Secondary Education (Mathematics)

The school-based element introduces fundamental classroom skills early in the programme. Students normally undertake 2 placements which allow them to gradually assume the responsibilities of classroom teachers. Students are also able to observe a variety of teaching approaches and put into practice the theory they have acquired through the course. In the taught element of the course, students analyse the content and nature of the mathematics curriculum, plan and provide interesting and appropriate learning opportunities for pupils and assess their progress. The role of information and communication technology in the effective teaching and learning of mathematics is considered. This course is offered for assessment at Master's level, with a maximum 60 Master's level credits available.
