Secondary Education (Mathematics)
Mathematics subject studies investigates the structure of the mathematics curriculum through number and algebra, shape, space and measures, and handling data. Students are expected to provide evidence of their development in teaching and learning through a personal mathematics portfolio, which is the main vehicle for the assessment. Alongside this, students are expected to develop a working knowledge of the Key Stage 3 Strategy. Students are involved in designing, producing, teaching and evaluating a range of materials currently used to support mathematics in the secondary school. An example of this is the use of a specific software application to develop numeracy. The course leads to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) on completion of skills tests.
Degree (2.2 or above) in a relevant subject. GCSE in mathematics and English grade C or above. It is recommended that students undertake at least 2 weeks work experience within a secondary mathematics classroom before applying.
School experience 1; school experience 2; specialism subject education (2 modules, includes professional studies); school experience totalling 120 days.
Subject studies are assessed by a portfolio of coursework and a school-based special study (a teaching resource). Progressive developments of teaching skills are recorded using criteria referenced assessment proforma. Professional studies are assessed by a range of written tasks. Observation of the students, teaching and evaluative discussions with course tutors and school based mentors and teachers. Students undertake skills tests in orders to gain Qualified Teacher Status.
