Description

In this module, we explore how educators can support children’s maths and numeracy learning in day-to-day practice, play and outdoor programs. We look at intentional teaching and child-led learning, and highlight the importance of educators modelling how to think and talk mathematically.

Suitable for educators at all stages of their professional development.

The module will provide you with an understanding of:

  • how to use maths and numeracy concepts in day-to-day practice with children
  • planning for mathematical learning
  • the role of children in planning the program, and
  • different learning environments for maths and numeracy.

Suitable for early childhood education and care workers at all stages of their careers. This module will take an estimated one hour to complete.

Completing Maths is Everywhere will contribute 1 hour of NESA registered PD addressing 7.2.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW. Courses completed after 17/8/2017 will be validated.
