Module Title Mathematics Two
Module Code BE5006
Module Tutor Jacqueline McNeil
School Institute of Education and Public Services
CAT Points 15
Level of Study 5
Pre-requisites Before taking this module you must pass BE4006
Co-requisites None
Restrictions Available only to students on the BEd (Hons) Primary Education / BA Primary Professional Education programmes
Brief Description

The module aims to develop the students’ ability to teach all aspects of mathematics, including Using and Applying, in the primary school. Alignment of the taught module with school placements will ensure that the students have the knowledge and understanding of the plan, teach, assess, review cycle to enable them to plan and teach effectively.  Students will be able to critically evaluate the range of teaching and learning approaches that characterise successful teaching in maths, identifying where the use of ICT can enhance, enrich and enable learning.

Indicative Syllabus

This module covers: number, algebra, data handling, shape and space, the use of ICT, and planning and assessment in mathematics. The students will develop their knowledge of the National Curriculum and related national documentation. The module will build on the BE4006 module, exploring further the links between theory and practice. Students will be expected to continue to develop their subject knowledge in maths in response to identifying their own individual targets. This will be tracked throughout the year by continued use of the audit document. Through this module, students will be able to recognise underachievement and respond positively and appropriately to individual and diverse learning needs through the planning, teaching, assessment and evaluation of the subject across all learners.

Learning Outcomes

A student passing this module should be able to:

1. Demonstrate that they have an increasingly secure knowledge and understanding of mathematics in order to teach maths effectively and confidently in the primary classroom.

2. Demonstrate a working knowledge of the requirements of the Primary Maths Curriculum

3. Develop their understanding of the purposes of assessment, recording, and reporting in promoting mathematical learning.

4. Develop skills in using diagnostic assessment to analyse children’s learning and plan next steps.

5. Understand how classroom ethos and organisation can promote positive attitudes towards mathematics and  will evaluate their own teaching of mathematics in order to improve their practice

6. Understand a range of teaching strategies and resources, including the models and images that support mathematical understanding of written and mental methods and the embedding of ICT, which they can apply in school.

7.Develop secure knowledge and understanding of how ICT can support and enhance teaching and learning in maths
