[EDYS 252] Quantitative Reasoning and Numeracy
This course is a theoretical and practical investigation into the use of mathematics, and the development of mathematical knowledge and skill, focused on children and youth in both school and informal settings. Students in this course learn about the development of quantitative thinking; cognitive processes underlying literacy and language; pedagogies of mathematics; data and statistics; and the roles of technology in quantitative contexts. The course includes attention to pupils with diverse social, intellectual, emotional, and physical abilities, as well as different levels of opportunity to learn. Students observe students at different ages engaged in a variety of mathematical activities, and undertake an independent participant/observation research project in a relevant setting of their choice.
