technology in the development of mathematical ideas.
