Maths

The focus of these packages is on how teaching mathematical content is enhanced by digital technologies, the rationale for using a technological approach and the ways in which this approach changes how students learn, how their mathematical understanding develops and how skills are improved. You will gain an understanding of how to use specific educational technologies, how to organise your classroom, a range of teaching strategies and classroom management ideas. References to further material for your professional learning are also provided.

The early years of schooling

This package is about teaching number sequences and counting to support the development of number sense and computation strategies in the early years. This includes demonstrating the value of using technology to facilitate student exploration of the structure of number sequences and improving their skills in counting and skip counting.

Upper primary years and the first years of lower secondary schooling

This package is about teaching the relationship between common fractions and percentages to middle-years students and connecting to real contexts through technology to develop proportional reasoning. This includes demonstrating how to use technologies that can access, manipulate, gather and communicate mathematical data and processes and working with real-life spatial problems and statistics.

Years 9 and 10

This package is about looking for relationships between two variables from sets of data to develop the statistical interpretation and reasoning needed to solve problems and engage with real social and global issues. This includes demonstrating the value of using technology to access, represent, manipulate and analyse authentic, socially meaningful data and the ways in which this changes how students learn, how their understanding of scatterplots develops and how their data interpretation skills are improved.
