  • Understand the stages and thought processes in all mathematics stages in curriculum levels 1–3 and in all three domains
  • Develop the knowledge to teach both place value and fractions to students at all year levels
  • Understand how to use the mathematics assessment data related to student achievement to inform further teaching and learning
  • Develop increased knowledge of the mathematics curriculum and pedagogical practices that can be used in the classroom.
