The course aims to equip the prospective teachers with the necessary pedagogical content knowledge for the teaching of basic contents in mathematics in the intermediate grades. Understanding and appreciation of key concepts and skills involving numbers and number (whole numbers, number theory, fractions, decimals, ratio and proportion, percent and integers); measurement (time, speed, perimeter, circumference and area of plane figures, volume and surface area of solid/ space figures, temperature and meter reading); geometry (parallel and perpendicular lines, angles, triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, circles and solid figures); patterns and algebra (continuous and repeating patterns, number sentences, sequences and simple equations); statistics and probability (bar graphs, line graphs and pie graphs, simple experiment and experimental probability) as applied using appropriate technology in critical thinking, problem solving, reasoning, communicating, making connections, representations and decisions in real life. Various principles and appropriate teaching approaches, methods and techniques associated with Mathematics Instruction towards assuming responsibility for independent learning will be emphasized.
