Kursinhalt

Improve your subject knowledge of numbers as part of the maths curriculum

We use numbers every day, but do we really appreciate how they work?

There are lots of fascinating connections and patterns to explore once you delve into the mathematical structure of how simple numbers work.

On this course, you will develop an understanding of the underlying mathematical structure of everyday mathematics.

You will learn why mathematical methods work and find the connections between different areas of maths so that you can appreciate the interconnected nature of different maths topics.

This course is designed for teachers and educators who don’t have a specialism in maths but wish to learn mathematical methods and improve their understanding.

This includes:

  • new teachers, student teachers or people just about to start their teaching career who are interested in increasing their mathematical subject knowledge

  • inexperienced teachers of mathematics for whom mathematics was not a major part of their degree

  • non-specialist teachers of mathematics whose expertise lies elsewhere.

  • teachers of science

  • teachers of technology, engineering, and other related subjects

  • parents wishing to support their children.
