In the 7–10 school years, students continue to cultivate the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to use mathematics confidently across all curriculum areas. This continuing education course, developed using information from the State of Tasmania Department of Education, was designed to enhance students’ understandings of numbers, patterns, measurement, spatial reasoning, and data as they become more proficient in mathematics. In addition, organization, planning, and teaching/learning strategies to help teachers support students in becoming confident communicators, critical thinkers, and informed math learners are presented.
1. Identify the characteristics of effective numeracy teachers as they help students develop their knowledge, skills and confidence with math in the 7-10 school years.
2. Demonstrate how positive competencies in numeracy are essential for students’ successful learning at school and learning across the curriculum.
3. Describe how students can apply skills in estimating and calculating and using patterns and relationships to solve and model everyday problems in a wide range of authentic contexts.
4. Identify how students can use fractions, decimals, percentages, ratios and rates, and how they can develop proportional reasoning skills in order to apply them to real world situations.
5. Discuss methods to teach spatial relationships and measurements, and how to interpret statistical information in years 7-10.
6. Evaluate how assessment can be used to monitor actual learning against what the students are expected to learn.
7. Assess the key aspects of a whole school commitment to improving numeracy achievement in 7-10 grade.
