Analyse Modelling in School Mathematics - HBEDAMU

Honours Year module NQF level: 7 Credits: 36
Module presented in English
Co-requisite: HBEDTRD
Purpose: To identify the nature and quality of mental models and schemata in Mathematics Education. Studying the relationship between modelling, symbolising and problem solving will reveal to them the deeper nature and value of pedagogical content knowledge in Mathematics Education. Misconceptions will provide powerful teaching opportunities to adjust and strengthen mental models about specific mathematics concepts. The Hons BEd (Mathematics Education) will provide professional educators and teachers at a post-graduate level with a clear understanding of the way knowledge in Mathematics Education are formed, how students understand mathematics and how they represent their understanding. This module includes a research report.
