Mathematics Primary/Junior

Primary and Junior Part 1

Mathematics Primary and Junior Part 1 will provide participants with a strong foundation and understanding of how children acquire mathematical skills and understanding. Mathematics is a complex, meaning-making process that is fundamental for ongoing learning and student success. Teachers will develop skills to recognize the varying experiences and strategies that students use in exploring mathematical situations, in order to modify their instructional and assessment practices.

This course will focus on mathematics instruction that is based on sound research and effective classroom practice. Teachers will develop an understanding of student development and learning, and consider how this that relates to appropriate mathematics instruction. Teachers will examine how mathematically based opportunities should occur across the curriculum with different types of texts and strategies. Teachers will learn how to provide the opportunities for students to interact with a variety of problem-solving opportunities in a rich learning environment.

The course is open to all elementary and secondary school teachers who have one of the following basic qualifications: primary, junior, intermediate or senior division.

Primary and Junior Part 2

Mathematics Primary and Junior Part 2 explores the theoretical foundations, the development of learners, program planning and implementation, assessment, the learning environment, and ethical considerations related to teaching and learning across divisions.

The course also leads participants in:

  • Applying the theory of constructivism as it relates to the teaching of mathematics
  • Deepening an understanding of the factors that influence changes in the teaching of mathematics
  • Applying the interconnection of big ideas, key concepts, overall expectations, and enduring understandings in mathematics education
  • Applying instructional strategies to respond to math anxiety, avoidance, and phobia
  • Applying current research (for example, knowledge of mathematics for teaching, knowing the possible range of student response to problems, error analysis, choosing effective models for specific instructional purposes and developmental levels)

The course is open to all elementary and secondary school teachers who have one of the following basic qualifications: primary, junior, intermediate, or senior.
