Programme overview

Recent years have seen many changes to the mathematics curriculum and we expect the next few years to be ones of embedding and consolidating new practices.

There is no one way to teach Mathematics. Schools use a variety of approaches and this programme will allow you to discover how best to use your talents to teach maths effectively.

What you will learn

Research and latest developments will drive your teacher education. We now understand more about how children learn mathematics and how different teaching methods are needed. You’ll develop mathematical skills through:

  • discussion
  • practical activity
  • Problem-solving
  • open-ended investigative work
  • mental methods of calculation and algorithms
  • the use of calculators and computers.

You’ll learn how to use all of these methods and how a focus of maths as a means of communication can help your pupils master the structures of mathematics.

How you will learn

You’ll work with your fellow student teachers and supporting each other you will learn by:

  • working on issues of teaching and learning
  • doing maths together
  • developing and extending your knowledge of maths
  • looking at activities for the classroom
  • thinking about what pupils might experience
  • sharing technical skills, such as computer equipment and packages.
