Analyzing Mathematics Teaching
This course is the prerequisite to EDMA3217.
This course is designed to give participants insights of effective ways of presenting school mathematics to students in the lower grades at secondary schools. It builds on the content taught in EDMA2213 and EDMA2214 and highlights significant issues that emerge in mathematics teaching and learning. The course provides opportunities for the participants to plan for mathematics teaching and to critique mathematics teaching through the use of videotaped lessons with a view to having the participants reflect on their own teaching and to consider ways of improving their practice.
