The Postgraduate Certificate in Primary Mathematics is a three module credit course at M level, consisting of a single taught module and a double module supporting your action research.
- good practice in primary mathematics teaching - through investigating key research in mathematical learning and conceptual development, and looking at how this links to classroom practice;
- Mathematics as a culturally situated and identity driven practice - by looking at national and international practice in mathematics education, and models of social representation and dialogical identity, we will discuss many of the often ignored impacts on learning and development;
- curricular change and development in teaching of mathematics, from ages 4 - 11, aligning teaching and subject knowledge, enabling you to identify areas for your own subject knowledge enhancement;
- ways of 'surveying' mathematical teaching and analysing attainment in your class/classes, and using this to plan interventions and 'next steps' around specific mathematical concepts.
