This topic seeks to teach students about how the study of number and algebra complement each other and how these core understandings support children's investigation and problem-solving. Children's understanding of number and algebra is significant for learning and progress in mathematics and will be explored through the use of the proficiency strands of the Australian Curriculum; understanding, fluency, problem-solving and reasoning. Children further develop their understanding of number through opportunities to explore mathematical ideas and apply number and algebra skills. Students will study the Early Years Learning Framework, Australian Curriculum and Numeracy Progressions; and consider how children apply their developing knowledge. Students will learn about effective pedagogies which promote the engagement and participation of children in mathematics in early childhood and school settings.
