EMA512 Mathematics and Context

This postgraduate unit translates the mathematical content knowledge and pedagogic content knowledge into practice through the processes of mathematising and contextualising. Pre-service teachers will develop their knowledge about mathematising and contextualising to enable themselves to 'read the world' with mathematics. The knowledge involves a development of a socially just and inclusive mathematics curriculum to customise learning to specific contexts such as Indigenous education. The unit provides pre-service teachers with opportunities to engage and explore in-depth rich tasks, group work, and professional network with mathematical community to gain a broad understanding of mathematics' curriculum. Pre-service teachers will also review and critically analyse learning opportunities that exist outside the classroom through using examples from across different domains and contexts to cater for a variety of learners.
